Fresh, green and woody, with eucalyptus and rainwater.
The Big Sur After Rain Candle by D.S. & DURGA takes us on a road trip along the epic Californian coastline. Its fragrance is fresh and full-bodied, green and woody, with notes inspired by the bright scent of eucalyptus groves and rainwater.
“This is a delicate and refreshing scent. The magnolia and eucalyptus offer a bright sweetness which is mellowed by the notes of rain. It reminded me of warmth and sunshine returning just after a downpour.”
– Elizabeth, Osmology Founder
“or breathtaking American vistas, I think Big Sur hovers somewhere at the top of the list. The river running down through the mountains hits the fog-covered sea. Sunsets over the pacific are next level. You can feel the magnetic pull of Asia on the other side of the vast water. As you drive down highway 1 – top-down, motorway music, the wind whipping – your car bends around each corner discovering a new jaw-dropping bridge, private beach, or sonorous mountain. Poets and mystics populate the magic place. And the flora of the California coast is extremely varied. By Big Sur, you have a wonderful micro-climate from the heat and the fog. Redwoods and other conifers hide groves off the side of the road. Eucalyptus abounds. But it doesn’t yet smell medicinal like when you encounter the oil in a sauna. It is still thick with green shoots saturated with their perfumed freshness. The long spears of the Eucalyptus dart out from the branch, eventually falling to the floor creating a dry russet underbrush. When it rains, the earth is soaked and the scent of the eucalyptus combines with the fog to make an almost natural medicine lodge. Through the cracks in the trees you can see the sweeping waves. “
– D.S. & Durga
“Transporting you to the plains of California after a desert storm, this unique candle captures the exact sensation of standing amidst fresh Eucalyptus, sea spray and wild magnolia. When you can’t fly to California, burn this instead.”
“A Brooklyn based label founded by David and Kavi Moltz. Their scents are original, storied, and inspired by nature, art, and everyday objects. Get their cool (literally and figuratively) Big Sur candle that hints of minty eucalyptus and wet wood. Products are in unique packaging so unboxing is an experience.”
“Brooklyn-based D.S & Durga is one of the best-looking niche fragrance brands to invest in today. The scents are remarkable, too – Big Sur After Rain clears the air with a hit of herbal eucalyptus, underpinned by wet grass and dew-kissed plants. Connecting the dots between sound and scent, the duo have created a playlist to match the mood of each votive – head to the brand’s website, and hit play as you ignite.”

“For some scent escapism, Coveteur senior beauty editor Hannah Baxter has been “craving anything that reminds me of a summer vacation spent hiking in the Catskills or visiting friends in Oregon. That means fir trees, evergreen, grass, cedar — warm, woodsy scents.” Among her favorites are Byredo Woods and D.S. & Durga Big Sur After Rain, the latter of which was crafted to smell like “rain water in eucalyptus groves off Highway 1.””
“The Brooklyn-based perfume brand takes a fresh and creative approach to scent, designing fragrances that evoke strong memories or impressions. The result is candles unlike anything else we’ve seen: try portable fireplace (like all the best bits of a smoky bonfire), tomb of the eagles (inspired by the ancient cliff-top sites of Orkney) and our pick for spring, Big Sur after rain. Its full-bodied, wet, eucalyptus scent conjures images of driving along the Californian coastline, warm sun on your face following a downpour.”

- For optimal burning, trim your wick to 1/4″ 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 ¼” of wax at the base.
- Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
- 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 centered.
Brooklyn perfume pioneers, D.S. & Durga have forged a cult following for their uniquely refined fragrances. Each scent conjures a fantastical world, where art, music and memory entwine.

Beautiful packaging, fresh scent, I agree that there is a bit of sweetness to it but it's fairly nicely balanced by the drier, woody notes so it doesn't bother me as much. They did manage to capture a little of the scent of greenery and rain!
Delivery was perfect too :-)
Scent Strength: Strong
The scent is amazing, you can smell it as soon as you walk into the room, even when it's not lit! Completely unique scent and gorgeous packaging!
Dreamy and high quality
This candle has a gorgeous, unique fragrance that truly smells like Big Sur after the rain! Very light and herbal. It burns beautifully and has an excellent throw. Beautiful modern design. Would definitely buy this again!
Big Sur After Rain
Scent Notes: Eucalyptus
Scent Strength: Medium
This is a unique fragrance like no other. Like sweet eucalyptus. Burns well & I love the packaging. If I have it burning in one room downstairs, the aroma drifts to the other rooms. We had friends over last week & they all commented on how lovely it smelled.
Smells exactly as the description
I bought this candle after seeing it on Chrissy Teigen’s Instagram and I wasn’t disappointed. I handed it to my husband to sniff and he immediately said “it smells like the woods after it’s rained”. It’s the perfect autumnal candle
Fresh but a little sweet
Scent Strength: Medium
Quite a strong scent when not lit means this does dominate a small room. Nice candle but I found overpriced vs what’s on offer in the £30-40 range
Perfect "boyfriend gift"!
Scent Notes: The sea, magnolia and wood
Scent Strength: Medium
I bought this candle as a gift for my boyfriend, as Big Sur is one of his favourite places. So glad that Osmology had it in stock! It is the perfect "masculine" fragrance, without being too woody. It arrived really quickly, too!
