Opéra. The splendour of the Palais Garnier. Ballet movements in the Great Hall: entrechats, pas de deux, ronds de jambes upon sumptuous parquet floors, polished with beeswax. Richly upholstered foyers reach to the very roof of the Opera, where thick streams of honey are collected from hives which spread the giddying notes of beeswax absolute, made sublime by minute additions of sandlewood and styrax resin.

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.
