D.S. & Durga '85 Diesel Scented Candle
The ’85 Diesel Candle by D.S. & DURGA takes you out on the open road. It’s the elegant, robust scent of sun-drenched saffron tanned leather seats entwined with damp earth and diesel smoke. A fragrance inspired by road-tripping in a 1980s Mercedes Benz, windows rolled down, singing “we must never break the chain” while leaving the smell of burning fuel in your wake.

– Saturdays and Sundays are NOT classed as working days.
– Orders placed after 9am, during the weekend or on a Bank Holiday will be processed the following working day.
– Safe Place: If ‘leave in a safe place or with a neighbour’ is selected for delivery we can accept no responsibility for missing or lost items. Couriers often leave parcels outside properties as standard – if you would NOT like your parcel left unattended please state it clearly or change your shipping address to one with a secure safe place. Otherwise the delivery location will be left up to driver discretion.
– Delivery Days & Times: Our couriers deliver every day of the week between 8am and 8pm. If your delivery address is not accessible during these times (such as a business with restricted opening times) please provide safe place instructions or change your shipping address to one more suitable.

– Missing parcels: Delivery disputes or problems with delivery need to be brought to our attention within 7 days of the shipping date, after this date we can accept no responsibility for missing or lost items.
– Incorrect Address: We can accept no responsibility for missing parcels due to incorrect address and postcode information being supplied to us.

To avoid issues, please double check your delivery address during the ordering process.
– Gifts: If you are sending a gift, to avoid delivery issues we recommend you give the recipient the tracking information for the parcel so they know to expect something and can add safe place instructions. Surprises are lovely, but often cause un-needed issues.

- For optimal burning, trim your wick to 5mm before each lighting to avoid smoking and overheating.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle sits.
- The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquefy. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
- Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than 1cm of wax at the base.
- Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
- The candle jar will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling
- Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centred.
'85 Diesel Reviews
Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Please remember that sense of smell will vary from person to person. We’re proud to say that all customer reviews are independent, authentic and do not represent the views of Osmology.
My favourite of the DS & Durga collection. A powerful but not overwhelming scent that is defiantly urban.
Far too slender wick and poor scent. Disappointed.
Love the scent. Powerful and impactful. I love the brand. But...the wick is far too slender so it doesn’t burn consistently and therefore creates the dreaded “well” of doom. Bit disappointed for such an expensive candle.
This is one of my favourite D S Durga candles
Exceptional with a twist, like all the Durga candles!
