The fig tree, of the Moraceae family, grows on the Mediterranean basin where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. In France, figs were first harvested under Louis XIV. 

La Quintinie, the King’s gardener, planted over seven hundred fig trees of different varieties in the Versailles gardens, to satisfy His Highness’ taste buds. Fig leaves exhale an exquisite and beneficent vapour.

Weight: 185g / 6.5 oz
Burning time: 45 to 50 hours

How to maintain your candle:

  • Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
  • Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
  • Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
  • Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
