Along the length of the artists’ workshops, with their large windows opening over the rooftops of Rome, run the majestic gardens of the Villa. A centre for encounters and for meditation, the residents delight in the subtle fragrances of lemon tree leaves, lavender and oregano flowers. The air thrills with the woody aroma of the tall cedars nearby, and the inexpressible fragrance of the ancient stones in the heat of the sun.

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.
