A spellbinding candle! First, you are struck by the subtle, very smoky scent of Lapsang Souchong black tea. Before the aromatic and botanical facet of mugwort lends a surprising, unexpected freshness. Last but not least, notes of birch wood add depth and distinctive warm, sweet and leathery undertones.

PS: Birchwood is difficult to use as it is so potent. One drop too many is enough to ruin a creation. But in just the right amount, it does wonders for leathery notes.


What does the black tea note smell like in perfumery? Have you ever heard of Lapsang Souchong? This black tea has intense, astonishingly smoky, floral and woody notes. After harvest, the tea is smoked on a pinewood fire to give it a very distinctive woody and smoky flavor. Invented in Fujian province in south-east China, Lapsang Souchong probably dates from the 18th century. Its name means “little leaves from the original mountain”. It is said that the tea growers – thinking the harvest was ruined and having to dry the tea as quickly as possible to avoid losing it completely – had the idea to smoke it with the wood of a local resinous tree.

What does mugwort add?
The scent of mugwort is described as camphoric, fresh, herbaceous and bitter. This small plant, extracted by distillation, belongs to the aromatic family. Its aromatic accents sometimes recall the more herbal facets of cannabis, and make a wonderful pairing with these notes.

How is birch wood used?
Birch tar oil is obtained by slow destructive distillation of the wood. These molecules are very heavy, have a powerful scent and stabilize the other ingredients. Birch wood adds depth and warm, sweet and leathery facets. It is very useful for creating natural leather notes.

How to use your candle?
When you first use your candle, light it for 1 to 2 hours so the wax melts up to the edge of the glass. Keep your candle away from drafts and trim the wick to 1 cm (1/3 inch) before each use. This will keep it looking good for longer!

Why use colza plant wax?
This natural wax releases no toxic substances when it burns and disperses fragrances marvelously. The wick is also natural and is made from woven cotton to prevent black smoke.

perfect for those chilly spring evenings

while opening the box I smelled a fresh scent which slowly turned into a woody warm scent. It reminds me a bit of the cold spring evenings opening the window and watching the sun slowly go down, just after you get out of the shower. The scent is quite strong when you smell the candle, but when you light the candle I find the strength of the scent is less.

Candle 04: smoked black tea, mugwort, birch

“What I like about Raku is that each piece is unique, with its own cracks, and not necessarily perfect. There are always a few small flaws that give it its full soul. By the way, Raku in Japanese means “happiness in chance”.
