Gametee Halloween Inspired Candle - Transylvania to England
From the Captain's log of the Demeter, travelling from Varna to Whitby...
Still fog, which the sunrise cannot pierce,I know there is sunrise because I am a sailor, why else I know not. I dared not go below, I dared not leave the helm, so here all night I stayed, and in the dimness of the night I saw it, Him! God, forgive me, but the mate was right to jump overboard. It was better to die like a man. To die like a sailor in blue water, no man can object. But I am captain, and I must not leave my ship. But I shall baffle this fiend or monster, for I shall tie my hands to the wheel when my strength begins to fail, and along with them I shall tie that which He, It, dare not touch... (from Dracula, by Bram Stoker)
Bound for England, and heavy with a cargo of Transylvanian soil, the schooner Demeter arrived unmanned in a roaring tempest, ploughing into the sand and shoals of Whitby. Only her Captain remained of her crew, lashed to the wheel...
Count Dracula's Voyage
Be captivated by the allure of the aristocratic Count. Tread through the quiet decks of the Demeter and be enveloped in the darkest heartnotes of oak over a musk of magically-potent spices - nutmeg, mace, amber and saffron. The finishing note is a drop of fragrant elemi-oil incense.
This little schooner has travelled far; on the prevailing winds of trade routes in the Pacific, Indian, and Atlantic oceans, and the dark oak is perfumed with the spices she has carried. Now the rigging sings a sinister hymn as she is driven, pilotless, onto the storm weary shores of England... Carrying Dracula - the King of Vampires.
Highly sought after and extremely limited edition, our Halloween Candle 'Transylvania to England' is an ode in scent to 'Dracula' written by Bram Stoker in 1897, and is dedicated to Whitby, England, a place we dearly love.
