We have designed for you a set of candles with simple and pure shapes cast in natural wax, molded and colored throughout using natural pigments, and with unique natural fragrances. Unlike industrially made candles, they retain a satin aspect typical of artisanal wax, which allows them to burn slowly for your full enjoyment.
The Carré and Portée candles, inspired by the shapes and colors of Henri Matisse's painting La Musique (1939), are made entirely by hand by one of the last master candlemakers in France.
Casting, molding, and straightening of the wicks are just a few of the many skills which represent the know-how transmitted from master to master.
Several steps are required to make them, starting with the creation of a silicone mold in the shape of the candle. The wax is then melted at a precise temperature, which is determined after numerous tests to find the ideal temperature for the shape and colorings used for each candle. Natural perfumes are then added, meticulously selected by our master candlemaker in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. The candle poured directly into the mold will cool for half a day before being removed and finished by hand.
The wick is made of two natural fibers: linen to preserve the flame, and cotton to allow for an ideal burn and the optimal release of the fragrances. The dyes are custom-made from natural pigments from the city of Avignon.
