Fragrance notes: driftwood, tobacco, leather


The Kraken is a legendary Scandinavian sea monster frequently described as a colossal squid that dates back to 13th century Icelandic sagas. Kraken lore says the beast is larger than several ships combined causing unlucky sailors to mistake its body for an island, a blunder which ultimately leads to their demise. Marine monsters are a common folklore theme and exist in various forms such as the Leviathan in the Bible and Jörmungandr in Norse mythology. They appear in classic literature such as Homer’s Odyssey, Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and H. P. Lovecraft's The Call of Cthulhu. The Kraken has been seen more recently as a sigil for House Greyjoy in Game of Thrones and in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Sea monsters represent fear of the unknown, a vulnerability caused by the inability to see what lurks beneath the surface, and the prospect of failing to fight off an attack in the hostile, extreme environment that is the open sea.

This fragrance is inspired by the Kraken and all legendary creatures who lurk within the depths waiting to strike fear into the hearts of ocean explorers. Reminiscent of pirates, treasure maps, and sea monsters, this fragrance captures the smells of a high seas adventure. The woody scent of driftwood and sea salt brings to life a wooden-hulled frigate sailing over the open ocean. Notes of leather and tobacco represent the ship’s crew of hardened and seasoned seafarers. Infused with natural essential oils, this fragrance is as bold and robust as the ship and brave crew who set sail into the ocean blue.

one of my favorites

i'm always a fan of driftwood, and this combination really elevates it into something more complex and wonderful. feels old and nostalgic and grounding.

Old library vibes

My fav so far, this scent is perfect as described. The tobacco & leather shine here but not in an overwhelming way. I have to point out the beautiful packaging too! The wax seal is such a perfect touch! I'm definitely ordering the 16 oz soon.

Perfect for Atmosphere

I'm an avid gamer and reading. I love candles that set the mood when I do both. The ocean, leather, and tobacco instantly transport you to a ship, or an eerie seaside port. I bought this in a 4oz and when that's done will be getting the biggest jar I can.

Release the Kraken!

Every time I find a candle with hints of leather, I can never replace it when its gone. Now Kraken is my go-to comfort candle and I have a new love of sea creatures!

For once, my husband and I agree on a candle!

Kraken is a great smelling candle. I bought the 9oz and it does not disappoint. The tobacco and leather are the strongest scents to me. This is a nice candle to burn at night when you are reading and relaxing. It's very rare that my husband and I like the same candles, but Kraken has been a hit with both of us. Will definitely purchase again!
