Astier de Villatte
Grand Chalet Incense Sticks
Astier de Villatte’s incense sticks evoke the distinctive and alluring character of different destinations around the world – an effective way to imbue spaces with a lingeringly atmospheric scent.
The alpine chalet of the French artist Balthus provides the sensory inspiration for these incense sticks – made using ancestral techniques, their smoke exudes a sweet fragrance of honey, milk, blond wood and vanilla. Deep in the pastures of the Swiss Alps stands an imposing wood structure where an artist works in oils in the fresh afternoon light. The scent is strange and compelling – a fitting tribute to an enigmatic artist.
“We ask people to produce with a good spirit so the pieces look almost alive.”
Benoît Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, Astier founders
