This Just In: Carrière Frères
We are so excited to announce that we are now carrying Carrière Frères scents here at the Paris Market! And they might just have the most unique backstory of any line of scents we've ever carried. The innovative Carrière brothers began making candles in 1884 when they set out with the goal of reinventing the candle-making process. They had perfected their process by the 1889 Universal Exposition, where they were awarded a gold medal for their long-burning "night lights," and soon after became the official wax supplier to the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur in Paris. Over a hundred years later, Carrière Frères is still dedicated to the original principles that inspired the Carrière brothers from the start. Their singular scents continue to be made after the exotic & indigenous oils that fascinated the botanists & explorers of the 18th century. And their fragrances are crafted in the region of Grasse, the world capital of perfumery. The candles themselves are carefully hand-poured & each wick is made of pure cotton & is specially woven to provide the optimal burn. And for the final finishing touch, the candles are housed in glass that has been white-lacquered by a specialist. Be sure to stop by the store soon so you can see for yourself why we are absolutely obsessed with these scents!
