In 1884, Carrière Frères Candle was founded by the erudite and entrepreneurial Carrière brothers. Well-versed in 18th century wax craftsmanship, yet passionate about patents and new inventions, they set out to reinvent the candle making process. It was the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the perfect moment for them to modernize the manufacturing secrets of their ancestors and produce a new generation of candles, including long-burning “night lights". Carrière Frères was awarded a gold medal at the 1889 Universal Exposition and became the official wax supplier to the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur in Paris.
