Athens Candle



[The eye of Greece]

"I think that Athens lies beyond good and evil, beyond beauty and ugliness.  I don't think cities are supposed to be beautiful anyway; I think they are supposed to be interesting.  They're supposed to be alive.  Athens is definitely alive." Afroditi Panagiotakou.  

Our ATHENS accord immortalises the juxtaposition of ancient and contemporary - a graceful clash of historical charm and renewed creative energy - an ode to the city's resilience and recent rise.

What one notices in Athens is that the sun sets differently -  hazy purple and pink hues adorn the Athenian summer sky, painting it the most vibrant of violets.  The fragrance is based on a walk through Plaka - an Athenian neighbourhood that sits beneath Acropolis. 

The warm summer air is sweetened by hints of jasmine and white night elm as Athenians water and tend to their balcony gardens in the early evening.  Livani grounds the accord - a final nod to the city's sacred Byzantine history and culture.

Top //   Olive oil, orange peel, thyme  

Mid //   Jasmine, night elm, white flower

Base //  Musk, livani, vanilla 

✨ 350 grams of scented soy candle.   45 hour burn time.


Keep the wick trimmed to 6mm to ensure even burning and ensure your first burn is long enough to create an even pool of wax along to surface of the candle - we recommend 4 hours.  This will avoid the candle from tunneling.  Ensure candle is free of any foreign or flammable materials including matches and wick trimmings before burning.  Keep wax pool free of debris.  Do not touch or move candle when it is burning/hot.  Store candle in a cool dry place below 25 degrees celsius and keep away from direct sunlight.  Stop burning when 2cm of wax remains at the bottom of the jar.  This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface or container itself.  Please note that the glass candle container will get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the wax has been consumed.
