ASTIER DE VILLATTE PALAIS DE TOKYO SCENTED CANDLE
Overlooking the river Seine, like a mysterious starship navigating the mysterious turbulence of artists’ imaginations, it dominates the view. A troubling fragrance floats between the raw cement walls of its wide, maze-like passageways, where a crowd of zealous and enlightened visitors feverishly gathers: intoxicating wisps of smoky wood, warm skin and metallic vibrations. Contains essences of Cedar Wood, Juniper, Gaïac Wood, Oak Moss and Cashemeran. Perfume designed with Christophe Raynaud. In collaboration with the Palais de Tokyo.
The wax formulation, plant-based with a touch of beeswax, is unique. Free from paraffin or petrochemical derivatives, and therefore free from soot, its exceptionally supple and tender texture is a guarantee of its purity. The wax, worked for a long time, is perfectly miscible with the perfume, releasing the scent both hot and cold. The wick, woven in pure cotton, ensures combustion without traces, lasting and perfect for 60 to 70 hours, depending on the scent. Handcrafted blown glass tumblers from Tuscany have a transparent, slightly grey colour, and light bubbles, giving them a unique, timeless appearance. Labels and packaging are lead-printed on old presses by SAIG, one of the last typographic workshops in the world.
Made in France.
Burning time: 60 to 70 hours.
