Villa Medicis Candle by 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.
100% natural wax, free of paraffin.
Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 3 consecutive hours.
Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before relighting.
Keep the wick trimmed to 57 mm long at all times, to avoid any black smoke.
Gently repositionthe wick while the wax is still molten.
Once only 1 cm of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
Never burn a candle all the way through the bottom.
