The following is a first hand description of King Henry VIII made in a dispatch from the Venetian diplomat Pasqualigo in 1515:
“His Majesty is the handsomest potentate I ever set eyes on; above the usual height, with an extremely fine calf to his leg, his complexion very fair and bright, auburn hair combed straight and short, in the French fashion, and a round face so very beautiful that it would become a pretty woman, his throat being rather long and thick.... He will enter his twenty-fifth year the month after next. He speaks French, English and Latin, and a little Italian, plays well on the lute and harpsichord, sings from book at sight, draws the bow with greater strength than any man in England and jousts marvelously... a most accomplished Prince.”
Sadly Henry VIII would not remain such a graceful figure in history but he is one of the most infamous English Kings - he married six times and two of his wives were beheaded.
There is a famous rhyme describing the various ends of the wives of King Henry VIII:
"Divorced, Beheaded, Died,
Divorced, Beheaded, Survived"
Wax Melt Bars with a powerful 10% fragrance oil encased in a high-quality natural blend of soy, rapeseed, coconut, and plant wax. Most candle brands (even the most popular American one) only use 5 to 7% fragrance oil. Your high-end French luxury brands use 10% and that is the percentage we use.
They are a bit more expensive but when you take into account that each of these melts will give you the same scent power as a full-size candle in burn time, you will see what a great value they are.
We leave the wax untinted because we feel it gives a much cleaner burn and gives a more elegant feel. Each bar has 6 easily divided melts. Each melt has a 20hr burn life making these bars an amazing 120hrs of burn life!
These will release aromas for approx. 20 hours in a warmer before it starts to lose it's potency. Ideally you should warm them for no more than 2 hours at a time. After that point your space will be saturated with scent and you will become nose-blind.
Use in a wax tart burner either electric or tea light warmed. These can also be used as scented drawer/wardrobe inserts.
Each individual Tart is good for a 20 hr scent life burn and is packaged in a clear recycled PET container.
Do NOT store near direct heat or sunlight and never leave a tart warmer unattended.
