Buenos Aires Ceramic Candle 220g

DESCRIPTION

Buenos Aires overflows with vitality and elegance. On a summer night, in an old, lively quarter of the city, sip a drink on the terrace of a milonga, as the figures of tango dancers sway in the darkness. And let yourself be intoxicated by the languorous rhythm of the music and the exquisite scent of white flowers carried on the warm breeze.

Scent family - Floral.

Notes: Berries of rose, mandarin, ylang ylang, rose and magnolia.

Size: 220g, burntime 55 - 60 hours.

The candle fragrances were developed by Astier de Villatte designers and perfumer Françoise Caron who worked with a team at Takasago.

The candles are made of biodegradable vegetable wax (a mix of soy, beeswax, and plant extracts) and have cotton wicks.

This candle is housed in a classic Astier de Villatte ceramic vessel, handmade in Paris, adorned with a colourful dancing duo scene.

DETAILS

  • Care instructions: ensure the entire wax surface is molten each burn before extinguishing the flame. Trimming the wick after each burn prevents soot forming on the glass.
  • The labels and packaging for the candles are printed by Monsieur Huin, the last typesetter in France.

ABOUT the MAKER

Astier de Villatte

Astier de Villatte ceramics are handmade in their Parisian workshops. Each piece is unique, as a result of manual work and the natural method of drying. The white enamel allows an irregular glimpse of the brown clay underneath.

The production of ceramic objects is a long and delicate process. Each piece is entirely made by one craftsperson. In fact, you can find engraved on each piece the initials of Astier de Villatte and of the craftsperson who made it.
