Experience the senses of the Viking Age with the new JORVIK candle

The centre’s retail team has teamed up with the York-based olfactory artist to offer a way to bring the scent into your own home – the Jorvik Feast candle from Room Spell.

JORVIK is known for offering visitors from all over the world the sights, sounds and smells of Viking Age York, but this is the first scent of a Viking festival that people can take home with them. The center said that in addition to the swords, axes, jewelry and freshly minted coins in the gift shop, it will also be a popular souvenir for Nordic lovers.

The candle was created by York-based Dan Oliver Gott, who has made a range of unusual scented candles with a distinctly edgy theme.

The Viking Center will be the only place in town where you can purchase the Jorvik Feast candle, while the Magic and Mystery Shop at Monk Bar will have three magical candles on offer: The Hex, York 1349 and Deadly Sins.

Dan said: “If you think of Willy Wonka’s Everstanding Gobstoppers, which could give you the flavor of an entire meal in a single confection, I did the same with a candle – an aroma that changes as the candle burns to create a… A feast full of scents ranging from smoked meats to fresh bread to oatmeal and orchard fruits.

“No Viking festival is complete without lots of beer, so a hoppy scent can be felt everywhere.”

The Jorvik Feast candles come in a special tin and have a burn time of around 42 hours. Price is £18.50. The JORVIK Viking Center gift shop is open to everyone during normal JORVIK opening hours.

Paul Ruxton, JORVIK retail buyer, said: “The recreated smells of Viking-age York have been part of JORVIK’s history since it opened in 1984, including a heady mix of pleasant and unpleasant aromas, from apples and damp forest to rotting meat and cesspool.” .

“This candle definitely captures the delicious scents of a feast – you can almost imagine this being the scent that greets fallen warriors as they are welcomed into Valhalla.”

Earlier this year, the JORVIK Viking Center podcast was nominated for two prestigious awards.

The podcast was the idea of ​​Miranda Schmeiderer, one of JORVIK’s duty managers. The pilot episode was created in November 2020. The first series was created to launch during That JORVIK Viking Thing, the online Viking festival created to entertain people while locked in their homes during the pandemic.

The show is co-hosted by Miranda with Lucas Norton, who researches many of the topics behind the podcasts.
