Carrière Frères was founded by the erudite and entrepreneurial Carrière brothers in 1884. 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.
Description
Leader of the Lamiacea family, this tree, that produces odorant leaves, comes from minor Asia. Widespread in the Mediterranean region, it grows in sunny and fertile places. Its leaves remain green all year long, which in history has confered it the symbol of immortality. Used in the past to crown the heads of kings, poets and winners, the Bay Laurel also used to be Apollo’s symbol in Antiquity.
Maintaining Candle
-Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
- Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
- Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
- Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
