Cultivated in the Grasse region of France since the 16th century, the Centifolia rose is also called the May rose for the month in which it is harvested. It comes by its Latin name because of its profusion of petals, said to number one hundred. This lush feature inspired the candle's container design and package illustration. To fully experience its scent, one must go into a field of roses at dawn in May, just before the harvest. The Centifolia candle may be lit alone or with the Damascena candle from the same collection.
• Centifolia rose
• Height: 3.5"
• Burn time: up to 60 hours
How to use:
• Before lighting your diptyque candle, trim the wick to 1/4-inch length. By shortening the wick, the candle burns more slowly and also avoids unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.
• Allow it to burn for at least two hours for the first time, until the whole top is filled with liquid wax. This will help the candle burn more evenly next time
• After extinguishing the candle, re-center and straighten the wick
