Les Insectes is the scent of earth and moss and the strange beauty of insects endlessly weaving through the rhythms of nature.

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE SCENT

A FRAGRANCE LIKE NO OTHER

A mesmerising melange of soil, crushed tomato leaves as well as the strange smell of black ants. It epitomises the beauty of insects endlessly weaving through the rhythm of nature.

LE JARDIN

Les Insectes is the first scent in our theme of 2024, Le Jardin, which pays homage to nature in all its glory. There are insects, wild roses, swallows and irises, can you hear the gentle buzz of bees gathering nectar?

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.

DID YOU KNOW?

Around 20% of people can detect the odour of a black ant. The lucky ones describe it as "earthy and metallic".
This unusual fact was the original inspiration behind our unique Les Insectes perfume.
