Scented Candle Nuit Blanche
6.6 oz - 50 hours
In the remote region of Mysore, smoking sandalwood breathes out its woody and milky soul to join the final oily, almondy breath of a split coconut served at nightfall. In the middle of the night, a murmur in the forest reawakens my instincts and calls to me; I chase after it through the sandalwood forest. The coolness of the darkness and the leaves on the trees whip our faces, brush against our bodies and carry us all the way to expanses of tuberose. Stretched along the white horizon, the sensual and solar scents glisten and exalt our bodies in carnal darkness.

The theme of this candle is inspired by a night spent in the white tuberose fields in the region of Mysore. It connotes eternal love: the carnal flight of two lovers through a sandalwood forest and fields of tuberose. The tuberose (Polianthes tuberosa) was introduced to India in the 16th century and gave birth to new flower species. Its narcotic perfume is the object of numerous praises. The Mysore sandalwood (Santalum album) is a sacred wood burned during religious Hindu processions, favorable for meditation, for various millennia. The fusion of these fragrances produces an exquisite and sensual perfume.
For the realization of these scented candles, we work with suppliers and artisans passionate about their trade. The artisan perfumer, master chandler, glassmaker, designer, and glass designer, are all based in France. The perfumes that we have imagined for HōV are made by an artisan perfumer with over 40 years of experience. He creates each olfactive story to measure. Our perfumes are produced in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, located in the south of France. Our chandler, who is also a perfumer, finalizes the mineral wax composition, sometimes adding vegetal wax in accordance with the perfume and the container, to make the candle as potent and diffusive as possible.
To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your HōV candle for more than 3 hours straight during the first third of the candle and 1 to 2 hours during the remaining. Your candle will consume in a regular manner right to the bottom of the glass if the wick is kept upright and centered. Trim the wick before each usage (3-4 mm) to keep it like new.
