Grand Paradis Candle 260g

DESCRIPTION

A hike in the wilderness, through mountain trails, following chamois and ibexes as they run and play higher up the rocky slopes. The winding path moves uphill through fragrant altitude pastures, from where the eye embraces the glacier, and then the snowy, staggering and magnificent peaks of the Grand Paradis. A deliciously refreshing, invigorating breath of wind blows sweet scents: the green and woody smell of pines and larches mixes with whiffs of absinth, artemisia, sage and mint from the surrounding high grass and gentian.

Scent family - Aromatic.

Notes: Absinth, artemisia, sage and mint.

Size: 260g, burntime 60 - 70 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.

The glass is hand blown in Tuscany, making each one completely unique.

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.
