Old Soul Artisan Day of the Dead Soy Candle
Fragrance notes: orange and chili pepper
The Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos is a beautiful tradition that honors ancestors and deceased loved ones. The celebration venerates the cycle of life and reaffirms the connection to the spirit world with offerings of food and gifts to the departed. Bright orange and yellow colored marigolds, candles, and elaborately painted sugar skulls adorn both home altars and cemeteries alike. Meticulously crafted desserts and breads are shared with family, friends, and the spirits of ancestors. This multi-day event immediately following Halloween is a time of spirited celebration and memory sharing. Mexico City hosts a large Day of the Dead parade featuring skull imagery in just about every form possible from large floats and puppets to celebrants performing traditional Mexican dancing and groups of ‘Catrinas’ wearing formal attire with artistic and unique skull-painted faces.
Day of the Dead is a lively blend of sweet and tangy orange with the powerful kick of spicy chili pepper. This fragrance is bold, as only one inspired by Mexico’s Día de los Muertos can be. Infused with natural essential oils, this vibrant aroma was created in memoriam of our ancestors and to honor the cycle of life connecting living and departed spirits together. Get caught up in the festivities with this fragrance that captures the energy and passion of Day of the Dead celebrations.
