FRIEND OF THE NIGHT CANDLE
A 36 oz / 1kg five-wick candle in a striking ceramic vase designed with top Mexico City studios MARVA and SURCO. Highlighting the best of Mexican artisanship, from the Michoacán enameled clay vase to the intoxicating tuberose scent created by master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
August, 1400, Tenochtitlan, Mexico.
Mexican tuberose, also known as Amiga de Noche, has a dark story. According to Aztec lore, a bat was sent from the underworld to the heavens to attack Xochiquetzal, the Aztec Venus. The bat bit into her arm and from her blood was born the most intoxicating and seductive of night blooms, the “Friend of the Night”- a bridge between the natural and supernatural worlds.
Developed with Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
