North Indian forest tree flowers and earthy woods.
The Rama Won’t You Please Come Home Candle by D.S. & DURGA takes its inspiration from the ancient Hindu legend of Rama. Filled with the scent of North Indian forest tree flowers and earthy woods, this enchanting fragrance captures the light and spirit of Diwali.
“Diwali is a major holiday in India and South Asia. The air all over is ripe with festivity. Families come together to clean, pray, and light candles welcoming Lord Rama and Sita back from exile in the forest, among other religious happenings for Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. I love the sheer abundance of aromatics you encounter in India from food, flowers, and perfume – seemingly everywhere. Diwali candles called diyas, are usually oil or wax-based in clay lamps. Our candle recalls tree flowers and tropical woods from the forest where Rama and Sita were exiled, emboldened with a heart of opulent white flowers – tuberose and gardenia. Hopefully, it can be part of the festivities, act as lovely reminder of joy throughout the whole year, or just let people catch a whiff of the festivity on the Subcontinent.”
– D.S & Durga Founder
“Brooklyn-based DS & Durga takes an experiential approach to scent, building its fragrances around evocative memories or images. The new “Rama won’t you please come home” conjures north India, Diwali and the story of the titular Hindu god Rama. It is a floral, earthy and subtly exotic scent, with teak, gardenia, sandalwood, tree flowers and tuberose. It’s a subtle scent but perceptible almost immediately after lighting, and lingers in a room long after the flame has been extinguished.”

- 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.
