Carrière Frères 'Scented Candle' Collection (185g)
With a history centred on botany, traditional expertise, French manufacturing and essences that follow the seasons: the universe of Carrière Frères enriches your interiors with aromatic fragrances.
Carefully handcrafted in workshops in Normandy, Carrière Frères’ scented candles contain many manufacturing secrets.
By respecting the purest essence of each botanical element, they seek to perfectly refine and stimulate the emotions often associated with them.
Step by step, they are eliminating or replacing any non-renewable element in their manufacturing chain: the cellophane, foam padding, ink and the cardboard they use which is now 100% recycled and FSC certified. The candles themselves are obviously not excluded from the sustainable development approach. The goal is to make all Carrière Frères candles with 100% vegetable wax by 2022.
