The L'Objet Thé Russe No.75 Candle is warm and clean, reminiscent of a day spent with a book by a crackling fireplace in St. Petersburg.
This hand-poured paraffin wax, single wick candle is created from natural oils and essences, and comes in a beautiful Limoges Porcelain container with a brass lid.
With a strong head of lemon zest and coriander seeds, this candle also includes notes of hay oil, beeswax, milk lactones, and a base of patchouli fraction, amber, and Russian leather.
Scent Description: It was cold in Paris that October day in 1975 when Philippe received a hand-written note from Mischa Barinov of St. Petersburg; an invitation to view a rare, privately held collection of antiquities. He departed by train that very evening. Two days later, he arrived in the study of a mansion on the Griboyedov Canal. Settling into a Louis XIV bergère beside the fireplace, he was enveloped by the blended scents of ancient, leather-bound books, the crackling fire, and the steam of black tea rising from a spectacular samovar. Mischa appeared in the doorway. “Thank you for coming. I think you will find it well worth your travels. But first, tea...” Then, in regard to Philippe’s obvious obsession with the samovar, “Tobrak bronze, circa 1775.”
Care: All L’OBJET collections are made with exceptional materials, and with proper use and care, will last for generations. Dust with a soft cloth. After candle has burned completely through, place container under hot water to dissolve remaining wax. The vessel can then serve as a decorative box. Do not leave candle burning unattended.
