Jonathan Ward Assassin Belarus
[sample] I know that many of you are familiar with Jonathan Ward candles so you won’t be surprised to learn that the newest variant, Assassin Belarus, maintains all the quality and integrity of previous offerings.
I’ve had this burning on and off over the past couple of weeks so I’ve had time to get to know it. The inspiration is historical espionage and the human ability to detect the scent of danger. You’ll find a deep amber hit base blended with birch tar oil and patchouli with a hit of leather. Using more ingredients in smaller quantities means a complex build that’s warming and tantalizing.
Top notes are cedar wood and nutmeg so the whole thing amounts to a full bodied, opulent and rich aroma that has a generous throw. I only need to burn for a little while to get my kitchen full of the scent – I’ve had the sun blazing in and really in my mind’s eye I have this as a dark evening candle but somehow it’s suiting sunshine giving off a radiance of its own. Don’t forget to trim your wicks – I’m a repeat offender on the non trim but finally the message has got through and I have been super careful with this one. It’s £48 HERE.
