The Altar Candle by Byredo is the Altar scented candle as we know it, but in an elegant black silhouette. For Ben Gorham, founder of Byredo, Altar evokes winter memories of family evenings in Stockholm. The notes of clove, wood, vetiver, and carnation create a fragrance experience that brings any room into the cozy, winter mood.

This candle burns for approximately 60 hours.

How to

Always let the scented candle burn until the entire surface is liquid. After blowing out the wick, center it. Before lighting the wick again, cut it with a wick trimmer. By consistently burning the scented candle in this way, the candle will burn slower and it will burn out completely. 

Note: Do not place the candle in a draft or directly on a glass or marble surface. Never leave the candle unattended, and do not move or tilt it. Keep out of the reach from children.
