Lockdown Candle Connoisseurs cent.ldn Immortalise Three Footballing Heroes

'Benz' is literally on fire.

January 27th 2023

Cult candle connoisseurs cent.ldn are set to launch a new collection celebrating three of the game’s biggest ballers: Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus, Fenerbahçe’s Michy Batshuayi and Real Madrid’s Balon D’Or winner Karim Benzema.

Originally founded as a lockdown side hustle, cent.ldn has quickly become a go-to for the capital’s alternative home decor lovers.

Ethically and sustainably sourced candles, hand-poured by the cent team come in the shape of race cars, basketballs, boomboxes and, now, strikers of varying quality. But like all of cent.ldn’s creations, the miniature heads of the Three Stripe heroes are 3D rendered before being cast and moulded using 3kg of coconut wax.

The candles are available in a range of aromas, from citrus and eucalyptus to cedar wood and vanilla. Each candle has over 200 hours of burning time, which means you can light ’em up and play ‘Karim Benzema, TOP 50 LEGENDARY Goals’ on Youtube about 1,500 times before he becomes a puddle of wax. Sounds like a deal for us.

Take a closer look at the range and cent.ldn’s candle making process below.
