LIMITED EDITION CANDLE // RUSSIAN LEATHER FOR THE NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA

Almira Armstrong

Inspired by "an air of majesty", this limited edition candle pays homage to Catherine II's legacy as Russia's longest-ruling female monarch and an early proponent of women's rights.  The rich, comforting notes of Russian Leather, popular in Europe during the 18th century, invoke a sense of prestige and aristocracy, while rose and musk give the fragrance a distinctly feminine complexion.

Masterpieces from the Hermitage: The Legacy of Catherine the Great showcases one of the world’s greatest art collections. Featuring works by artists including Rembrandt, Rubens, Velázquez and Van Dyck, the exhibition offers a dazzling array of works including the finest group of Dutch and Flemish art to come to Australia. 

Visit the National Gallery of Victoria to see this once in a lifetime exhibition and pick up the limited edition candle whilst there!
