Step back in time with Flame Noir Candle Co.’s original St. Mary Mead soy candle inspired by amateur detective Miss Marple. Our handmade lead-free scented candle features a prudent blend of fragrant black tea, fresh cotton, whispering jasmine, and the soft airy scents of an English garden.

The Scene:

Welcome to St. Mary Mead, Downshire, England, 1930, and picture yourself in the world of amateur detective Miss Marple. Let your imagination run wild as you wander the quaint English village, admiring the brick cottages with thatched and shingled roofs, each with a garden brimming with flowers and perfectly manicured boxwoods.

Pass by the small shops on High Street before turning left on Vicarage Road. View the lovely fields of tall waving grass on the right. Turn at the Vicarage and look just to the left. Here you will see an inviting cottage climbing with ivy.

An elderly, white haired woman is enjoying her flower garden in the warm afternoon while surveying the town through a set of binoculars. If you have recently been visited by crime, you’re in luck. Amateur detective Miss Marple is always ready to solve any such calamity to keep St. Mary Mead safe.

Aromatic top notes of black tea and pressed cotton give way to soft floral middle notes and finish with hints of jasmine and amber in this old-fashioned, feminine fragrance.
