A scent of flowers blooming in the garden carried by the wind through the opened veranda door — opulent white lily, delicate whisper of jasmine, soft acacia, overlaid with a bit of foliage. Although the scent is supposed to be predominantly wisteria, this is not what I smell in the air when the L’Artisan Sous La Glycine candle is burned. To my nose, it is more of a floral mélange with a hint of grass, leaves, green twigs to lend it freshness. Very long lasting and beautiful.
Another thing that impresses me about L’Artisan candles is the lack of soot and smoke. Once the candle is blown out, there is no smokiness in the air, competing with the lovely scent. Although expensive, I would not hesitate to recommend this candle to those who decide to splurge, because it is definitely worth its price tag.
The large size (175g) is approximately $50, the smaller votives are $16.50. For buying information, see the listing for L’Artisan under Perfume Houses.
