Dark + Stormy Soy Candle

(10 customer reviews)


“This is my favourite out of the Lumen + Luxe range, hands down. It takes pride of place in my bedroom and honestly is one of the sexiest smells ever. It’s deep, woody, earthy, masculine and is never overpowering. Love love love!” -Emma

A rich wintery fragrance, our Dark + Stormy fuses notes of rum, hay, and cinnamon, brightened with white citrus and ginger, and layered with sandalwood, birch, and tobacco.

Top: white citrus and ginger
Middle: rum, hay, and cinnamon
Base: sandalwood, birch, and tobacco

    Love using this masculine, warm and wintery scent as part of my evening routine, and the gorgeous black vessel ????

  2. Emma

    This is my favourite out of the Lumen + Luxe range, hands down. It takes pride of place in my bedroom and honestly is one of the sexiest smells ever. It’s deep, woody, earthy, masculine and is never overpowering. Love love love!

  3. Jefferson

    Smells beautiful and for lack of a better term, quite masculine. Perfect winter scent. I also love The Cabin which I got as an add-on with this purchase. My only issue is that these burn down fast. Guess I’ll be buying replacements sooner than expected. 🙂

  4. Pippa

    The top notes of white citrus and ginger are obvious when you put your nose to the unlit candle, but when it’s burning the tobacco scent really comes through. It’s an interesting fragrance and great for winter nights.

  5. Chantelle

    Absolutely divine. I knew I would love this candle before smelling it just from the description. It is the perfect mix of woody, masculine, warm and the slightest hint of spice. I find the tobacco to be a comforting scent but not one that overpowers the other scents. This is a perfect winter smell, curled up under a blanket with a good book and the wood wick crackling in the background. I find that these candles burn evenly and are long lasting if following the burn instructions and the jars are simple and beautiful at the same time! Will definitely buy again and again!

  6. Jay Ahrens

    Ok I lit this candle as my first Lumen and Lux candle on a wet windy evening have to say i am now hooked on the scents this one is so complex but it makes you go back and smell again and again I have since purchased the Persian Oud Candle and that’s amazing.

  7. Kerri McKenna

    I love earthy masculine scents and this candle delivers. So subtle yet so sexy!

  8. Andrea Rose

    Dark & Stormy has become one of my faves thanks to it’s divine scent which is a wonderfully woody, earthy & smoky one. The wick crackles nicely too which reminds me of open fires….with a little imagination of course! Perfect not only for cold wintery nights in Melbourne but I find myself burning it even when it’s not. Thanks Marina for this candle, I love it!

  9. Kylie McCarthy

    I ordered Dark & Stormy, The Cabin and Teak, Moss & Sandalwood melts and they all smell divine. Very happy with the quality. Thanks Marina.

  10. Anika

    I ordered this one for my partner as he loves earthy, woody scents and he can’t stop burning it! I love it too, and the wood makes the most beautiful crackling sound that you can hear all the way across the room! Definitely going to purchase again.
