Sorry, this item is not available.
When unbridled lust is confined within a single sexually charged location, the perfume is unmistakable. This torrid fragrance is of sultry orris root, musk, ancient civet, peru balsam and rarest plai. 7.4oz. Approx 40 hours.
Modern Alchemy candles are comprised of a patented blend of high-grade European waxes, many of which are used for luxury body creams and lotions. This formula not only burns cleaner than any other candle, it also houses the delicately balanced essential oils without altering their fragile character. The wax in these candles is specifically designed to have a low melting temperature, thereby yielding a greater liquified surface area by which to better release the fragrance held within. The wick used in all Modern Alchemy candles is hand-braided cotton and lead-free.

ohhhh man i love brothel , no joke this is what a friend said while i had this burning: my bedroom door opens , friend says " hmmmmm ... smells like sex in here but i see your beds made . is that comin from the candle ?" the fragrance is balmy , powdery , sweet , musky w/ a not so subtle civet . for those not familiar w/ civet ill be blunt , civet smells kinda like poop . this candle smells like youd imagine it to be based on its official description and the accords listed . its rich , fuzzy and has a good throw ( this review is based on the new batch of history candles circa spring2013 ) . its somewhat similar to diptyque's Musc candle but brothel is superior imo . the balsam aspects envelop and smooth the musk and civet by adding its characteristic thick , somewhat vanillic sweetness . some a my fav perfumes are quite balmy , guerlain's tonka imperiale , frederic malle's musc ravageur , serge lutens musc koublai kahn . actually brothel shares many characteristics with musc koub kahn , just not as civet heavy but u get the idea if youre also into high end niche perfumes which is my fav hobby . throw 3.5 outta 5 , fragrance 4 / 5 . u dont have to be horny to appreciate this candle
Sensual & Mysterious...

Brothel is one of the most sensual, dark, mysterious candles I have burned. This candle still leaves me wondering if I really enjoy the scent or not. There is something very dark about it. It has a very perfume-like quality to it that sort of reminds me of the coming together of an incense shop and a woman my grandmother used to play cards with every Saturday night. It's like two strange worlds crashed into eachother and created this perfume-like, musc based fragrance. The downfall of this for me was the fact that I was allergic to one of the notes. I had such massive sneeze attacks everytime I burned this one that I eventually had to pass the candle off to someone else. I did like it though despite my odd statement of it smelling like an incense shop melding with an older woman's perfume. There is something sensual about it that is really oddly compelling. It's very heavy and thick in the air when you burn it. If you like a cloying, sweet, perfume-like fragrance try this out. The vessels that Modern Alchemy create are beautiful and reusable. I put tea lights in them and they glow so beautifully. I wish I hadn't been allergic to this scent so I could have gotten more acquainted with it's mysterious ways. :)
