Who is Persephone?

Daughter of Demeter, Persephone was kidnapped by Hades, becoming trapped in the Underworld after eating pomegranate. A deal was struck and Persephone was eventually rescued, led back to the land of the living by Hecate's twin torches. However, now married to Hades, Persephone was bound to remain half the year in the Underworld as part of the agreement. And so, the world dies every autumn as Demeter mourns her daughter's departure, but blooms to life in the spring when Persephone returns. Despite the myth of her kidnapping, Persephone and Hades are one of the only examples of faithful monogamy in the Greek Pantheon and Persephone rules the Underworld with Hades as his equal.


Like the goddess of the Underworld and Spring, our Persephone Candle is a delightful contradiction. With a crackling wooden wick that echoes the flames of Hades, you'll be transported to a realm where the sweet aroma of juicy pomegranate fills the air, tempting you like the forbidden fruit. But fear not! Just like Persephone's journey from the underworld, the grounding scent of sandalwood surrounds you, guiding you back to the land of the living. A complex scent, our Persephone Candle is mysterious and enchanting as the goddess herself.

Part 3 of 4 for the husband sampler pack! I partially picked this because of Lore Olympus, but also because pomegranate as a candle scent was very intriguing to me as I love the fruit. This candle smells sooo good, I wish I had opted for the larger size (and I will definitely be buying the larger size!). If you like fruity scented candles, definitely consider picking this one up.

One of my favorite scents from this shop, alongside Dionysus! After reading the existing review on this page, I was apprehensive but picked this one up during a recent sale and was pleasantly surprised enough to place a separate order for another. Very soothing candle with an enticingly warm scent that fills the room. Thank you!
