Maison Balzac

La Rose Candle

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

A scented candle made as an ode to the rose in all its forms: wild on a garden hedge, freshly cut in tall glass vases, and heaped mounds of delicate dry petals. A tribute to Jeanine Balzac, grandmother of founder Elise Pioch, who used to wear Joy by Jean Patou and would fill her home with roses from the garden.
  • Olfactive notes: Tea rose, geranium, musk. 
  • 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.
