Introducing Carrière Frères’ Siberian Pine Limited Edition 2023 Holiday Collection!
Each candle in this year’s collection heroes Siberian Pine – a gigantic, hardy, winter-loving tree that can live to be hundreds of years old. Perfectly blended with Winter Rose, Smoked Wood and Candied Ginger, the pine’s woody perfume shows three distinctive facets, altogether traditional and redolent of those treasured moments we spend together during the holiday season. Decorated with stunning botanical illustrations printed onto the vessel’s glass, these candles make the perfect gift – for yourself or a loved one – this Christmas.
SIBERIAN PINE X CANDIED GINGER
A spicy match, together Siberian Pine and Candied Ginger create a woody perfume refreshed and sweetened by a hint of ginger. The scented candle brings together the traditional scent of pine needles and the gourmet touch of candied ginger.
HOW IT SMELLS
Warm, bright ginger enhances the pine here perfectly, with just a hint of sweetness for a festive gourmand twist.
The Festive Pine x Candied Ginger candle smells exactly like those pieces of candied ginger that used to be kept in beautiful ginger jars. This scent is like chewing on one of them sitting next to a Christmas tree, perhaps opening presents. Comforting and exciting at the same time!
ABOUT THE BRAND
In 1884, the Carrière brothers took over the French Royal Wax Manufacturer (now known as Cire Trudon) with the intention to modernise it, while still preserving its historical savoir-faire.
With the industrial revolution well underway, access to electricity was becoming more widespread, and therefore candles weren’t as much of a necessity as they had been in the past. So, the Carrière brothers came up with a new way to keep candle use alive – candles as decorative objects! They create tapered and pillar candles for aesthetic use, for dinner settings or festivities, and they quickly became popular. At the 1889 Exposition Universelle (which the Eiffel Tower was built for) the brothers were awarded a gold medal for their vision and craft.
Inspired by the discoveries of 18th-century botanists and explorers, the Carrière Frères packaging and fragrances draw upon the natural biodiversity of the plant kingdom. In each and every scented candle or spray, perfume and botanical essences become one: composed like a periodic table, the Carrière Frères line honours scents extracted from herbs, roots, flowers, fruits or trees.
Each candle is made according to ancient expertise and handcrafted in the Trudon workshop in Normandy; the candles’ perfume coming from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022, each of their candles and botanical palets are formulated with 100% vegetable wax, from European organic rapeseed.
