A NOTE OF HISTORY

Mont-Charles (in Italian Monte-Carlo) is the most famous district of Monaco, so much so that it is sometimes confused with the entire country, or considered - wrongly - as its capital.

Indeed, this part of the Principality was named Monte Carlo on July 1, 1866 in honor of Prince Charles III of Monaco.

The latter launched the development of tourism in the Principality and this neighborhood, authorizing the opening of a casino inaugurated in 1863 on the plans of the architect Godinot.

The success was immediate !

Since then, the cultural and social activity of the principality has been concentrated there. An opera house, inaugurated in 1879, was built in record time (8 months and 16 days) by Charles Garnier.

The hotel and the adjoining Café de Paris welcome an aristocratic and wealthy clientele: princes, princesses, emperors, dukes and great fortunes meet to gamble, dine and dance in an idyllic setting, Belle Époque style, bordered by gardens and an incredible terrace overlooking the Mediterranean.

Artists, heads of state, entrepreneurs and personalities of the Gotha have stayed here and have left their mark on this mythical place, synonymous with luxury and glamour, which has been used several times as a film set.

THE WAX

The vegetable wax and beeswax formulas of our candles have been the object of specific developments that give them an exceptional olfactory rendering and burning quality.

For the development of each of our fragrances, the work is repeated: we must find the right balance between the fragrance concentrate, our ingenious wax blend and the size of the wick.

The manufacture of our candles requires at least four days and most of its manipulations are manual.

Do not worry if a few drops of "perspiration" appear, as it is quite normal that a slight greasy veil is deposited on the walls of the glass during combustion, all these small imperfections are a guarantee of quality, the proof of a 100% natural wax.

RECOMMENDATION FROM MONOÏKOS 1297

To enjoy your candle in the best conditions, leave it to burn the first time until all the wax has become liquid on the surface. 

Do not let your candle burn for more than 4 hours.

Do not leave a burning candle unattended. Make sure the surface on which the candle is placed is flat and heat resistant. Keep your candles out of the reach of children, curtains and pets.

After putting out the candle, cut the wick to a maximum of 0.5 cm. A wick that is too long can cause uneven burning or black smoke. If smoke appears, put out your candle, cut the end of the wick and relight!

If the wick gets out of place, gently re-center it while the wax is still melted.

Keep your candle in a dry and temperate place, between 15 and 25° C.

A NEW LIFE FOR THE PRODUCT

In order to actively contribute to the preservation of the environment, the box and the glass of the Monoïkos 1297 candle are reusable: table glass, whisky glass, pencil jar, small vase, storage for small objects, give free rein to your imagination to embellish your home!

To protect your glass, do not burn your candle to the end, always leave at least 0.5 centimeters of unmelted wax and to clean it, put it in the freezer for a few hours, the wax will then come off very easily.

All you have to do is wash the glass, wipe it and use it in a thousand and one ways !
