Astier de Villatte
Atelier de Balthus Ceramic Scented Candle 300g
Astier de Villatte’s Atelier de Balthus scented candle captures the powdery, woody, resinous air of the painter's studio.
The painter’s workshop is seen in a snapshot frame of the mind’s eye – wood-panelled, with green meadows stretching out beyond a huge bay window. Pale northern 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, which comingles with wisps of sweet smoke, along with honey, woods, tobacco and cedar wood from the forests beyond.
“We ask people to produce with a good spirit so the pieces look almost alive.”

HOW TO USE
Trim the wick each time before lighting for a longer, cleaner burn. 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. This will allow for an even burn in future.
