Baobab

modernista raffia maeva

$398

Ylang Ylang - Salt Flower - Orchid

The Maeva scented candle is the most seasonal of the Modernista Raffia collection. Crocheted by a Malgasy women’s cooperative, the raffia that adorns it is hand-dyed with natural pigments. Silver lurex threads disrupt a colorful repetition, thereby adding a touch of sophistication.


Its ylang ylang and sea salt perfume will immediately take you to the sunny beaches of the Mozambique canal.

Its aroma of white flowers and salty notes will conjure up a world of adventure holidays in far-off lands.

A Baobab Collection Candle is one made by hand and with great care. Each candle is hand blown by master glass craftsmen with a unique ancestral knowledge. Every candle is therefore unique. The wax is then hand poured, and can require up to six successive layers and four days of labor.

Always burn your candle until the whole surface becomes liquid. This step may take a long time, especially during the first burning. When the entire top of the wax is liquid, do not burn it longer than one hour. The top layer of liquid wax should never exceed one centimeter in height. Never burn your candle more than the maximum burning time indicated in the candle’s instructions. Never burn it down totally and systematically leave one centimeter at the bottom.
