THE SCENE: Step inside “221B Baker St.”, London, 1887, and picture yourself in the world of consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. Let your imagination run wild as you watch Mr. Holmes sipping his afternoon tea and pouring intently over the pages of an antique book – streams of sunlight from the nearby window mingling with fragrant pipe smoke – filling the room with swirls of soft and hazy light. Picture the rows of bookshelves lining the walls, the fine, Oriental rugs laid out on the hardwood floors like bohemian patchwork, the exotic, dark wood furniture carefully paced, while a delicate violin sits nearby with the case still open. Watch as Sherlock relaxes into his favorite antique leather armchair to ponder the evidence he has uncovered thus far on his newest and most perplexing of mysteries.
SCENT NOTES: Fine aged leather, pipe tobacco, Oriental opium and oud wood with hints of cedar, cherry wood, patchouli, amber, clove, evergreen, rosemary, orchid, jasmine, ambrette seed and library books.

NOSE: The top note of this candle is aged, rich leather. When combined with aromatic pipe tobacco middle notes and a golden opium, exotic spice and resin-rich wood finish, the outcome is earthy, masculine, and complex.
