19-69 Nineteen Sixty Nine Chinese Tobacco – Candle

Johan Bergelin: “The timeless masterpiece “Apocalypse now” by Francis Ford Coppola takes place in Vietnam in 1969. Major influences for the scent was the powerful scene featuring Aurore Clement and Martin Sheen smoking opium and the classic line “I love the smell of napalm in the morning”. The title of the movie was actually inspired by a button badge popular with hippies in the 1960s saying ”Nirvana now”.

Chinese Tobacco Fragarnce Journey - A Personal Dining Experience

It is long after midnight and the neon signs light up the dark sky in Terengganu, Malaysia. I am close to the chaos of the city, but it is quiet here in the park. I am surrounded by old gigantic trees, enormous vegetation and tree crowns. I open the doors of the wooden colonial building and enter the traditional Chinese restaurant. The air is filled with wonderful aromas and spices from the kitchen area. A man is sleeping in his chair while resting his head on the table. A group of men is playing cards while smoking under the fluorescent light. Women engage in loud conversations while chopping fresh spices and a small child sleeps in a basket at the end of the room. A TV screen presents the latest music videos from London. The kitchen ́s gasburners fill the air with a burnt scent. East meets west.

Please follow these tips to ensure that many beautiful moments with the scented candle are guaranteed. Do not place the candle outdoors or in draughts, near flammable materials and on heat-sensitive surfaces. Let the wax surface become completely liquid when lighting the candle for the first time, so that the candle burns evenly. Use a candle extinguisher to extinguish the candle, this prevents the wick from sooting and ensures that it remains evenly lit. If the wick is too long, cut it back to approx. 5 mm before each further lighting. The scented candle should not be left unattended and should not burn for more than four hours at a time. To avoid burns, the candle glass should cool down well before touching it.

Chinese Tabacco is the interplay of opposites. East meets West, old meets new. Inspired by legendary films like Apocalypse Now and Indochine. Surrounded by a sweet-spicy freshness detached from life. In the heart of the fragrance, the refreshing pungency of ginger is unleashed, completed by a discreetly citric coriander scent. The base notes reflect a sense of security in the midst of chaos. A dreamy warmth of incense, cedar wood and vetiver meets the playful sweetness of vanilla. Perfection due to different compositions. A harmony because of contrasts.
Burning time approx. 48h. Handmade in Italy. A blend of the finest vegetable waxes in a traditional formula from 1961 is used for the 19-69 candles.
