Kraken Soy Candle (driftwood, tobacco, leather)


| /

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.

It smells amazing, and it helps set the mood if you're reading books by H.P. Lovecraft and those inspired by him

Instant addiction

It smells as if you were inside a ship wreck under the sea...except you are a mermaid, breathing it it. I love it, I got the 4oz cause it was my first time purchasing but I'll definitely get a bigger size

Smells like a sexy pirate

If a pirate wore high-end cologne, this is what he would smell like. It's rich, woodsy, and yes, a little sexy. Assertive scent, but not overwhelming. It's one of my favorites.

Exactly what I wanted!

I love everything about this candle. Cozy fall/winter smell. I will be purchasing the large size soon ❤️


Kraken is my absolute favorite scent! I have one of these candles in almost every room of my house. I'm not much of a "floral scent" girl with candles. I like a more masculine smell and this fits the bill. My husband also enjoys the smell.
