1642 Candle / Large
Maison Balzac is a boutique collection of soy wax candles inspired by Elise Pioch's memories of the South of France. Each candle is hand made using the finest ingredients - soy wax, pure cotton wicks, and essential and aromatic oils. A perfumer has custom-made the different blends to recreate distinctive smells to typify the French Mediterranean region.
We have united with Doctor Lisa Cooper, Sydney based artist, to create this candle as an ode to a 17th Century Vanitas. It awakes the perfumes of Adriaen Van Utrecht's painting from the year 1642, Vanitas - Still Life with Bouquet and Skull, as an inquiry into the olfactory experience of viewing the image through alternative senses.
280g soy wax, 2 cotton wicks, approx 65 hours burn time
