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
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.
