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.
Along the length of the artists’ workshops, with their large windows opening over the rooftops of Rome, run the majestic gardens of the Villa. A centre for encounters and for meditation, the residents delight in the subtle fragrances of lemon tree leaves, lavender and oregano flowers. The air thrills with the woody aroma of the tall cedars nearby, and the inexpressible fragrance of the ancient stones in the heat of the sun. Box of 125 sticks, 30 minute burn time each.
Shown on an Astier de Villatte ceramic dish and with an incense holder- these are not included- the dish is available in our shop and the incense holder is available in our online shop under a separate listing.
