Henry VIII and Catherine Parr Perfume Oil
$20.00 – $85.00
After the death of Catherine Howard, Henry took twice married Catherine Parr as his wife. She was plainer than the others but had a great patience and skill in dressing the ulcer which festered on his leg and needed constant attention from a light hand. She had the gift of not provoking him, and gave him a good deal of solace in the last years of his life. After he died, she married Thomas Seymour but is purported to have found out that he was unfaithful to her while she was pregnant with her first child. She died from complications in childbirth. Her great legacy was her tireless arguing to restore the Ladies Mary and Elizabeth to the line of succession. Catherine Parr’s fragrance is Red musk, neroli (for her many marriages), sandalwood, and linen.
