Carrière Frères

Scented Candles, from Carrière Frères

 

There is something unique about scents, the way they can create a certain feeling or mood from lovely memories, people that we hold dear or homes and places we have visited. We are so fond of these amazing scented candles from Carrière Frères, which came to our attention on a trip to Paris. The white clean look with the botanical label is such a simple yet delicate design. Carrière Frères was established in France, 1884 by the Carrière brothers. They were inspired by the wax craftsmanship from their ancestors and they are passionate about producing a new generation of long-burning candles. Their candles have been a great success from the beginning where they won gold at the 1889 Universal Exposition and became the official wax supplier to the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur in Paris. Carrière Frères candles feature a unique wax formula that allows for a clean and even burn. The candles are made at the Carrière Frères factory in Normandy France. Each candle is still hand poured into the glasses and the wicks are still center secured by hand during the hardening of the wax. Lastly, the candles are slightly melted to ensure an even and smooth surface throughout. The scents are very refined and unique. When lit, the candles gives a natural, soft and welcoming scent to the room.
