This literary candle has been inspired by a true classic of twentieth-century literature. F. Scott Fitzgerald's novel, extraordinary and beautiful, is the supreme achievement of the author's career. First published in 1925, this quintessential novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the mysteriously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, their easy living in a posh Long Island in summer 1922, and the lavish parties at a time when The New York Times noted: “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession”. It is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s. The original library scent includes a teakwood top note, cedar, and leather, followed by earthy sandalwood, dark musk, and patchouli.
