Other colors


The Carré candle is part of the La Musique collection, inspired by Henri Matisse's eponymous painting (1939).

Created by the Studio Maison Matisse, the Carré candle is declined in a range of 6 colors finding their inspiration in the palette of the painter's painting, perfectly matched with the other pieces of the collection.

Its realization was entrusted to one of the last master master chandlers still active in France, based in the South, and distinguished by the label of the Métiers d'Art. Entirely handmade, the Carré candle has many advantages that industrial candles do not have.

All the dyes are custom made from natural pigments. As for the perfumes, carefully selected by the master wax maker, they come from the city of Grasse, known as the world capital of perfume.

The black Carré candle has a unique santal scent, chosen by Maison Matisse.

Today, more than ever, the candle has a place of choice in our homes, becoming a decorative piece in its own right.

Arts and materials

Its manual manufacturing process allows it to obtain a wax with fewer air bubbles, thus offering a much slower combustion. In total, two days and seven interventions are necessary to make each candle. Casting, molding, straightening the wicks, … : a know-how passed down from master to master for generations.
