Atelier de Balthus Scented Candle with Lid by Astier de Villatte
In the painter’s studio, all covered in wood panelling, time seems suspended.
Through the big bay window overlooking green altitude meadows, the Northern light pours her powdery rays all over brushes, palettes, tubes, paint pots, sketched canvasses and rags still wet with linseed oil.
The air is fragrant with the heady smell of turpentine mixed with lovely wisps of smoke, honey, woods, tobacco and cedar wood.
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.

Their candles, which were created around meaningful places around the world, from the artist Balthus’ Grand Chalet to Honolulu are totally transporting.
