Description & Details

DS & Durga Spirit Lamp Candle: Tea service at the colonial parlor of Mme. Revere, topless psychic. Hot silver heated by open flame. Bohea vapours, radiant heat, milk. Top Notes: hot metal, peach water, petitgrain. Heart Notes: white ginger, coconut milk. Base Notes: radiant musk, bohea tea.

Spirit Lamp should smell like the flame on a silver tea service in a place of ill repute in colonial era Boston. The spirit lamp was used for light and heating fueled by alcohol or “spirit.” I can picture the teapot—perhaps smithed by Paul Revere (he crushed silver when not shouting alarms on horseback).

Inside the water boils with legendary bohea tea (an oolong probably from near the Wuyi Mountain preserve).The steam is peachy, airy, with touches of bleached ginger and coconut milk. The air of a colonial brothel given respite by the freshness of this rare tea drunk to stay up all night reading fortunes in a smoky den.

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.
