Alcatraz. Guardian of San Francisco Bay, pelican refuge, the isle of Al Capone and of American Indians who still meet there for the 'Sunrise Gathering' ceremony. Above the fortress steeped in history still floats the divine odour of Indian blond tobacco, yerba maté with its notes of dried hay, smoked lignum vitae and cinnamon spiced with black pepper.

Astier de Villatte candles are made in a workshop in the south of France, by a master candle-maker who has perfected the art of wax preparation. The process is highly artisanal and requires a systematic quest for the finest ingredients: wax, perfume, glass and savoir-faire.
The wax used to make Astier de Villatte candles is unique, 100% natural and free of paraffin, petrochemical byproducts and GMO’s. It's unusually supple and soft texture is a mark of purity.
The ingredients used to make the scents consist of the finest possible essential oils, absolutes and other raw materials. Astier de Villatte is the only manufacturer of scented products to print the full list of ingredients on its packaging.
Astier de Villatte candles contain the highest possible concentration of perfume for scented candles. Most of the different candles in the collection have a perfume concentration of 12%.
The wick is adapted to the type of scent. Made in pure cotton, it ensures the candle will burn without residue and last perfectly for 60 to 70 hours depending on the scent.
The glass pots are blown in Tuscany and are speckled with tiny air bubbles. Simple, chic and great to collect. Each one is unique.
