Flickering candlelit enchantment, this hand-poured ode to spring is inlaid with rose larkspur and natural birch sprigs to perfectly represent a cherry blossom branch in full bloom. As the Botanical Cherry Blossom Candle’s center burns, the wax-encased botanicals are beautifully illuminated while a lovely fragrance—cherry blossom and pink freesia overlaying vanilla musk—wafts in the air. Wax. Burn time, approximately 120 hours. Made in the USA. 5"h. x 4.5"dia.
Springtime in Washington D.C. is a celebration of the budding beauty of cherry blossoms, the international hope for peace that prompted Tokyo’s gift of the cherry trees to the United States in 1912.
