It’s November 1695. Late afternoon in the Convent of Jesus Maria, Mexico City.
The kitchen of the Royal Convent of Jesus Maria is a sacred space with Baroque carvings in it’s cedar wood beams, thick stucco walls and earthenware pots that brew elaborate recipes. Among them a hot cocoa formula rich enough to unleash rapture signals a climax of the senses.
Arquiste's Anima Dulcis perfume was the inspiration for this candle. Its formula has been tweaked and adapted to work when it is set in hot wax.
