The world’s first striptease in wax, the Scandalwood candle is a burning revelation from the house of Heretic Parfums and the scent-’tillating senses of Dita Von Teese and Douglas Little. Handsomely held in a tall, scarlet glass cylinder (16oz) Scandalwood diffuses a voluptuous concoction of mysore sandalwood, sweet coriander, orris butter, and bulgarian rose. Boasting 70 hours of titillating illumination, the Scandalwood Candle comes alive by flame: fire up and behold as a heat-sensitive image of the Queen of Burlesque goes from black gown to birthday suit. To restore her propriety, put lips together and blow.
Three years in the making, a patent-pending thermal reactive ink disappears when heated and reappears when cool. Inspired by burlesque, vintage perfume and the naughty barware that emerged during the 1940’s, the Scandalwood candle ignites imagination and seduces the senses.
Like all good things, Scandalwood (and its image of Von Teese) require a little patience: the transformation takes approximately ten minutes from the time the candle is lit. The longer it’s left to burn, the more revealed; once extinguished and things cool off, Dita’s dress will magically reappear…until you’re ready to turn up the heat again. Talk about a reason to stock up on matches!
