Prunus Domestica Syrica

A fruit from the prunus domestica family, the Mirabelle is, by definition, “beautiful to look at,” from the Italian mira bella.

Its perfume is like its texture: sugary yet delicate. 

More

Known since the Antiquity as prunus domestica syriaca, the plum tree was cultivated in Asia Minor, throughout Persia and Eastern Europe. Roman manuscripts trace the mirabelle’s origin back to Syria: at times when the Romans ruled over the region, different varieties of plums including mirabelles were introduced in Rome.

Dark yellow in color, this small rounded plum is often covered in a thin – and edible - wax coating called pruine (wax bloom).

Burn time: 45 to 50 hours.

Directions

- Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
- Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquefies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
- Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
