Maison Balzac

1642 Candle

Maison Balzac is a collection of perfumed candles and delicate objects created in Sydney, Australia.

In collaboration with Doctor Lisa Cooper, Sydney based artist, the 1642 candle was created as an ode to a 17th Century Vanitas. With olfactive notes of violet, blackberry, and cedarwood. 

  • Olfactive notes: Violet, blackberry, cedarwood. 
  • Size: 300g approx. 70 hours burn time.
  • Composition: Soy wax blend with cotton wick. 

Care Instructions: 

  • The first burn is the most important as it sets the burn memory. When lighting for the first time, ensure it is alight long enough for an even wax pool to develop to the edge of the vessel.
  • To ensure an even burn and the best scent throw experience, be sure to trim the wick to 5mm before each use. 
  • After extinguishing the flame, make sure the wick stands upright in the centre of the vessel. 
  • Never burn a candle for longer than 2 hours, or when the wax level reaches less than 2cm from the vessel base. 
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep away from draughts, children, pets, or flammable objects like curtains. 
  • Always ensure candles are placed on a non-flammable base while burning.
