WATERLILY 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:  After a vegetal yet subtle floral top note, the waterlily reveals fruity tones that are enriched by coloured and succulent notes.
About: A perennial water plant, waterlily or Nymphaea is a member of the Nymphaeaceae family. If the Nymphaeas gather today 35 species around the world, until the 19th Century, in Europe, we only know the white flowers nympheas. French horticulturists then decide to cross European and tropical species to create coloured hybrids that will later be exhibited in the Trocadero’s basins during the Paris universal exhibition in 1889 and featured in Claude Monet’s painting untitled Les Nymphéas.
Benefits: The fruit-filled and aquatic notes of the waterlily help to overcome sleep disorders and to overcome anxiety.

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.
