Botany Bay Candle-Haeckels

£50.00

Sea salt air and cliff top botanicals  –  60ml

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 to an enzyme that helps algae survive in their salty seawater environment. Researchers found that the smell itself is produced by algae that form extensive blooms on the ocean surface. These blooms release an aromatic compound called dimethylsulfide (DMS) into the air.

We’ve created an aromatic snapshot of our surrounding coast. It is delicate blend of cliff grasses, sea lavender, sea water, chalk and alexanders. The Haeckels Cliff Breeze travel candle enables you to 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.
