Description & Details
DS & Durga Breakfast Leipzig Candle: Frühstück with JSB at Café Zimmerman, 1723. Strong coffee, buttery almond pastries, pipe tobacco. Top Notes: javanese coffee, almond kutchen, pastry. Heart Notes: tobacco leaf, butter. Base Notes: leather upholstery, fireplace.
I wanted to create the scent of the café in Leipzig where Bach wrote his famous Java Cantata in the 1700s. I imagine tightly packed tables of people breakfasting over buttery almond pastries and strong coffee. Smoking pipes, reading newspapers, talking. Creamers of milk, kitchen steam, tobacco clouds, a hint of an old fireplace in the corner, and burgundy leather upholstery on the seats.
"I love breakfast. It’s really a passion of mine. This candle is our first overtly gourmand scent. It’s light-hearted. I love the idea that you can change your house into this legendary café at such a specific moment in time simply by lighting it." -D.S.
DS & Durga believes the power of scent is equal to that of sight and sound. A great perfume is a keyhole into another realm; an invisible landscape that you can enter and explore any time. Candles are made from soy-vegetable wax and use a cotton wick. Glasses candle vessels are meant to be reused and repurposed.
