Sweet, woody fig, blended with opulent spiced notes.
The Holy Ficus Candle by D.S. & DURGA takes the sweet, woody fragrance of fig, and blends it with opulent spiced notes of cardamom, frankincense, ginger root and saffron. This contemporary scent celebrates the revered fig tree of Siddartha and Lord Krishna, entwining the fruit with rich Indian spice to radiate warmth throughout your room.
“As with many of the D.S. & DURGA candle fragrances, the scent is intricate and subtle. Each note seems to change and develop as your nose explores through the layers of fragrance. At first I got mostly woodyness, but then the fruit and spice started to develop and the scent was then reminiscent of warm blackcurrant cordial. And finally, as if it had been there all along, the deep richness of fig came sweeping through.”
– Elizabeth, Osmology Founder
“India is in our DNA. It is Kavi’s motherland and it has always called to me. It is a big source of inspiration for the brand. The Bodhi – a holy fig tree – is revered in India for its association with Lord Krishna. It is also the tree Gotama Buddha received enlightenment under. You can still visit the place where the tree stood (and stands replanted) in the Bihar state. Holy Ficus is a loose fantasy based on the this tree. We took a classic fig accord and draped it in ginger, saffron, frankincense, and cardamom. It fills the room with a Indian spices, wonderful fruit, and hopefully a faded memory of something larger.”
– D.S. & Durga
“Indie brand D.S. & Durga is known for the intoxicatingly inventive combinations of notes in their perfumes—and their candles are no different. Strike a warm and spicy note with a hint of fig, cardamom, saffron, and ginger. “

- 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.
