Part of Cire Trudon’s Les Belles Matières Collection, a geographic fragrant odyssey. The collection travels back to the origins of rare perfumes: it delves into the rich hours of botanical discoveries and reveals the genesis of grand olfactory adventures.
Originally sourced from Australia, British Botanists took our iconic wattle over to France at the turn of the 19th century. Mimosa has thus become the Cote d’Azur’s flower of note, as wild and impressive bushes grow along the hillside of the Esterel Massif. Delicate, elegant and vibrant, Esterel’s mimosa scent is so lifelike it transports you to a sunny day along the gorgeous French Riviera.
Top – Bergamot Peel
Middle – Mimosa
Base – Iris
This candle burns for approximately 55 – 60 hours.
HOW IT SMELLS
Esterel is a true mimosa/wattle scent – clean, powdery, but still earthy and grounded.
We love this French interpretation of an Australian native flower close to all of our hearts.
