Krampus imagery has made a resurgence and is one of the best-known traditions of folklore from the Central European Alps. Krampus is a fearsome half-goat, half-demon evil companion of good ole St. Nick. This wicked hairy devil figure punishes misbehaving children by beating them with birch branches, or worse, making them disappear. In North America, Santa Claus comes with presents on Christmas Eve, but in Europe the Feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated on December 6th and this is traditionally when children were given gifts. In the German-speaking Alpine region the preceding evening of December 5th is when Krampus comes to town. On Krampusnacht (Krampus night) you might expect to see a procession of Krampuses in elaborate costumes strolling through the streets wearing bells and chains. Heed this warning: if you've been naughty, you may get whipped!
Inspired by a most fascinating character of lore, this fragrance is dedicated to Krampus, the so-called Christmas Devil. The combination of holly berry, fresh cut apples, and Christmas lilies create a joyful and festive blend. Underneath all that aromatic merriment, the crisp note of pine reminds you that something wild lurks outside. This fragrance is the perfect way to celebrate one of Central Europe’s dark holiday traditions.

One of my absolute favorites! You get subtle hints of fruit and pine, it is a scent that people like, but can’t immediately identify and I like that!
I would think Krampus scented candle
would smell somewhat frightfull?
What a pleasent scent this candle has!
I can smell pine trees among crisp apples.
I look forward to Krampus every year. It smells so unique and lovely
I bought it this year just to have. I still might be going through last rounds, I just don't want to miss it when it's gone. It's fruity and woodsy..cool and a little sharp...and I just love it so much. I always come back for more, I'm such a fan.
Oh, how I love the fragrance of this seasonal candle! I'm so glad I got a chance to snatch one up this Christmas. I can definitely smell the sweet resiny pine intermingled with wintery apples, and the throw is so good it touches every corner of my large-ish bedroom. I'm definitely going to light this on Christmas day. Krampus might be a dangerously grumpy mythological figure, but he sure smells amazing! Thank you, Harmony, for the included sample of Ritual. It smells wonderful and I can't wait to light it. Thanks also for your amazing packaging! I love the included cloth bag. I can get a lot of use out of that.
