Taormina Jewel

Sicilian Blood Orange, Cinnamon & Cloves

Sitting at Shatulle in the Piazza Paladini, the citrus trees are heavy with fruit - even the oranges are juiced with blood! Sipping a Campari & soda in the Kodachrome light, I cast a wary glance at Mount Etna hazy in the distance. The temperamental volcano appears quiet, well - for today, at least.

Indeed, the whole of Taormina is quiet this time of year - none of that raucous seasonal crowd. It's so quiet, in fact, you can hear the distant echo of stilettos on cobblestones (how do the Italians manage that anyway?).

All candles are hand poured with Love in London with soya wax, recycled glass and environmentally friendly packaging. See our Ethics page for details.

A UK based women's charity will receive £1 for each Large and 50p for each Small candle sold.

Candles are available in two sizes:
– Large candle: burn time of around 60 hours.
– Small candle: burn time of around 30 hours.
