Skilful and demanding, each candle is still dripped and crafted by hand, perpetuating a luxury manufacturing style which continues to draw talent from its masterful heritage and its founder and never ceasing to innovate.
Inspired by an in-depth history and fascinating traditions, the candle’s pure and all-natural formulations have transitioned from 100% beeswax to blended wax paste made of vegetable substances, forming a unique blend, miscible with any fragrance, to guarantee the best possible burn and olfactory experience.
