Queen Anne Boleyn was very fond of pomanders. I imagine having spent a great deal of her youth in the French court she was used to many strong perfumes about her person. It is said in her private chambers she kept bowls of dried rose petals and clove studded oranges. We have taken these notes and added sandalwood and French amber for a beautiful old fashioned fragrance.
This scent is named for Anne's beloved pomanders. From the middle ages right up to the 1700s, pomanders were carried, held to the nose, suspended on chains or girdles or hung in rooms to ward off bad smells, freshen clothes and make the wearer smell nice. It was also believed that these sweet smelling herbs and spices could ward off infectious diseases and protect the wearer from illness.
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.
