Dark Galleon Candle
Leather – Woody
‘September 1620. Night time inside a merchant ship, Nagasaki port’
DARK GALLEON focuses on the moment of disembarkation when the merchant galleon arrives in Nagasaki, the South Island port city where the Spanish and Portuguese had set up camp for trade with the Japanese.
The pitch black hull of the galleon was saturated with the scent of spice barrels and trunks full of leather. The smokey notes of tar and cade wood give off a mysterious, hypnotising allure, like dying embers in a bonfire.
Notes include: Persian saffron, Spanish leather, Sandalwood, Frankincense and Cade.
