Sea salt air and cliff top botanicals
The fresh, salty smell of the ocean is one of the most distinctive smells on the planet, evoking memories of crashing waves and sandy beaches. Scientists have finally unravelled how the seaside odour is created, tracing it back Now scientists have finally unravelled how the seaside odour is produced, tracing it to an enzyme that helps algae survive in their salty seawater environment. Researchers found the smell itself is produced by algae that form extensive blooms on the ocean surface and release an aromatic compound called dimethylsulfide (DMS) into the air. We've created an aromatic snapshot of our surrounding coast, a blend of cliff grasses, sea lavender, sea water, chalk and alexanders, to give you a travel candle so you take the ocean with you wherever you are. Made with a high quality woven cotton wick and eco friendly soy wax in a thick glass surround. Gives an approx. burn time of 15 hours.
For the first time that you burn your Haeckels candle, allow it to burn until the whole top is liquid with wax. This allows for an even burn the next time it is used.
