A tree of the Pinaceae family, the cedar first grew in the atlases of North Africa. Light and sturdy, cedar wood is a favourite of carpenters and cabinet-makers.

Firstly, the glass is white-lacquered by a specialist.
Wicks are then placed and secured in each vessel.
Because every essential oil burns at a different temperature, each fragrance is paired with its own specially woven wick for an optimal burn.
Every ingredient is then weighed and melted, with the perfume blended in at the last instance.
Candles are then poured; each candle holds 6.7 oz. of scented wax. As the wax hardens, the wicks are set upright, by hand, to be perfectly centered.
Each candle is then slightly melted on top, to ensure a smooth surface.
Once cooled, Carrière Frères candles are hand-packaged.
