Ernesto - Candle
"Leather and Tobacco"
In a hotel of Havana, under the fixed sun of the Revolution: the fierce and partisan overtones of leather and tobacco meddle with the paneling's waxen silence.
In the cool dimness, fawn grimaces shimmer along with the smoke of cigars and the barrels of guns.
- Top Notes: Bergamot, grapefruit, rum
- Middle Notes: Clove, labdanum, oak, wood, patchouli

Trim the wick on a regular basis
Ensure the wick is situated in the centre of the wax after every use to guarantee an even burn.
Do not leave candle burning unattended. Do not set in a draft. Keep away from children, curtains and pets.
