Krokos Scented Candle
Smells like saffron / cinnamon / oak
It is called “the king of spices”, costing 4 times its weight in gold. Use of saffron dates way back pre-classical Greece where murals found on the Minoan palace in Crete were depicting young women harvesting crocus flowers. Nowadays, the homonymous village of Krokos in Kozani is the only area in Greece, where saffron is systematically cultivated, and it is classified as First Grade DPO product by the European Commision due to its superior quality.
In Krokos we captured this powerful aroma in a sensual woody blend of oak and cinnamon, along with a hint of suede, that exudes a refined and unhibited luxury.

Care & Safety
Always trim wicks to 0,5cm before lighting. The first time you light your candle, let it burn for 3-4 hours to allow the melted wax to reach the edge of the container and to prevent your candle from tunneling.
Do not place a burning candle near anything that can easily catch fire like curtains, clothes and papers. Place candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. Keep lit candles away from drafts, ceiling fans and any air currents. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave a room or before going to sleep or if the flame gets too close to the candle holder or container. A candle should not be burned for more than four hours at a time. Discontinue burning a candle when 0,5cm of wax remains in the container.
