Capturing the essence of one of the chicest, most history-drenched streets in Paris is no small feat, especially when it's home to Astier de Villatte's flagship premises. The nose behind this candle has captured the cobblestones, tobacco and that particularly Parisian whiff of French wildflowers in spring as a "powdery cloud" of Old Paris, and calls on amber, leather, jasmine and a few delicate green notes to create its scent. These candles are designed in collaboration with acclaimed perfumer Francoise Caron, and each scent evokes the unique character of a distinctive international destination.
Astier de Villatte
With a penchant for archaeology and nostalgia, and an unspoken mantra of ‘handmade in Paris’, you’d be forgiven for assuming that French lifestyle brand Astier de Villatte is as old as its collaborators. Most famous for the iconic, chalky white-glazed black terracotta ceramic stashed in delicious towers in their tiny boutique on Rue Saint-Honoré, Astier de Villatte now produce borosilicate glassware, titanium cutlery, gilt-edged notebooks and some of the best eau de colognes in the world.
