Astier de Villatte
Opera Incense Sticks
Astier de Villatte’s incense sticks evoke the distinctive characters of a variety of different destinations around the world – an effective way to imbue spaces with a lingeringly atmospheric scent.
These artisanally-made Opéra incense sticks from Astier de Villatte evoke the splendour of the Palais Garnier – conjuring up reflections of entrechats, pas de deux and ronds de jambs practiced in the Great Hall. They are fragranced with a symphony of beeswax absolute, sandalwood and styrax resin, redolent of sunlit rays gleaming on perfectly burnished parquet wooden floors, the squeak of pointe shoes and the faint tinkle of a piano. A dreamy yet determined fragrance, with a passionate heart.
“We ask people to produce with a good spirit so the pieces look almost alive.”
Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, Astier founders
