Why we love it: Collection of hand-made candles based on the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck (Latin arcānus– mystery). These 22 cards can be interpreted as a person’s spiritual path from birth to perfection. This candle is marked with number 6 of the Major Arcana – The Lovers.
Head Note: Grapefruit, Orange Blossom (Neroli), Vanilla
Heart Note: Amber, Oriental Spices, Rhubarb
Base Notes: Liquorice
This archetype is, first of all, a symbol of true, elemental, romantic love that makes one go head over heals. It is Heaven on Earth. However, at the same time The Lovers remind that love is often blind, therefore it is necessary to keep balance between heart and mind, between personal desires and universal human values. Everything in the world is dual, everything has a counterbalance: light cannot exist without shadow, fire cannot burn without wind, and the earth cannot bear fruit without water. When to reap and when to sow? Why is it necessary to choose? Which path is the right one? The answer is simple – the one you love.
