MB Scented Candles - 1642
An ode to the florals in Adriaen Van Utrecht's painting entitled 'Vanitas - Still Life With Bouquet and Skull'. A rich duality of violet and blackberry notes intermingle and linger over a deep and earthy bed of cedarwood.
We have united with Doctor Lisa Cooper, Sydney based artist, to create this scented candle as an ode to a 17th Century Vanitas. It acts as an inquiry into the olfactory experience of viewing the image through alternative senses.
Available in Mini and Large sizes.
Olfactive notes: Violet, Blackberry, Cedarwood
Materials: Soy wax blend with cotton wick
Made in Sydney, Australia
Size Mini: 55g approx. 18 hours burn time

COMPOSITION AND CARE
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.
