Sykon Scented Candle
Smells like fig / rosewood / vetiver
In the war of the Titans, in Greek mythology, when Zeus was pursuing the Giant Sykeus, in order to save her son, Gaia hid Sykeus on the ground in a secret location outside Attica and transformed him into a fig tree. This myth greatly justifies the prestigeous place Athenian figs had in ancient times for their sweetness and high nutrient value.
Sykon is made almost exclusively from the essential oil of the premium Attica fig variety that goes by the name “Black Royal”. A soothing fruity blend with green undertones, sitting comfortably on a warm, vanillic base of rosewood and enhanced with fresh vetiver.

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.
