Sometimes the destinies of two prestigious houses intertwine. This is certainly the case for Cire Trudon and Carrière Frères. While the former is renowned throughout the world for designing candles made from beeswax, which won it favour in the Court of Versailles, the latter is somewhat more discreet, yet just as prestigious. Founded in 1884 by the Carrière brothers, Carrière Frères produces candles in the same factory as its sister company, Cire Trudon. At a time when electricity started to appear, the Carrière brothers had an illuminating idea: to make candles a decorative item as much as a useful object and, more importantly, to move away from their traditional ceremonial role. Employing the skills of master wax workers, the duo reformed their techniques and presented new designs which earned them a gold medal at the 1889 World's Fair. To this day, Carrière Frères continues to pay meticulous attention to every detail. Perfumes designed in the region of Grasse, wicks positioned by hand to ensure they are centred perfectly, lacquered glass and sleek finishes... everything is considered to ensure these products are exceptional... and always eco-friendly. Working in partnership with Robertet, a specialist in natural ingredients, Carrière Frères also places great importance on buying raw ingredients at ethical prices and supporting agricultural cooperatives and sustainable development programmes. Likewise, the brand's packaging and containers are thoroughly selected. The concept: reducing its carbon footprint. Practices that the wax producer also applies to its range of products. From botanical palets (wax palets with flower and fruit insets, to hang from door handles or slide into drawers) to diffusers and sprays, the brand takes pride in offering beautiful and eco-friendly accessories.> View more
