Candle Melon 185gr
In 1884, Carrière Frères 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. Carrière Frères candles feature a unique wax formula that allows for a clean and even burn. Inspired by the indomitable spirit of scientific discovery, Carrière Frères now explores the world of scents.
Carrière Frères Candle Melon with the main scent of Melon - the fruit of an herbaceous plant of the same name discovered in Africa. A member of the Cucurbitaceae family along with the cucumber and the pumpkin, its sweet flesh is watery and gently fragrant. The melon only ripens in southern lands.
A nuanced aroma of banana and pineapple remains before giving way to a slightly musky finish. Joyous and summery, the scent of the candle is light, aquatic and fruity.
