TOP NOTES: Rhubarb, Grapefruit
MIDDLE NOTE: Wild Rose
BASE NOTES: Santal Accord, Vetiver
When I made my mind up that I was going to attempt to create a rhubarb scented candle I knew that I’d need to put my own twist on it. I didn’t want it to be an over the top sweet scent, or anything single noted and lifeless.
Ask anyone from the prairies about their connection to rhubarb and they have a favourite memory - being out in the garden with grandma, having her pick a stalk that she’d dip in a bit of sugar, using the same little cup each time. The harvest desserts - pies and cakes. Going down the basement, lifting that big heavy lid of the chest freezer and finding it filled with bags full for the winter.
With a connection that strong and I knew that I’d have to craft something special. One of my most challenging scents to date, my take on Rhubarb features notes of fresh cut rhubarb, wild prairie rose (because for me the two were always present in our garden on the farm), santal, grapefruit and vetiver. Tart and fresh, with a slight musk and dryness.
