Aesop Ptolemy Aromatic Candle

Ptolemy Aromatique Candle, Aesop

Named after the Ancient Greek Egyptian astronomer, expect notes of earthy woods that, so much so, dare we compare to being encircled within an old-growth Japanese forest? There’s cedar, there’s cypress, and a bit of vetiver (that’s an Indian grass plant). This’ll add an air of sophistication to even the messiest of living rooms.
