Musky vanilla and citrus peel, folded together with cinnamon and juniper berry. This fragrance is reminiscent of a certain cologne that's been in our lives, for years...it's the scent that reminds us Cricklewood kids, of dad. As little kids this fragrance accompanied us from car, to bed, as we pretended to be asleep, just to have dad carry us inside. And, it was the scent that enveloped this great man years later, as we kissed his whiskery face, wishing he could be beside us forever.
Our parent's story began at the Cricklewood Coffee Shoppe in 1950, and it was in August 1955 that their first child was born, while stationed overseas In Germany. In March, 1956, this young family returned home as first class passengers aboard the ocean liner, SS United States. They disembarked in NYC amidst a snow storm, with just 25cents to their name, a room at the in-laws (that may not have been mom's preference, but that's another story) and the GI bill, that would fund dad's continued education for years to come. While this candle is about our dad, it's also in tribute to all of the great men and women, past and present, who've worked hard, loved well and served their country with duty and honor.
Cricklewood Gardens' natural soy wax candles are hand-poured and made in the USA. Did you know natural soy burns about 95% cleaner than petroleum based paraffin wax candles? Though paraffin might be easier to work with, we feel crafting our candles from vegetable based, non-toxic and renewable resources is the better choice. Be sure to follow our first burn guidelines for a long, smooth burn.
