Astier de Villatte scented candles

SCIENCE tells us that scents can trigger memories – they can bring you back in time, transport you to another place, rekindle old fondnesses. Parisian lifestyle brand, Astier de Villatte, has developed an extensive range of luxury candles based on this very concept and now Samui is lucky enough to stock them. 

Renowned globally for their furniture, dinnerware and ceramic objects, Astier de Villatte introduced a range of scented candles and fragrances in 2008. Since then, they have worked with famous French nose, Françoise Caron to create a stellar collection of scented candles, each with its own special story, each a memory of a special visit and named for a place that inspires olfactory overload. 

For example, take a wild-smelling pilgrimage through the celestial city of Jerusalem, through clouds of oud, cedar wood and nutmeg; inhale the delicious perfumes of Alger, with white campion, privet flowers, wild jasmine, and bitter orange, spiced with just a hint of chilli; or wander along the Rue Saint Honoré in Paris and breathe its delicate green notes and jasmine rose, merging deliciously with the amber and leather atmosphere.

These luxurious candles are housed in glass containers, hand-blown in Tuscany, and the exceptional wax, with its pure braided cotton wick, guarantees a slow burn time (60-70 hours). They are handmade in the same workshop that used to house Napoleon's silversmith (how cool is that?), each exquisite piece one of a kind.

Astier de Villatte, with their extraordinary scents, make some of the best candles in the world today and we are beyond delighted and honoured to be able to offer them to you, our wonderful customers…we truly believe you are going to *love* them! And don't get us started on the range of accessories coming shortly, such as magnificent glass bell jars, to accompany the candles, and hand-typeset diaries. 

Time to start writing that Christmas wish list…!
