Heliotrope, Lavender, Birch
A Powdery Amber candle evoking an incognito rendezvous, imagined by Vincent Ricord for D'ORSAY.
Based on a love story, the Maison D'ORSAY brings together its two protagonists, Alfred d'Orsay and Marguerite Blessington, both born in September under the sign of Virgo, and places them in the hands of the star Venus. A flamboyant red candle, studded with stars, which despite its name cannot hide from prying eyes.

All D'ORSAY candles are cast in France, in a workshop run by Ciriers who have handed down their unique know-how for four generations.
They are made using traditional, manual techniques preserved by our craftsmen.
The candle's glass is signed with a monogram - interlaced letters - in a modern echo of the company's history.
Use and Care
Our 190gr candle gives you around 60 hours of burning time.
To get the most out of your D'ORSAY candle, here are some tips to follow:
- When using for the first time, burn the candle until the entire surface becomes liquid. This will take about 4 hours of burning. This will prevent the wax from hollowing out and forming a well around the wick.
- Allow the wax to solidify before relighting the candle.
- Prefer the use of a snuffer to avoid smoke.
- Cut the wick regularly with the wick cutter (ideal length 3 to 5 mm) to prevent the candle from smoking or the wick from falling into the wax.
- If the wick becomes misaligned, gently re-centre it while the wax is still melting.
- Do not leave the candle unattended and do not allow it to burn for more than four hours at a time after initial use.
- Keep the candle out of the reach of children and pets.
Located between the Sun and Earth, Venus takes its name from the Greek goddess of love and beauty. Visible sometimes before dawn, sometimes after dusk, when she disappears, two constellations of Virgo seem to merge. It is whispered that these are the spirits of Count Alfred d'Orsay and Marguerite de Blessington, who take advantage of this less luminous but more intimate interlude to kiss each other until the end of time. And now it's your turn to watch for the resting place of this star, to give free rein to your feelings. The moment doesn't matter, as long as it's away from prying eyes.
