Regular price £37.00 Sale

Le Refuge d"Ernest Scented Candle


this limited edition Christmas candle encapsulates the winter season, evoking scents of a warm and cozy fire within a cabin deep in the Swiss Alps

Le Refuge d'Ernest pays homage to Marie's great great great grandfather, Ernest Solvay, a Belgian scientist + inventor who developed a passion for nature + exploration

he was quite fond of climbing the Matterhorn + through his early explorations, he realised the dangers of climbing this area due to erratic weather conditions

in 1915, he decided to commission a little refuge for safety in the form of a tiny cabin just below the peak of the Matterhorn - should a climber get stuck in bad weather

imagine, upon lighting the candle, being transported to a cabin in the Alps + taking in the warmth of the fire before preparing to ascent to the top of the Matterhorn

top note: applewood, amber, citron

mid note: clove Leaf, canella bark, white birch

base note: oakmoss, sandalwood, cedarwood

burn time: 60 hours
wax: soy blend
8.5 Oz candle

how to use
light your candle 2 hours the first time, you will get an even burn
to preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 3 hours at a time
before each burn trim the wick to less than 1/4 of an inch, you will avoid any black smoke + residue on the glass
always remove wick debris + keep burning the wick in the middle of the container
if the wick requires centering, gently readjust it to the center when the candle is unlit + the wax is still molten, allow the candle to solidify before relighting
burn on a flat, stable fireproof surface
