Scented candles made of a mix of natural wax, pure cotton wick, vase in borosilicate glass.
The lid should never be used to extinguish the candle, but only to keep external agents from the wax.
The wait, the guests are coming; an ephemeral scent, an ethereal moment.
You will open the silent glass doors, your footsteps deadened by the carpets, You will welcome into your corner-less, casket-like space.
The smell of food will be your guide, but your nostrils will not detect the range of notes of that particular ingredient which gives the food its flavour.

Sàl, 100% coarse salt.
