"This candle tells a walk in the orange garden in Vallauris. Its solar fragrance combines the delicacy of Neroli flowers with the freshness of citrus to create a soft and comforting atmosphere."
François Demachy, Parfumeur-Créateur Dior
THE ART OF CANDLE BURNING
Because the most beautiful things deserve the greatest care, discover the art of candle burning by La Collection Privée Christian Dior to elevate your fragrance experience.
Place your candle in a stable, upright position to ensure the wax melts evenly. We recommend using an appropriate, heat-resistant base that can withstand hot wax. The La Collection Privée Christian Dior candle stand showcases your candle and protects fragile surfaces such as glass, wood or marble. Before each use, remember to trim the wick of your candle to avoid black smoke. Ideally, the wick should be no longer than 5mm (1/4").
When using for the first time, be sure to let the candle burn until the entire surface liquid. This prevents tunneling and allows the wax to burn evenly. For each use, burn between 2 to 3 hours at a time to fully release the candle's scent and create the ideal fragrant ambiance. Do not leave the candle burning for longer than the recommended time to prevent the ceramic jar from overheating. To avoid blackening of the enamel, make sure the wick is centered in the candle. If it shifts, extinguish the flame and gently straighten thee wick while the wax is still liquid. The base of the ceramic jar should always contain a small amount of wax. Burning the candle until the wax is completely consumed can damage the jar.
Extinguishing Your Candle
Extinguishing your candle must be done with care. We recommend using the La Collection Privée Christian Dior candle snuffer to extinguish the flame and thus reduce the emission of smoke.
To prolong the life of your candle, cover it with a lid between uses. The La Collection Privée Christian Dior lid is the ideal way to preserve your candle's scent and protect the wax from dust. The La Collection Privée Christian Dior ceramic jar has an enamel interior for easy cleaning should it start to blacken. Simply wipe the enamel with a soft cloth to restore it to its original luster.

The Ceramic Jar
