Barely Disfigured Joya "Bonjour Tristesse" Candle
The beauty of an Éluard poem comes to life. Bonjour Tristesse (“Hello Sadness”) is winding down with a cocktail after a well-spent, dry-hot full day at the beach. It is effortless Southern France, an ideal complement to our first fragrant expression together.
The second signature scent from our collaboration with Barely Disfigured (the acclaimed Carroll Gardens cocktail bar) evokes the seductive spirit of their establishment.
Now presenting two companion pieces inspired by the poem, À peine défigurée, which begins with the lines "Adieu tristesse / Bonjour tristesse..."
Top Notes: chamomile, clove leaf, orange zest + turpenes
Heart: raspberry, heliotrope petals, violet + orange flower water
Drydown: Texas Cedarwood, oak, bourbon vanilla, patchouli, guaiacwood, sandalwood, tobacco + toffee
Net Weight: 184 g / 6.5 oz.
Approximate Burn Time: 50 hours
Ingredients: soy wax blend, fine fragrance, essential oil, cotton wick.
- Trim wicks to 1/4" before lighting
– Burn candle for no less than 1 hour and no more than 3 hours at a time. This prevents wax tunneling
– Discontinue use when 1/2" of wax remain
Once your candle is finished and the vessel is ready to be repurposed, we recommend using a dry tissue, towel or rag by hand to wipe off any soot (carbon) that may have accumulated on the inside of the container. You should discard this tissue or rag, so using a dish brush is not advisable. After this process—once the soot has been removed—a hand-wash in soapy water to remove last elements of excess should do the trick. For any stubborn pieces of wax remaining, leaving the container in a freezer overnight usually encourages the wax to shrink and ultimately pop out. Metal wick stabilizers should also pop out without issue.
