Inspiration Behind the Name

Have you heard of the Caesonia hololith?

Legend has it that Roman Emperor Caligula’s wife, Caesonia, was truly a beauty like no other. So much so, that he had her photo etched into a hololith (a ring made from a single piece of stone) and lined with gold to be admired and cherished forever.

This ring is one of the few Marlborough Gems (a collection of jewels collected over time by several Dukes of Marlborough) that exists today. If the legend holds true, this engraving is a symbol of appreciation to her everlasting beauty. This piece dates back to 37AD - 41 AD and will continue to carry on Caesonia’s legacy for generations to come. It is being auctioned by Wartski (a British firm of antique dealers) and is estimated to sell for around $750,000.00

In the same way that this ring carries on Caesonia’s legacy, our blue sapphire buddha candle is an elegant reminder of the grace and tranquility that the Buddha has taught us to live by, and this piece is an appreciation of that. The sapphire blue color is also especially important here because the stone is regarded in chakra theory to open the third eye to receive wisdom and insight.

Yes… I know what you’re thinking, “How does it make sense to buy a 24K gold lined Buddha candle if his teachings tell us to live in detachment of the material world?”  And to that I say: “We all need something in our face to remind us to live peacefully every day… Why not have it be something beautiful and adorning?” 

This collection is a work in progress. Here is a glimpse at the fragrance notes for this candle: Bergamot, Black Currant Leaves, Apple, Pineapple, Pink Berries, Birch, Patchouli, Jasmine, Musk, OakMoss, Ambergris, Vanilla.

Comes in a black Thompson Ferrier gift box.
