Villa Médicis scented candle by celebrated French ceramic house, Astier de Villatte. Along the length of the artists’ workshops, with their large windows opening over the rooftops of Rome, run the majestic gardens of the Villa. A centre for encounters and for meditation, the residents delight in the subtle fragrances of lemon tree leaves, lavender and oregano flowers. The air thrills with the woody aroma of the tall cedars nearby, and the inexpressible fragrance of the ancient stones in the heat of the sun.

Notes: Lemon-tree leaves, lavender, oregano flowers, and cedar.

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, with a black and white image of a Renaissance sculpture nestled in the garden at the Villa Médicis.
