Hand Blown Figue d'ete Candle
A crisp, green fig blossoms from the candle. Inspired by a warm summer day on the grounds of the Bastide, a young girl walks alongside her father. The sweetness of the green fig she eats along the path leaves a lingering scent on her skin and engraves in her senses a memory of happiness and comfort. This simple summer stroll begins the most beautiful days of her life.
