ACACIA CANDLE - 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: At first, one detects a verdant coolness, revealed by green notes from violet leaves. The scent then releases multiple golden floral tones, sunny and honey-filled, that echo its sweet smelling blooms, whose aroma resembles that of an orange tree. The acacia absolute's round, enveloping character awakens powdery notes, both green and flowery.
About: Native to the eastern U.S., the acacia, or black locust tree, has lush, cool green foliage, flat pods that hold their seeds and clusters of sweet, cream-coloured flowers. Cultivated in Europe since the 17th Century, the tree can live for over 300 years. Today, in Paris, you can still see two unique specimens, planted by King Henri IV's gardener back in 1601.
Benefits: Authentically beneficial, the acacia appeasing properties help to soothe and improve your sleep and relax the nervous system.
