D.S. & Durga - Breakfast Leipzig Candle
Frühstück with JSB at Café Zimmerman, 1723. Strong coffee, buttery almond pastries, pipe tobacco.
I wanted to create the scent of the café in Leipzig where Bach wrote his famous Java Cantata in the 1700s. I imagine tightly packed tables of people breakfasting over buttery almond pastries and strong coffee. Smoking pipes, reading newspapers, talking. Creamers of milk, kitchen steam, tobacco clouds, a hint of an old fireplace in the corner, and burgundy leather upholstery on the seats. I love breakfast. It’s really a passion of mine. This candle is our first overtly gourmand scent. It’s light hearted. I love the idea that you can change your house into this legendary café at such a specific moment in time simply by lighting it.
