City heatwave downpours and muggy summers day relief.
The Concrete After Lightening Candle by D.S. & DURGA is inspired by the moment when the heaven’s finally open, giving respite on a muggy summers days. Electric crackle, downpour, panic grass, sizzling asphalt steam.
“This candle has slightly aniseed and green wood undertones. As with other D.S. & DURGA candles, it’s scent is delicate, complex and poetic rather than literal. It’s a beautiful choice for those with refined noses and small rooms.”
– Elizabeth, Osmology Founder
“The scent after it rains is a favorite aromatic genre of mine – and many people as it turns out. Perfumers have a few tools to use in the category of ozone – or things that smell like water and air. Geosmin is the scent molecule released from bacteria in dirt after it rains. What’s lovely, is that the Geosmin blends with different aromatics in different environments. Whereas in the forest it smells dank yet fresh, in the city you get the scent of hot asphalt and concrete quickly cooled by rain. It is as if the whole city is boiling, overlapping in scent, and when rain and thunder come, all is released into the air in an instant. It smells fresh, unique and only of summer in the city. Concrete After Lightning is simple – you have the air, rain, steam, and some of the weeds that grow in the cracks of New York City.”
– D.S. & Durga

- 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.

Warm Summer Night
A very unique and sultry scented candle. Doesn’t quite deliver on the concrete aroma suggested in it’s namesake, however it does deliver an irresistible and unique summer-like scent. There are definite notes of grass and rain, like a warm breeze venturing through a window on a hot evening. The candle is very high quality and burns slowly. Almost everyone that’s caught the scent in my household has asked about it and loves it too. It’s also a perfect candle for winter, as it has such a bright and uplifting aroma, the perfect candle for a bedroom or living space. As a side note the packaging and candle jar are also pretty cool. It’s worth the price tag as it’s so long lasting,I’d quite like to try other D.S & Durga products. 5/5 ...A crowd pleaser of a candle!
