Soirée Candle


Soirée candle in glass. 

Specially made for Comunn Eachdraidh Nis by Essence of Harris.

Soirée's citrus scent is inspired by John Nicholson 'Iain an Fiosaich' and his wife Nora Barney Cushing. While they are perhaps best known for building a church and house for the sheiling villages of Biliscleiter and Cuishader, they also built a Mission Hall in Adabrock.

It was here they held a Sunday School, and where Nora introduced a summer 'soirée' which became immortalised in Ness as 'Suairidh An Fiosaich'. The soirée was open to all and an impressive feast would be laid out. Most treasured of all, as the children left for home, was her parting gift of an orange.

Exotic, treasured and fondly remembered. It is this orange scent that inspires our Soirée collection.
