A little history… A clean fragrance, Alteeneh (the Fig Tree in Aramaic) blends woody notes of the fig tree with the fruity sweetness of figs, both highly prized in antiquity. It is said that the fig was one of the first plants cultivated by humans and was a symbol of abundance. The Phoenicians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all considered figs and fig wood to be sacred.

Tips To Choose Candles: view our Candle Buying Guide.
- To maximise your candle’s burn time, make sure it is lit for approximately 2-3 hours for its first burn. This will form a good sized melting pool (molten wax) across the entire surface for maximum scent. It also creates the wax ‘memory’ before extinguishing the flame and prevents tunnelling.
- Thereafter keep the wick trimmed to around 1/4 inch. Trimming the wick at regular intervals, or before each burn, will also help consume the candle evenly. A wick trimmer will do this perfectly, also preventing the excess wick to fall back into the molten wax.
- Instead of blowing out your candle, snuff it to prevent the wick from smouldering and leaving a smoky scent.
- Over time candle fragrances can change and sweat out. Store your candles somewhere not too warm and keep dust off with an elegant candle lid.

Purchased 2 as gifts but kept one for myself and i adore it!
The Alteeneh Fig Candle smells amazing I could I smell it before I even opened the box!
I have wanted one of these for ages, it’s not too heavy with fig. It’s fresh & clean but I see they have also used the wood from the tree giving it the green and woody bites.
I love walking into a room a d that gorgeous scent hits me, it is very uplifting , almost like you have walked into a field of figs on a warm summers Eve, beautiful
I would have to agree that the description of this scent is perfect. I love the scent of fig products and love fruity scents. This scent is neither to heavy nor too sweet. They have balanced both out equally leaving the most divine fragrance which fills the room.
Very good value and the quality you expect from high end candles. Burns well and long. Such a lovely candle.
Sophisticated and magical scent. Will be a regular burn.
This is my second candle purchase, and it is an absolute joy. Scent is pure chic and throw fantastic, burns right through to the last drop of wax and last bit of wick. Packaging is beautiful.
Excellent scent quality and burns for ages.
