Mary is a singular scented candle: named after writer Mary Shelley, the mother and author of Frankenstein, Mary pays tribute to a modern icon. An iconoclast of her time, the 19th Century, she denounces the values of a self-righteous English society. Emancipated, Mary Shelley marries a poet: together, they ll travel across Europe. If she fatally fights the establishment, she chooses adventure as her/a guiding light. The Mary perfume is theatrical, with a luminous depth: floral and spicy notes of immortelle, tuberose, star aniseed and cardamom hint at maverick travels, that a heady heart composed of patchouli, Cedar, Gaiacwood further transgresses. Mary is a subversive perfume: the testament of a rich interior life, it reveals the life of a cursed heroin. The Mary scented candle comes in a mat black glass, inside a box adorned with gold embossing: gothic illustrations by Lawrence Mynott sketch Mary Shelley holding a cadavre exquis. A drawing that hints back at her life as a visionary female writer.
