Inspired by the National History Museum.

This establishment is the metamorphosis of an older “utopian garden”, the Royal Garden of Medicinal Plants, which already provided knowledge to the scientists who administered it, and which had been created in the 17th century on the land of Alez where, in the 16th century, the philanthropic apothecary Nicolas Houël gave courses in herbalism. On this site, the tradition of teaching natural history therefore dates back almost five centuries.
Scent:   A plant with an intense vegetal aroma that unveils a green and aromatic fragrance softened by a woody base note.
About: Absinthe is a perennial shrub native to continental, temperate zones in Europe, Asia and North Africa. Called 'the green fairy,' absinthe was reputed to provide creative powers, and before being banned was the infamous muse that inspired writers like Emile Zola and Paul Verlaine, painters Vincent Van Gogh and Edgar Degas.
Benefits: It is a plant with energising powers, known to invigorate and help overcome fatigue.

The Carrière Frères Commitment:

Each candle is made according to ancient expertise and handcrafted in our workshop in Normandy; the candles’ perfume comes from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022, each of our candles and botanical pallettes are formulated with 100% vegetable wax, from European organic rapeseed.

To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Carrière Frères opts for a natural approach with boxes made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and printing using vegetable-based inks.
