POLIANTHES TUBEROSA – TUBEROSE
Tuberose is a herbaceous plant of the Agavaceae family. From Mexico, it travelled 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. An enthralling scent of fruit and honey, the tuberose carries the intensity of love.
Its fragrance is considered one of the most powerful in the plant kingdom. Tuberose is a flower of love and intense sensuality: fruity and honeyed, almost narcotic, its scent is that of skin and ecstasy. It is powerful and known for:
✓ Its narcotic and relaxing properties,
✓ Its ability to reduce stress, anxiety and tension,
✓ Its deodorising properties,
✓ Its ability to increase intuition and help solve difficulties.
The 185g candles will burn for 45-50 hours. Please follow the instructions enclosed with your candle to get the most out of it.
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.
