Candle 01 : A bouquet of aromatics
Lively basil and the green notes of fig leaves crumpled between your fingers awaken the sweetness of Brazilian orange. Camphoric blue eucalyptus then wafts over mint leaves. The warm facets of cloves and vanilla mingle to create an ever-so gentle effect.
What does basil smell like ?
A Mediterranean village warmed by the sun’s rays, where a pasta dish made with green pesto awaits. We all picture something similar to this idyllic image whenever we hear the name of this aromatic herb : basil. It has a fresh, green, herbal, spicy, aniseed aroma and is often used in colognes and citrus notes. Basil essential oil is produced in the south of France or in Madagascar by distilling the leaves and stems. Basil is a mystical plant ! In India, every Vishnuite household has a jar of basil in its window to bring luck, and in some regions of Africa, it is used to ward off bad luck.
How to use your candle ?
When you first use your candle, light it for 1 to 2 hours so the wax melts up to the edge of the glass. Keep your candle away from drafts and trim the wick to 1 cm (1/3 inch) before each use. This will keep it looking good for longer !
