Hephaestus - Greek Deity of the Forge and Craftsmen


Hephaestus is the Olympian god of fire, smiths, craftsmen, artists, metalworking, stonemasonry, and sculpture. We focused on the aspects related to his dealings with the forge and craftsmen for this candle, imparting it with notes of leather, smoke, spiced ginger, wood, and earth. Touches of black tea and pipe tobacco linger in the background, balancing this masculine fragrance out so it is not too overwhelming. 


Known as the god of the forge, Hephaestus was responsible for crafting weapons, armor, and other prized possessions for the gods and goddesses of Olympus. He crafted the winged helmet and sandals for Hermes, as well as the armor worn by Achilles. He is often depicted with a physical disability and depending on the lore being referenced, Hephaestus was either born with his physical deformities or acquired them after intervening between a quarrel involving his father Zeus and his mother Hera. Hepheastus was said to have created a winged charriot to aid in his mobility. He was married to Aphrodite, though his wife was not loyal and sought other lovers, such as Ares.


This deity is a beneficial one to look towards if you are an artisan. Some mechanics have even given a little homage to him when they keep losing their 10mm sockets to see if it returns to them.
