Carriere Freres Candle - Gardenia
Inspired by exotic botanicals these candles not only look and smell beautiful but have an interesting history. Carrière Frères Industrie was founded in 1884 in Paris, by two inquisitive and entrepreneurial brothers. It was the beginning of the industrial revolution that the Carrière brothers pioneered a new era of wax-making – they created a candle that burned for 6 hours, with a constant beam of light and without smoke. Their work was awarded and this saw the generic indoor candle turn into an object of comfort and quality. They sourced the finest waxes, and most durable wicks and worked closely with their interest in botanics to bring a range of quality candles to the masses. This wax and recipe is still being used today – they are smoke-free, long burning and free of any paraffin’s or petrochemicals.
Gardenia (Tiare) – The Polynesian tiare, of the Rubiaceae family, is the national flower of Tahiti. Amongst the most famous gardenias, the tiare is deliciously aromatic and a symbol of beauty. Women coat their skin and hair with its essential oil monoï, with glowing effect.
