Astier de Villatte Incense - Grand Chalet

$ 50.00

Description

Known for their ceramics collection, but also working on special projects and collaborations around the world, Benoit Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, founders of Astier de Villatte, began their scent collection in 2008. In collaboration with Emilie Massad and Françoise Caron, their collection of different scents is inspired by their travels. Their incense is hand made in Japan by the Koh-Shis (masters of aroma) of the island of Awaji. The packaging is so lovely - a most beautiful blue box with gold leaf decorated paper. 

 

 Lost in Swiss Alpine pastures, at the heart of a small and peaceful village, stands the imposing and magnificent wooden structure of the Grand Chalet. It was here, in this unique landscape with its healing climate, that the painter Balthus made his home, enchanted by the fragrances of milk, honey and hints of citrus from the ancient lime trees that surrounded his studio. Today, like a wonderful memory, his favourite perfume fills this place once again. Box of 125 sticks, 30 minute burn time each. 

152 × 63 × 19 mm
