Rama Won't You Please Come Home CandleRegular price $ 70.00
DS & Durga's candle to celebrate the Diwali holiday is scented with a rich blend of heady tuberose and creamy gardenia, floating above subtle greenery and elegant woods. A quintessential white floral blend.
From David Seth Moltz AKA D.S.
"Diwali is a major holiday in India and South Asia. The air all over is ripe with festivity. Families come together to clean, pray, and light candles welcoming Lord Rama and Sita back from exile in the forest, among other religious happenings for Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. I love the sheer abundance of aromatics you encounter in India from food, flowers, and perfume – seemingly everywhere. Diwali candles called diyas, are usually oil or wax based in clay lamps.
Our candle recalls tree flowers and tropical woods from the forest where Rama and Sita were exiled, emboldened with a heart of opulent white flowers – tuberose and gardenia. Hopefully it can be part of the festivity, act as lovely reminder of joy throughout the whole year, or just let people catch a whiff of the festivity on the Subcontinent."
