Astier de Villatte
Atelier de Balthus Incense Sticks
Astier de Villatte incense sticks evoke the distinct character of different destinations around the world – imbuing living spaces with a lingering, distinctive scent.
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.”
Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, Astier founders
