Rebellion, freedom and passion are the three key ingredients in this candle’s scent, inspired by the tales told by Mastenbroek’s grandmother, May. A proud Irishwoman, May would tell a young Ruth stories of how County Cork, her beloved home, was the last stronghold against the Vikings and later, its people defiant in the face of the English, earning Cork the nickname Rebel County. Mastenbroek has deftly interpreted this with freely fresh and wild herbs, hot headed, fiery amber, and oceanic notes that pay tribute to Cork’s spectacular coastline.
