Bonfire

From: 5,00 

The best part about the beginning of November in Britain is the fact that no sooner have we finished trick or treating then we have to start preparing for Bonfire Night. Bonfire Night can be traced directly to events that occurred around the beginning of November in 1605, known as The Gunpowder Plot, an attempt to overthrow the government of King James and the Church of England. It was on the 5th November 1605 that our (anti-) hero Guy Fawkes was caught red handed in the cellars of the Houses of Parliament with several barrels of gunpowder (according to sources, the actual number varies between 20 and 36; suffice to say, it was enough!). Mr. Fawkes and his fellow were tried as traitors and executed.

Our version of Bonfire has a decidedly American, point of view. We remember a less complicated and less regulated time, when we would rake the fallen, dried maple leaves from the lawn into large piles, which our fathers would burn, making the bonfires of our youth. It is that smell of burning maple leaves that is the heart of our Bonfire cologne. What recollections does it raise for you?

    Ah, brings back memories of a night at Lewes.

    This is a green smokey scent; as described, not too strong. Layers well.

  2. Warm, deep and delicate. Takes me under a lighted Christmas tree.
