Scents of Our Time #1 – One Minute Silence

The ‘One Minute Silence’ has found unsettling prominence among our everyday lives in the wake of recent atrocities, particularly here in Britain. It is a period of silent and respectful contemplation usually in the wake of a tragic event.

As an expression of the sentiment of the one minute silence, and as a means to reveal the capacity scent has for humility and quiet observation, I bring to you the One Minute Silence candle. A fragrance that bears witness to tragedy with respect and harnesses the notions of  humanity and compassion. It’s both a tool and companion for moments of meaningful silence.

Nominally relaxing, but with a view to ease the mind into respectful and meditative thought. This blend of frankincense, lavender and sandalwood affords a grounded mental capacity which allows you to engage in reflection and contemplation.
