Day of the Dogs Candle: This floral scent captures the heart of Kukur Tihar, the Nepalese day of celebration for our four-legged companions.
On the second day of Diwali in the heart of Nepal, exotic floral garlands are lovingly strung together to adorn the neck of every single dog. Scented oils made from precious woods and temple incense are used to anoint their furry heads, showing that every dog is honoured and deeply loved. This life-affirming display of companionship creates an intoxicating perfume of jasmine, frangipani and neroli which fills the air and lifts the spirit. Warmed by the woody undertones of patchouli and balanced by citrus fruit and orange blossom, this scent captures the exotic fragrance, joy and warmth of this magical ‘Day of the Dogs’.
This luxury candle is made from 100% sustainable vegetable wax with the finest perfumes and essential oils to help cover and neutralise odours in the home.
Product size: 180g
Top notes of sweet orange & neroli, heart notes of jasmine & frangipani and base notes of patchouli & musk.
Most luxury candles only use synthetic fragrance oils to create their aromas. Those that claim to be odour neutralising either just mask smells or claim to use specialist chemicals or enzymes to eliminate odour molecules.
Dog-about-town doesn’t believe in using unnecessary chemicals around our beloved pooches and harsh enzymatic cleaners can only ever be effective through direct surface contact (i.e. using cleaning products and elbow grease – not simply lighting a candle).
This luxury range of odour neutralising fragrances have been designed with you and your family in mind. Made using 100% sustainable and natural vegetable wax, high quality phthalate-free perfumes and a carefully curated mix of pure essential oils that are proven to have anti-microbial, anti-fungal and cleansing properties to naturally neutralise pet and other household odours in the air.
How to get the best from your candle
On first use allow the candle to melt across the entire surface of the container before extinguishing. Don’t burn the candle for any longer than 2-3 hours at a time and trim the wick to 5mm before each use to ensure there is no soot build up. These steps allow the odour neutralising essential oils to sufficiently heat up and release their cleansing properties in to the air. It also means your candle will burn efficiently and last longer.
Tip from the perfumer: to prolong this beautiful aroma, instead of blowing out the candle you should extinguish the flame by dipping the wick in to the molten wax. Always ensure the wick is upright again before the wax hardens.
