CLEOPATRA - FOR WOMEN scented candle 320g
Uncompromising, brilliantly intelligent, knowing very well how to get exactly what she wants. Cleopatra, the last queen of the Hellenistic Egypt, also known as the New Goddess, has always fascinated us. She remains one of the most frequently depicted rulers in both popular culture and art. Most of these depictions, however, revolve around the queen’s beauty, her erotic magnetism and turbulent romances with Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony.
The collection named FOR WOMEN narrates the story of Cleopatra from a different perspective, presenting a woman equally beautiful and strong, independent, incredibly witty and well-educated (after all, she spoke a dozen or so languages and was far more advanced at maths, philosophy or astronomy than most men around her). That’s why the intense, powerful fragrance of tobacco overpowering sweet, powdery notes is the first scent we can feel upon lighting up the candle.
Then, there’s a hypnotic aroma of violet, a flower symbolising desire and mystery, but also a way of thinking that’s free from social limitations. Later on, the base note is revealed; the scent of skin pulsating with warmth, powerfully sensual tonka bean and benzoin.
Burning a candle
To ensure that your candles last as long as possible, we recommend that you read the following tips.
Each candle burning session should not last shorter than until the wax is melted all the way across the surface. To prevent black flames, trim the wick to about 0.5 cm before the next time you lit a candle. Remove the cut portion from the candle. On single occasion, do not burn the candle for longer than 4 hours. Avoid moving or tilting a burning candle.
If the wick is leaning slightly, gently straighten it before the wax hardens again. It is recommended to wait until the wax hardens completely before lighting a candle up again. It's best to use a candle extinguisher or a candle snuffer hat to extinguish a candle. It’s also important not to let the candle burn all the way down. We recommend that you discontinue burning the candle when there remains less than 1 centimeter of unmelted wax.
Do not store the candle in damp places or in places exposed to direct sunlight. If the candle requires cleaning, it can be gently washed in cold water and left to dry out before next use. It’s worth noticing that wax colour can differ depending on the fragrance, which is a natural phenomenon resulting from oil composition.
The candle should always be placed in a safe, temperature-resistant place. It’s important to place the candle away from flammable materials such as furniture and curtains and sources of heat, such as radiators and TVs. Keep burning candles away from draughts.
If there are a few candles burning, keep a minimum distance of 20 centimetres between them. It’s also important not to leave the burning candle unattended. Do not move the burning candle to avoid the risk of spilling hot wax.
Remember that the flame should not reach glass walls as it may cause damage and cracking. If you’re hypersensitive to fragrances, exercise necessary caution while burning the candle.
It’s also important to keep candles away from children and pets to avoid accidental access to flame and prevent potential dangers.
