ST PAUL - figue rouge
FIRST SHIPPING DATE: 30TH SEPTEMBER 2021
The ancient town of St Paul de Vence sits perched on a hill above the Cote d’Azur, a ‘must visit’ destination for all those enjoying the Riviera - summer or winter - if not for lunch or dinner at ‘La Colombe D’Or, then for the famous art installations, shopping, browsing and taking in the scenery. At the foot of the battlements that surround St Paul, are gardens filled with vegetation and fig trees. During the summer months, the scent of the ripening figs filters up on the gentle breeze and fills the cobbled streets and village square. A more magical destination can hardly be found...

PRODUCT ADVICE & INFORMATION: Nicky Summer Bougie was established in Paris and London back in the year 2000 and the candles were originally sold via our brochure and from our interiors showrooms in South Kensington and Knightsbridge. The scented candles are made from 100% natural wax (a blend of soy and bee) and are produced cruelty-free by artisans in either Paris or London (see product description). Each candle comes authenticated and is numbered between 1 and 20 (size of each small batch), dated and personally signed by the designer Nicky Summer. Each candle is encased in one of a variety of coloured glasses; they are presented in a quality, biodegradable box (known as a ‘shoulder box’) with tamper-proof biodegradable cellophane wrapping, tied with decorative twine and a colour-coded hand-stamped wax seal. The candles each come with a lid and a box of white-tipped matches. The candles weigh either 200 or 220 grams each; see individual specification for details (listed above). Note that candles have slightly different burning times depending on the ingredients contained within, not the weight, and some burn more slowly than others. The candles are wrapped as a gift, for yourself or another. The candles are available online from www.nickysummer.com, selected luxury hotels, interior designers and boutiques. Please do not allow the candle to become wet and keep well out of reach of children and animals. Remove the decorative wax seal once the candle has reached a low level to avoid drips and/or smoking. Always ensure the candle has been extinguished fully after burning, never move when lit and/or hot, and do trim the wick regularly to ensure the wax sets evenly. Use the lid to avoid smoke escaping after the candle has been extinguished. Nicky Summer candles are 100% natural, therefore safe to use around pets.
RETURNS POLICY: Candles may be returned to us at any time up to one month from date of purchase, if undamaged and unlit, with proof of receipt.
