Step back in time with Flame Noir Candle Co.’s original 221B Baker St. soy candle inspired by Sherlock Holmes. Our handmade, lead-free scented candle features an elementary blend of aged leather and savory pipe tobacco, nuanced with hints of Oriental opium and oud wood.
Step inside 221B Baker St., London, 1887, and picture yourself in the world of consulting detective Sherlock Holmes. Mr. Holmes sits sipping his afternoon tea, pouring intently over the pages of an antique book as streams of sunlight from the nearby window mingling with his fragrant pipe tobacco. The smoke fills the room with swirls of soft and hazy light.
Picture the rows of bookshelves lining the walls, overflowing with leather-bound books. Fine Oriental rugs are laid out on the hardwood floors like bohemian patchwork. Exotic, dark wood furniture decorates the room, while a delicate violin sits propped against a velvet sofa with the case still open.
Sherlock relaxes into his favorite antique leather armchair and ponders the evidence he has uncovered thus far on his newest and most perplexing of mysteries.
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.
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.
