LabSolue presents its olfactory celebration of Oud.

From the heart and heat of the Agarwood, breathe in the dark character of Oud, valued as gold. The rarest and most precious raw material of ancient Arab tradition is forged by Italian creativity. Waves of woody, warm and smoked notes are mixed in an hypnotic combination. From the Middle East to Italy, an unusually clean and electrifying interpretation. Made to celebrate life and the richness of olfactory culture.

An Essence formed with the precious resinous wood of Oud, or Agarwood, accompanied by the refined natural resins of Styrax and Benzoin.

Curiosity: Oud or Agarwood is the resinous heartwood that forms in the Aquilaria Tree, an evergreen from Southeast Asia, when it is infected by a particular type of mold. As a defense, the plant produces a dark aromatic resin that thickens and embeds itself in the wood and is traditionally highly prized in Arab culture for its characteristic scent. It is the most expensive wood in the world, due both to the scarcity of this natural resource which takes many years to form, and the laborious harvesting process which requires skill and experience. The dark aromatic part must in fact be separated by hand from the healthy part, the so carved wood chips are used directly as incense or distillated for the extraction of the Essential Oil.

Using the candle: To get the most out of the candle, place it on a flat, heat-resistant surface and let it burn for 2 or 3 hours at a time, until the entire surface melts. This will prevent voids from forming in the wax later. Never leave the candle burning unattended and do not let it burn for more than 4 hours at a time. Do not move the lit candle or when the wax is still liquid. Never place the lit candle in the presence of air currents, nor in direct contact with precious or flammable surfaces. Keep the candle out of the reach of children and pets and away from curtains or other objects.

Taking care of the wick: Regularly cut the wick to the ideal length of 1 cm, to avoid the emission of smoke and the fall of the wick into the wax. After use, when the wax is still melted, if necessary gently recenter the wick to ensure uniform consumption of the wax and that the glass does not overheat at the next ignition. The wick and flame must not touch the container.

Re-using the candle: Do not burn the candle to the end; a candle is finished and should not be relit when at least 5 mm of unmelted wax remains on the bottom. At this point, it begins its second life: the glass container can be cleaned and reused as a water glass, vase for small plants and flowers, brush or pencil holder, holder for smaller candles…

Good to know
LabSolue 16 Oud Scented Candle is a product of Italian craftsmanship, entirely handmade in Italy. For us, the Made in Italy is not just a choice of excellence, but also a commitment to the community.

This candle requires meticulous work to balance perfume concentrate, blend of waxes, shape and size of glass container, diameter and weaving of cotton wick. All to ensure exceptional olfactory qualities and optimal burning.

The container is made of glass in Italy, designed to last over time, reusable and recyclable. The wax is produced and hand-poured in Italy and does not contain artificial dyes, its color is due exclusively to the natural ingredients of the essence. The wick is made of pure, untreated cotton braids, without a metal core.

The packaging, including the external and internal parts, is made entirely of paper, to ensure simple and correct recycling. For the same reason, we have chosen not to protect it with cellophane. The paper we use is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified, to guarantee its origin from responsibly managed forests, and is recyclable.

All this to respect and promote the social and ecological needs of present and future generations.

Light up - and scent - the scene with simple beauty and olfactive style, delighting perfume lovers by candlelight. Always placing nature and the elegance of raw materials at the forefront.

LabSolue Scented Candles are the product of Italian craftsmanship.
