Scented Candle Campagne d'Italie

The “Campagne d’Italie” scented candle diffuses deep notes of bergamot and grapefruit, crowned with cedar, sandalwood and patchouli. An elegant, bewitching blend. From the first spiral of smoke, one is transported to a bucolic landscape in Italy in the last glimpse of the 18th century. The candle is made of plant-based wax and is nested in a small marble holder. The choice of the color is all yours.

Description

Please note that marble is not an exact science and that each of our candle pots is unique. The colour may therefore vary with more or less veining.

Scent

The “Campagne d’Italie” scented candle captures a moment in History: when dreams of glory and conquest took flight beyond the Piedmont and Lombardy countryside, in 1796. Delicate bergamot and grapefruit rinds, still warm from the sun, blend with woody cedar and oak notes.

The head notes of “Campagne d’Italie” are reminiscent of the perfumes celebrated in 18th-century Italy, such as “Aqua Mirabilis”, designed by Italian nuns and known to have inspired the well-known “Eau de Cologne”, with bergamot, citrus fruit and nutmeg as star ingredients. Napoleon Bonaparte discovered the fragrance during his Italian campaign and became enthralled by it, almost to the point of obsession. Historians documented his use of thirty-odd bottles per month – a habit he kept even in exile on the island of Saint Helena. Rumour has it that he would consume a few drops on a piece of sugar before going on the battlefield.

At its heart, behind the intoxicating fresh citrus fruit notes, the fragrance outlines a fascinating landscape with the woody accords of a trio of cedar, oak and sandalwood. A graceful homage to the sublime hills and plains scattered along the banks of the river Pô, from the Piedmont vineyards to the magnificent Lombardy lakes.

Lastly, “Campagne d’Italie” crescendoes to the grand finale of the fireworks with unapologetic hedonism. The scent celebrates the Italian way of life, its bright sensuality with the bewitching sweetness of vanilla, Tonka bean and patchouli.

The Peoples throng around your beauty,
Their hearts aflame, their minds lit at your fire,
Your perfume carried with them always!
A l’Italie, Poèmes barbares, Leconte de Lisle (1862)

NB
A poetic evocation of bucolic hills from another era, “Campagne d’Italie” was chosen by the mythical Hôtel de Crillon, one of the seven 5-star luxury hotels nested in the heart of Paris, on the Place de la Concorde, to be their signature interior fragrance, using scented candles and alabasters.

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 that 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 of 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, 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.

Composition

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.

CAMPAGNE D’ITALIE: AN INVITATION TO A JOURNEY

Hints of leather, bark, earth, pine needles and summer-roasted leaves. The plains, white with sun and crisscrossed by scout honey bees, make for a blinding wait. In the warm shade of the woods, amid the thick silence of the oaks and cedars, the clatter of horses being harnessed, the impatience of restless hoofs, the glint of rifles before the charge.
