The fig tree, of the Moraceae family, grows on the Mediterranean basin where it has been cultivated for thousands of years. In France, figs were first harvested under Louis XIV. La Quintinie, the King’s gardener planted over seven hundred fig trees of different varieties in the Versailles gardens, to satisfy His Highness’ taste buds. Fig leaves exhale an exquisite and beneficent vapour.
Carriere Freres is a French candle line that was founded by a team of brothers in 1884. They selected the finest waxes and the most durable wicks and brought them to the masses. Fascinated by Botanic, they strenuously sought out a formula for a purely vegetal wax. The result was a recipe, free of paraffin and other petrochemical derivates, which does not produce smoke or unpleasant odours, and is easily blended with perfume. This wax is still in use today and allows for slow combustion and clean burning.
These candles have a maximum burn time of 90 hours. Burn your candles until its whole surface is melted. Take off, with your finger, the carbonized part of the wick between each use of the candle. Avoid burning the candles much further than 1 cm or 0.4 inches from the bottom of the glass.
