This edition’s limited series release is our new, hand-poured Figuerolles candle created in an organic, ceramic vessel by Artisan of Provence, Georgie Blin, featuring the most intoxicating Mediterranean green fig fragrance from Grasse, designed to transport you to a seaside summer day in the calanques, any time of the year. The design of the vessel mimics the soft waves of the Mediterranean and features a fig green enamel inside. Each double-sized 500 gram candle is hand-poured using natural, soy wax with two elegant cotton wicks for even burning.

“The fragrance story is inspired by my first summer in Provence at the Mediterranean exploring the clear turquoise waters and fig-dotted calanques with my two young boys. We still often sit under the shade of the most amazing fig tree for lazy rosé-influenced lunches at Mugel.  And a  magical fig tree serves as the fragrant entrance to the wild, mystical calanque of Figuerolles, where I derived the name, as it refers to the fig grove that was once dominant in this calanque. Each time we would pass beneath these two beautiful trees the fragrance during the summer months was just intoxicating… a swirl of green figs and fig leaves, with the ion-infused sea waters. When I smell this fragrance, I can close my eyes and be transported to my happy place here every time.”  – Tarik Koivisto, Founder Luxe Provence
