Atelier de Balthus Incense by Astier de Villatte
Balthus’ workshop is a romantic wood-panelled room, with green meadows stretching out beyond the window.
Sunlight streams delicately across a still life of paint brushes, palettes, pots, half-finished canvases, and rags still wet with linseed oil.
In the air is a heady scent of turpentine, mixed with wisps of sweet smoke, along with honey, tobacco and cedar wood wafting in the open window from the forests beyond.
Artistic magic to inspire you at home.
Each stick burns for 30 mins, though the scent lasts for hours after.
Never leave a lit incense unattended.
Discard the ashes once they are completely cool and dispose of them into a safe place.
We always have a good stock of our two favourites, Delhi and Villa Medici along with a selection of Astier’s wonderfully unusual ceramic holders
