Do not throw away your shot—at owning an Alexander Hamilton-Scented Candle!

Many people think there’s no better way to unwind after a long day than a hot bath, a glass of wine, and a copy of the Federalist Papers. 

But actually there is *one* better way to unwind. And it’s to do all of those things by candlelight, which is the way Alexander Hamilton intended for people in the bath to read his Federalist Papers. Because let’s face it: Federalist 12, “The Utility of the Union In Respect to Revenue,” just doesn’t feel as sexy in the glare of a modern light bulb. You want the flicker of a candle flame playing across the pages, making the words move and dance, drawing you with their hypnotic movement as you begin to sway along with them.

Plus, maybe a draft will blow the candle out, leaving you in the dark. And who knows what will happen in the dark when it’s just you and the Federalist Papers!

Anyhoo, the candle evokes the scents of the 18-year-old Alexander’s ocean voyage from the Caribbean to New York City, blending the wooden planks of the ship, the rum that was omnipresent in 18th century sailing, and a hint of sea air. It will feel as if you’re standing on the deck along with Alexander, gazing off into the future. (But not TOO far into the future, because he’s got some rough stuff coming.)

Note: If you’re on a pilgrimage to the Hamilton statue at the Treasury Department Headquarters, this is the perfect candle to light at its base! (Full disclosure: We cannot guarantee that the guards at the Treasury Department will allow visitors to light small metal canisters at the base of the Hamilton statue.)
