Palais de Tokyo Ceramic Candle & Lid 220g

DESCRIPTION

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.

This candle uses 100% natural wax, free of paraffin, petrochemicals, and byproducts of GMO's.

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.

DETAILS

  • 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.
