Elegant and charming fragranced candle
8 oz / 236 ml
We are entirely in love with Ellis Brooklyn’s scents, which are blissfully free of endocrine-disrupting phthalates. And it’s no wonder they’re so terrific: they’ve been created by Bee Shapiro, a beauty and style writer for The New York Times, Vogue, and others, and Jerome Epinette, the genius behind Byredo and other chic fragrances.
Fable is — we'll admit it — our favorite of them all. It's an elegant, charming, chic floral, featuring top notes of neroli and black currant, that's inspired by the Aesop fable. As Bee puts it, "Set in the forests of Arcadia, this elegant orange blossom scent is roused by the first meeting of Androcles and the Lion. The gorgeous initial bloom plays with dewy violet, petitgrain and honeysuckle before being rounded by the warmth of crisp amber and cedarwood. The moral of the famous Aesop fable is kindness—Androcles removes a thorn from the lion’s paw—a notion as lovely as the fragrance."
We actually love Fable so much that we've thought, "We wish we could just live in a Fable-scented world." And voila: the Fable Terrific Scented Candle appeared on our doorstep. (If only everything else in life could be so easy.)
The phthalate-free fragrance has been expertly blended into a soy wax. The wick is made of hemp. It's all very healthy and just so lovely. Perfect for gifting, but we have to warn you that you may end up keeping it for yourself.
