Iris Pallida
$53.00
Pale in colour, iris pallida - also known as sweet iris – is a hardy perennial plant from the Iridaceae family. Native to the Dalmatian coast (Croatia), it grows in thick bunches from a rhizome: its sword-shaped leaves spread out like fans while its delicate, purplish inflorescence billows lightly
In the Egyptian antiquity, iris is associated to Horus, the falcon God alternately representing the sun and moon. Highly symbolic, its flower brings the sky and the earth together. Later in history, iris becomes the emblem of French Kings, before white lily. First launched by Catherine de Medici, the fashion of iris perfume is embraced by many in the XIXth Century. Today it is perfumery’s golden asset. Powdery at heart, iris perfume is enveloping, comforting and gently sweet.

How to maintain my candle
  • Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
  • Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
  • Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
  • Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
