"For me, this candle harks back to the plays and characters of Molière and the Commedia dell’ Arte in the 17th century: it exudes powdery notes, like those found in the greasepaint and hair powders used by actors of the time, as well as dry, woody notes suggestive of the boards set up for plays in the street. This segues into a colourful iris, heightened with a hint of moss and dry wood, the aromas surging in a fresh, lively, luminous fragrance." - Elisabeth de Feydeau
The Baroque Collection
This scented candles collection evokes the baroque spirit and the French art of living, imbued with elegance and finesse.
Versailles was an early inspiration for creation and the eighteenth century shone in the history of France as the golden age of refined arts and lifestyles. These candles pay homage to the Age of Enlightenment, the styles Madame de Pompadour and Louis XVI, which made Paris and Versailles the capitals of taste in the eighteenth century and continue to inspire so much talent to this day.
1. Trim the wicks regularly. They can not exceed 1 cm, 1/3 inch.
2. Always burn the candle until the whole surface becomes liquid. This will avoid the candle to hollow and preserve its exceptional quality. (It can take a long time at first burning when the wax is hard)
3. Dark smoke after some hours burning means the wicks are too long. It is time to put out the candle.
4. Five minutes after putting out the candle and before the wax is totally solid, reposition the wicks vertically to their initial place.
5. Regularly clean the inside of the candle to avoid the appearance of soot.
6. Never burn the last centimeter, 1/2 inch of wax to avoid wicks burning against the glass/metal.
