Old Dutch Church Soy Candle - 8 oz.
When we say “Old Dutch Church,” we really mean old. Like really old.
Completed in 1697, the Dutch Reformed Church of Sleepy Hollow, New York was built by Frederick Philipse I, Lord of Philipse Manor, and remained in use even after his lands were confiscated by the state after the American Revolution for siding with the Crown (blech). It was a relatively minor church until a certain mid-19th century story by one Washington Irving mentioned it and made it world-famous.
Today, nearly 150 years after the short story was published, worship services continue to be held in the church from June through September. Come October, the Church fills with ghost tours and other haunts that fill the pew-lined chapel with hints of musk, metal, and old wood.
You don’t want your house to smell like that, though, so we’ve made a few improvements to the smell of our Old Dutch Church 100% soy wax candle to ensure it stays spooky. On the top, you’ll find notes of anise and cinnamon; in the middle, a sweet, nectarine fragrance of ghost flower and jasmine. Finally, to ground the candle, we’ve added a little bit of patchouli and clove to remind you of an old wooden church without actually making your home smell like an old wooden church.
Burn time is approximately 50 hours.
