Notes & Details
Experience and a respect for tradition, Carriere Freres has been a trusted manufacturer of wax candles since 1884. Selecting the finest waxes and most durable wicks, they developed a formula for a pure vegetal wax which can be easily blended with perfume. Carriere Freres has been the supplier of candles to the Basilique du Sacre Coeur in Paris since 1889. Eclectic Cool has imported Soliflore range of candles in ten fragrances. These scents are evocative of 'la Belle Epoque', a golden age where the flowers brought by traders all over the world to Les Halles were turned into intoxicating bundles of scent and were used in the romantic 'language of flowers'. Tuberose is a herbaceouse plant of the Agavaceae family. From Mexico, it traveled to Europe in the XVII century and has long since adapted to continental climates. To conserve their sensual fragrance intact, tuberose flowers are hand-picked. In Italy, young girls were forbidden to wander around gardens where the powerful flower bloomed, for fear their intoxicating smell would rob the girls of their decency. Enthralling scent of fruit and honey. The tuberose carries the intensity of love.
