Whilst bravery remains a key asset of all our muses at Lauren Dickinson Clarke, there is perhaps no woman that has displayed so much courage in the face of adversity as Gloria Killian. Incarcerated for 17 and a half years for an unspeakable crime that she did not commit, the promising former law student had her freedom stripped away by the hands of a contriving murderer.
It seems not only appropriate, but fundamental that our latest scented candle ‘Prisoner’ pays homage to Gloria’s empowering tale of injustice. She has earnt a rightful place among the array of incredible women that characterise all of our Moody Muse candles at LDC. Yet her story is not solely one of bleak tragedy, but also redemption and wholehearted kindness in the least likely of places. Let’s take a look at how Gloria redefined the ‘Prisoner’ status forever.
