Carriere Freres Fig Tree (Ficus Carica) Candle: The fig tree of the Moraceae family grows on the Mediterranean basin where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. In France, figs were first harvested under Louis XIV. La Quintinie, the King’s gardener, planted over seven hundred fig trees of different varieties in the Versailles gardens, to satisfy His Highness’ taste buds. Fig leaves exhale an exquisite and beneficent vapor.
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.
