Grand Chalet Candle by Astier de Villatte
Lost in Swiss Alpine pastures, at the heart of a small and peaceful village, stands the imposing and magnificent wooden structure of the Grand Chalet. It was here, in this unique landscape with its healing climate, that the painter Balthus made his home, enchanted by the fragrances of milk, honey and hints of citrus from the ancient lime trees that surrounded his studio. Today, like a wonderful memory, his favourite perfume fills this place once again.
100% natural wax, free of paraffin
Burn time: Approximately 60 hours
Glass container is hand-blown in Tuscany, Italy
On the first time of lighting allow the candle to burn for two to three hours until the wax has pooled right to the edge, allow to solidify again before relighting.
Trim the wick each time before lighting for a longer, cleaner burn. This will allow for an even burn in future. Never burn a candle all the way through the bottom and never leave a lit candle unattended.
