Palais de Tokyo scented candle by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. Overlooking the river Seine, like a mysterious starship navigating the mysterious turbulence of artists’ imaginations, it dominates the view. A troubling fragrance floats between the raw cement walls of its wide, maze-like passageways, where a crowd of zealous and enlightened visitors feverishly gathers: intoxicating wisps of smoky wood, warm skin and metallic vibrations. Made in collaboration with the Palais de Tokyo.
Scent family - Woody.
Notes: Damp wood, incense, freshly laundered linen, vetiver, and clove.
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 ceramic vessel, adorned with a beautiful vine motif in black, and comes complete with matching ceramic lid unique to the Palais de Tokyo scent.
