Ranthambore Candle


A morning game drive in Rajasthan’s endless wildlife reserve, what once was a royal hunting ground. A true golden silence surrounds you as you drive to the lake’s edge.

The sun comes up, slowly warming the air. Oranges and pinks fill the sky. You smell hay and something sweet, foreign to you. An electricity descends. All look to the right, somehow, knowing. With great ceremony, a tiger emerges from the rushes.

Notes: Restrained tobacco, bright ylang ylang and bergamot.

Now a larger 215 grams.

Around 55 hours of burn time if properly cared for. Please ensure that the entire top of the candle has melted during the first lighting, as this prevents tunneling. Do not leave candle burning for longer than four hours or so, or however long it takes to achieve a full melt pool across the top of the candle. Leaving a candle to burn for too long allows carbon to collect on the wick and leads to soot and flickering and other undesirable things. Trimming the wick before each use promotes clean burning.
