SCENTED NOTES: ASTIER DE VILLATTE CANDLES
Founded in 1996 by Ivan Pericoli and Benoit Astier de Villatte, the Paris-based manufacturer of luxury fragrances and scented candles is currently the only studio to keep the traditional artisanal ceramic production alive and kicking. With love and passion, the two founders produce one-of-a-kind pieces inside the workshop that previously housed Napoleon’s silversmith. In here, the wax is delicately poured inside the brand’s signature white ceramic cups. Developed together with storied French nose Francoise Caron, each Astier de Villatte candle is evocatively scented to capture the essence of places around the world, faraway destinations from Brazil to the Swiss Alps to Sicily. The story and intrigue of each one, of each ingredient unfurls in the candles’ scented whiffs, inebriating the mind and the senses. In the coziness of your home, all you need is a match to enjoy an olfactory world tour.
