Carriere Freres Prunus Amygdalus (Bitter Almond) Candle: An ovoid shell fruit with velvety green inner skin, the almond is also the name given to the two grains it encloses. Its furtive aroma, reminiscent of barley water, cherry and hay, is incisive and bitter sweet. Endemic to Central Asia, the almond tree was brought to France in 1548. Its oil and paste have healed the skin and tempered intoxication since Antiquity. Also a beauty essential, almond denotes femininity and love.
Made by Cire Trudon, the very fine vegetable wax of Carriere Freres candles allow them to burn slowly and neatly. They are delicately perfumed, with a 50 hour burn time.
