Good news for all passionate lovers of Carriere Freres scented candles. There are some new blends of delighting fragrances ready to be tasted. The iconic Parisian candlemaker has surprised us with Gingembre, Thym, Romarin and Basilic candles. They naturally inherited the brand’s famous formula of the high-end wax craftsmanship that has built up the brand’s reputation ever since its foundation.
By modernizing old secrets of the greatest wax makers, Carrière brothers developed their first smoke-free, purely vegetable waxes at the end of the 19th century. The same technique is still used in the fabrication of Carriere Freres candles, providing slow combustion and clean burning. Free of paraffin and other petrochemical derivates, these high-end waxes do not produce smoke or unpleasant odors and they easily can be blended with perfume.
Carriere Freres works closely with botanists and perfume experts in order to take the most adorable flavors from nature and incorporate them into the brand’s luxury candles. With their delicate fragrances, Carriere Freres candles manage to evoke the flower markets of Les Halles of Paris where, at the end of the XIX century, exotic and rare specimens were brought from faraway countries.
Like all the brand’s products, new candles also come with cool botanical design of their frosted glasses. Thus, Carriere Freres Gingembre (Ginger) Candle shows the image of the plant Zingiber officinale whose rhizome ginger or ginger root gives spicy, woody aroma to the candle. Ginger cultivation began in South Asia and has since spread to East Africa and the Caribbean where it is used as a delicacy, a medicine or a spice.
Carriere Freres Thym (Thyme) Candle presents thyme, a delicate looking herb with a penetrating fragrance, which is often used for culinary and medicinal purposes. High-end vegetable wax of the candle burns slowly and neatly for about 50 hours, allowing you to feel the healing effect of this delicate aroma.
The next herb that has become a part of the Carriere Freres family is rosemary, a woody, perennial herb with fragrant, evergreen, needle-like leaves and white, pink, purple or blue flowers, native to the Mediterranean region. Its gentle, minty aroma is presented through a Romarin (Rosemary) Candle. Finally, the renowned candlemaker comes with Carriere Freres Basilic (Basil) Candle that releases another essential fragrance from my kitchen. The culinary herb Ocimum basilicum or, as it is often called, basil or sweet basil, originates from India and other tropical regions of Asia, having been cultivated there for more than 5,000 years.
