Hollow Tree

1871 - Amor de Cosmos Candle

“British Columbia’s father of confederation, Amor De Cosmos, championed the cause of joining the Dominion of Canada and set the scene for the wild west coast as the place where people reinvent themselves. Photographer and newspaperman William Smith changed his prosaic name to become “the lover of the universe,” and BC’s second premier. He brought the railway to BC, created the province’s first forestry and environmental policies and established the legislature’s reputation as the most colourful political theatre in Canada.” ~ Mark Leiren-Young, Canadian author

The 1871 series scents evoke hues of musk dipped in bourbon, wrapped in the resinous mahogany and santal, saturated in cloves of cinnamon, and whispering hints of bergamot soaked with the splendour of tobacco and patchouli. This series is inspired by the era of pioneers and prospectors. 1871 is when BC joined Confederation. Ushered in by our second Premier; Amor de Cosmos and that is why we have the Railroad to the Pacific. Splendour Without Diminishment.
