OLYMPIC DOUGHNUTS SCENTED CANDLE

///

[Dessert]

A limited-edition scented candle commissioned in collaboration with GYG and the City of Maribyrnong in celebration of the Footscray Hidden Hellenism project.

Olympic Doughnuts was an iconic doughnut truck opened in 1979 by Mr. Nick Tsiligiris outside of Footscray Train Station.

Pumping out perfect doughnuts every morning, Nick, a Greek immigrant who migrated to Australia post World War II, created an institution - before the sun rose, he rose, before the trains arrived, he arrived, and, before breakfast, you would eat dessert.

An Olympic Doughnut experience was simple, regular and significant [our favourite ones though were when his Grandkids would visit].  Your fingers would indicate how many doughnuts you would be taking along on your morning commute. 

Nick's addictive sugar coated doughnuts piped with hot jam from his famous baby blue dolphin shaped contraption amassed a cult following, servicing the Footscray community for its close to 40-year operation. 

The accord pays homage to Nick's doughnuts as cinnamon sugar, vanilla bean and jam donut combine in sweet bready richness. 

Top///     Cinnamon sugar

350 grams of scented soy candle.   45 hour burn time.

 

CANDLE CARE

Failure to follow instructions could result in fire, hazard or injury.  Keep candle and flame away from children and animals.  Never leave a lit candle unattended.  Remove all packaging before lighting candle.  Do not burn candle for longer than 4 hour intervals.  Always burn candle on a level, stable fire/heat resistant surface.  Keep away from things that catch fire.  Keep away from drafty areas.



INSTRUCTIONS

Keep the wick trimmed to 6mm to ensure even burning and ensure your first burn is long enough to create an even pool of wax along to surface of the candle - we recommend 4 hours.  This will avoid the candle from tunneling.  Ensure candle is free of any foreign or flammable materials including matches and wick trimmings before burning.  Keep wax pool free of debris.  Do not touch or move candle when it is burning/hot.  Store candle in a cool dry place below 25 degrees celsius and keep away from direct sunlight.  Stop burning when 2cm of wax remains at the bottom of the jar.  This will prevent possible heat damage to the counter/surface or container itself.  Please note that the glass candle container will get hot on the bottom as the flame nears the base of the jar and most of the wax has been consumed.
