In 1884, Carrière Frères was founded by the erudite and entrepreneurial Carrière brothers. Well-versed in 18th century wax craftsmanship, yet passionate about patents and new inventions, they set out to reinvent the candle-making process. It was the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, the perfect moment for them to modernize the manufacturing secrets of their ancestors and produce a new generation of candles, including long-burning “night lights.” Carrière Frères was awarded a gold medal at the 1889 Universal Exposition and became the official wax supplier to the Basilica of Sacré-Coeur in Paris. Carrière Frères candles feature a unique wax formula that allows for a clean and even burn. Inspired by the indomitable spirit of scientific discovery, Carrière Frères now explores the world of scents.
45 to 50 hour burning time. 3.5" x 3", 6.5oz.
Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time. Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting. Keep the wick trimmed to ¼ inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.Always protect the surface on which the candle rests. Once only ¼ inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
