THE SCENT: Step back in time to “City South”, with Flame Noir Candle Co.’s original, all natural, bookish soy candle inspired by DI Jack Robinson. Our handmade lead-free scented candle features a straitlaced blend of tweed and freshly pressed linen, complimented by the warm aromas of masculine frankincense, rich leather, and crisp bergamot.
THE SCENE: Step inside “City South”, Melbourne, 1929, and picture yourself in the world of Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. Let your imagination run wild as you see Constable Hugh Collins sneaking a call to his beloved Dot Williams from the rotary telephone at the precinct’s front desk. Peek into DI Jack Robinson’s office, where he sits behind his desk, pouring over stacks of files as he searches for a clue to his newest case – one which he will no doubt later discuss at length with his unofficial investigative partner, Miss Fisher, over a drink or two at Wardlow House. DI Robinson leans back in his leather office chair, fingers laced above his head – his freshly pressed dress shirt and three-piece suit in immaculate form. This is his domain. Hard work, an unwavering moral compass, and unflinching dedication to lawful methodology are his tools.

NOSE: Clean and masculine frankincense top notes mingle with sweet, citrusy bergamot middle notes, and finish with soothing hints of leather, musk, amber, tweed and linen in this reflective and complex scent blend.
GIFT IDEAS: The City South soy candle is the perfect housewarming, special occasion, holiday or birthday gift under $10 (4 oz) or $20 (8 oz) for fans of the Phryne Fisher’s Murder Mystery TV series and books, mystery lovers, coworkers, husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, best friends, detective fiction buffs, crime fiction writers, or really anyone attracted to clean and masculine scents with a vintage twist.
FEATURED DETECTIVE: Detective Inspector Jack Robinson. First appearing in the novel, “Cocaine Blues”, (1989), written by author Kerry Greenwood, DI Jack Robinson has appeared in every novel in the “Phryne Fisher” detective series, which consists of 20 novels to date. While happily married in the books, DI Jack Robinson’s character was reinvented as a love interest for Miss Fisher in the highly successful television show titled, “Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries”.
CHARACTER STUDY: Having returned to policing duty after wartime military service, Detective Inspector Jack Robinson operates out of the City South police precinct in Melbourne, Australia circa 1929. He is methodical and law abiding in his approach, making him the perfect foil to Miss Fisher’s less than orthodox crime-solving methods.
