Carrière Frères Taper Candle Set in Jasmine
Its name comes from the Arabic ‘yâsamîn’, itself borrowed from Persian. The sweet-smelling flower grows on an Indian shrub of the Oleaceae family. Cleopatra is said to have gone to meet Marc Antoine on a boat whose sails were coated with jasmine essence.
Scented taper candles bring back the memory of decorative candles used to embellish tables at the beginning of the 20th Century, thus reconnecting us with the early years of the brand, founded in 1884.
Prized in perfumery, white jasmine or Jasminum officinale gives off sweet floral notes.
100% vegetable wax from organic European rapeseed.
Their botanical perfume prevails when opening the box; once lit up, the taper candles only diffuse a golden halo.
