Katherine of Aragon: Ruby red pomegranates cloaked in a haze of solemnly reverent ecclesiastic resins.  

Scent Profile: Fruity, Resin/Incense.


Katherine of Aragon (16 December 1485 – 7 January 1536) was Henry VIII's ill-fated first wife. 

A dignified and stately Spanish princess, she was initially wed to Henry's elder brother, Arthur, until his premature death five months later. Seven years after the death of Arthur, she wed the newly-crowned Henry, who was, at that time, everything a Prince of the Renaissance should be: cultured, athletic, and dashing. 

Her marriage to Henry was a seemingly happy one for over a decade, full of genuine love and care. Unfortunately for Katherine, however, she suffered many miscarriages and stillbirths-- her only surviving child was a daughter, Mary. Her solace and refuge was her resolute Catholic faith, even as the King's eye turned to the younger Anne Boleyn.

In the end, Henry braved the Pope's wrath to divorce Katherine in search of an heir. She lived out her days separated from her beloved daughter and under house arrest, punished by the King for not renouncing her Catholic faith in the aftermath of England's split from Rome. 

She stubbornly maintained, until her dying day, that she was Henry's only legal wife and the true Queen of England.  


Available in candle tin or glass tumbler format.

Tins: Our 8oz candle tin measures 3" wide by 2" deep, and holds approximately 7 oz of wax by weight. The wax is topped with an overspray of iridescent glitter. The candles burn for approximately 30-35 hours.

Glass tumblers: These candles measure 3" wide by 3.5" tall, and contain 9 oz of wax for a burn time of 40+ hours. They are topped with a candle-safe glittering overspray.

The glitter I use is safe for use in candles, and the ultrafine particles will not clog your wick.

Turnaround time for candles is 2 weeks. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may occasionally receive a professionally-printed label with a handwritten scent name, similar to what is used in the Secret Menu candles. We are experiencing delays from our label printing service, and would rather not hold up your orders. If you feel strongly about receiving a particular label, please email us at sihayaandcompany@gmail.com and we will do our best to accomodate your request.
