Warm coffee, buttery almond pastries and pipe tobacco.
The Breakfast Leipzig Candle by D.S. & DURGA is inspired by breakfast with Bach at Café Zimmermann, Leipzig.
Think good coffee, buttery almond pastries and pipe tobacco. Café Zimmerman was the backdrop to many of the first performances of Bach’s works, such as the Coffee Cantata. In 1723, the year Bach moved to Leipzig, it was the largest and best-appointed Coffeehouse in the city.
“This candle surprised me by being much spicier than I imagined. It’s warm blend of notes is really reminiscent of spiced buns and hot coffee and would be a great burn while reading the broadsheets and listening to Desert Island Discs. This candle will enliven your mind no matter how early or late in the day it is.”
– Elizabeth, Osmology Founder
“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.”
– D.S. & Durga

- 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.
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.

I really enjoyed buying this candle. I fell in love with the smell instantly. Brings very#hygee feelings.
i dreamed about this candle after reading the description and reviews. i bought it last week, it arrived yesterday...the scent is pleasant, sweet, but not as complex or rich as the description suggested. reminds me of a candle i bought for a fiver as a teenager.
additionally, the wrong wick seems to have been used - after trimming to the correct length, the candle self-extinguished in the melted wax after 2 hours...which can be fixed but not ideal for £60.
it certainly looks nice i guess!
