The cultivation of the quince fruit may have preceded apples, but it was the Italians who first put the quince in a cookbook, Apicius, which gives recipes for stewing quince with honey and combining them with leeks. And so it is that Venetian Quince was created, a bold combination of three very different fruits – crisp apple, peach nectar and zesty grapefruit – with a top note of fresh air accord, flowering sheer white lily, and the invigorating pairing of crushed leaves and dew-drenched grass.
From the stone objets d'art of ancient Greece and the gems created for the Roman Emperors to Napoleon's coronation crown and Queen Victoria's beloved personal collection, the carved relief cameo has remained a timeless classic. Seda France captures the texture, richness and singular beauty of these historical motifs with the Cameo Collection, featuring eight fragrant candle creations, each hand-poured in decorative ceramics for Seda France's signature "no wrapping paper needed" gift giving.
Each Cameo Collection two-wick ceramic candle is made with 16 ounces of hand-poured paraffin wax and has an approximate burn time of 70+ hours.
