Known for their ceramics collection, but also working on special projects and collaborations around the world, Benoit Astier de Villatte and Ivan Pericoli, founders of Astier de Villatte, began their scent collection in 2008. In collaboration with Emilie Massad and Françoise Caron, their collection of different scents is inspired by their travels. Their incense is hand made in Japan by the Koh-Shis (masters of aroma) of the island of Awaji. The packaging is so lovely - a most beautiful blue box with gold leaf decorated paper.
The interlaced lanes and cobblestones in this pastel and ochre old city, hide the secret address of the famous Swedish Bitters Elixir "from Maria's herb garden." King Gustav II used to give it to his Viking warriors to render them invincible. An inebriating mixture of wild plants, aloe, clove, lavandin and myrrh escapes from the bottle. Box of 125 sticks, 30 minute burn time each.
Shown on an Astier de Villatte ceramic dish and with an incense holder- these are not included- the dish is available in our shop and the incense holder is available in our online shop under a separate listing.
