At the heart of “Pater Mateos”, a marine breeze touches the rocks licked by sea foam, cooling the hot air after a mountain hike on a bright summer afternoon. Under the oak trees, whiffs of sacred incense float, sweetened by rosewood and musk.

The “Pater Mateos” scent starts its journey along a stream, in the middle of a rocky path. It draws a mystical pilgrimage, going up the acid-green, burnt pink hills through impenetrable scrub, admiring the mountain’s rushing streams, before crossing the two stone bridges towards the wooden sign at the crossroads. The air is filled with the powerful scent of lemons and huge citrons, peppered with bergamot. Since the dawn of time, people have been meeting on this hilltop, where greenery pervades everything, a mix of heather, arbutus and wild flowers. We are in the middle of the Nebbio country, the Lourinion drawn on a map by Greek geographer and astrologer Ptolemy from Alexandria.

In this place, granite mountains dive into the Ligurian Sea, its blue fading to pastel in the faraway bay. At the end of the path, the sacred and the profane emerge: San Michele di Muratu, where the union of musk and rosewood is celebrated, carried by whirls of centuries-old incense. Legend has it that the church was built in one night by angels. Novelist Prosper Mérimée was mesmerized by its singular beauty and wrote about this 12th-century Pisan Romanesque church. On its façade, hard-green serpentine and the pale light of limestone associate in innumerable geometrical patterns and stripes. Absolute green mingles with the bright light of citrusses. And for eternity, an eerie celebration is unfolding on the dark stone of its bas-reliefs and modillions, where naive heroes and chimera appear to be sculpted from the smoke of myrrh.

"The far-off perfume of the maquis would be enough for me to recognize Corsica with my eyes closed."
Napoléon Bonaparte

The Officine's prowess

From the first glow to the last flicker, the scented candle expresses its extraordinary fragrance with remarkable constancy. It was designed so as the scent infuses the wax homogeneously, a feat in itself.

As elegant as it is functional, each candle is protected by a clear glass dome, preserving the perfume’s integrity and intensity and preventing dust from spoiling it. Simply place it on top the candle when you have had enough of the scent or flame.

Carved in white or black marble, displaying unique patterns, our scented candles become sumptuous, unique, long-lasting objects and evoke the splendour of antique vases.
The marble accelerates the cooling of the wax, The marble accelerates the cooling of the wax, allowing the candle to evaporate and consume more slowly and last longer than with another type of holder.

You would have to have a heart of stone not to notice the splendour of this beacon of long-lasting, subtle light and provider of a pleasantly scented atmosphere.

Advice for Use & Care

The candle doesn’t need to be left burning for hours. The best moment to put out the scented candle is once the upper layer of wax has melted: the perfume has now reached its optimal diffusion potential.

The candle lasts for a total of 80 to 100 hours of delicious olfactory experience.

Officine Universelle Buly designed a marble coaster – in white or black – to hold this unique object and protect the surface it is placed upon.

Always make sure the candle is completely put out before leaving the room where it was burning, and keep the candles out of the reach of children and pets.

The best part: once you’ve enjoyed the last whiff of its fragrance and let the flames consume the candle in its entirety, you can turn the terrazzo holder into a vase for your flowers or a pot for your pens.


The candles are made using only plant-based components. Paraffin-free, and without any other mineral compound from the petrochemical industry, their all-natural plant-based wax is made up of rice, soy and copra.
Their wick is pure cotton, ensuring a steady combustion.
The plant-based waxes selected by Buly ensure a safe, toxin-free use and preserve the seven atmospheric fragrances’ integrity and truth, allowing for the full expression of their strengths and nuances during combustion.

The green scent of wet grass, as raw as spring. On the prairie’s belly, clover flowers and hawthorns are shivering, as are the stems turned blue by the early morning. The sun drying the hedges; a spark amid the tall grasses lining the paths; the smoke of green wood fires. The soil comes up to the surface, and under the meadows’ back, runs the round spine of old granite hemmed by mosses, like so many slumbering herds, with dew rippling down their musk.
