Bitter Orange - Candle 7oz
Bitter Orange was the fragrance of Agraria's very first product in 1970 – a handmade potpourri. This signature fragrance is a complex and subtle blend that permeates the air with addictive waves of clove, the zest of bitter orange and just a touch of cypress. It’s unique, spicy fragrance has been described by The New York Times as “uplifting, mysterious and androgynous in its appeal.”
Agraria was introduced in New York in 1975, at the front door of the original Henri Bendel’s at 10 West 57th, and each time someone opened the door, the fragrance floated out onto the sidewalk. Vogue Magazine quoted Michael Kors as saying, “I just thought 57th Street smelled like Bitter Orange.”
Agraria's Perfume Candles are presented in a decorative crystal glass that is a modern interpretation of the woven palm leaf cases that were an Agraria trademark in the 1980s.
The intricate glass pattern accentuates the movement of the flame to create a luminous and mesmerizing glow. Featuring hand-twisted lead-free wicks, each hand-poured candle is clean-burning and beautifully fragrant.
