Carrière Frères Fig Candle
Made in France by Carrière Frères, heritage candle makers since 1884.
Fig leaves exhale an exquisite and beneficent vapour.
Each fragrance is created and produced in the region of Grasse, the world capital of perfumery.
The fig tree, of the Moraceae family, grows on the Mediterranean basin where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. In France, figs were first harvested under Louis XIV.
La Quintinie, the King’s gardener, planted over seven hundred fig trees of different varieties in the Versailles gardens, to satisfy His Highness’ taste buds.
Every ingredient of the Carrière Frères formula is weighed and melted, with the perfume blended in at the last instance. Candles are then hand-poured; each holds 6.7 oz. of scented wax.
