The PHAEDON PARIS 300 g “Bauhaus” candle is made of a mixture of several waxes: high-purity mineral, paraffin wax or rapeseed wax. The paraffin wax is created using crude oil. Contrary to popular belief, crude oil is a natural product, yes, it is extracted from the earth in very deep layers and is the result of the decomposition of plants and animals that lived there thousands of years ago. Paraffin wax is an ultra-pure, biodegradable product that offers practically the same advantages as soy wax: Non-toxic, clean combustion, non-miscible (does not mix with water, allowing perfect restitution of the olfactory note. In its so-called “Bauhaus” finish, it is presented in a vase evoking a matt black concrete surface decorated with the oval zoomorphic black tone-on-tone pattern.
