This piece was painted during Gauguin’s first extended trip to the island of Tahiti. Gauguin was immediately impressed by the guileless grace and communal ease of Tahitian women, making them the subject of many of his paintings. His best artworks, including Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, were created on that island.
How to get the most out of Iconesse Impressions?
Do not burn the candle for short periods such as half an hour. This isn’t enough for the candle to release its full fragrance and the wax won’t burn evenly, forming a tunnel through the middle of the candle.
Be sure to reposition the wick vertically before the wax solidifies.
Before re-lighting the candle, cut off a quarter of the wick to get the most out of your fragrance and avoid any smoke discharge.
