Sichuan Pepper Candle
Sichuan pepper is named for the mountainous region in China where it has been grown for centuries. Called “flower pepper” in China, this spice rare in Europe is not actually a pepper. Belonging to the Rutaceae, that gather the citrus framily, its berries are more reminiscent of a fruit than a peppercorn.
A balance of fresh citrus and spicy notes, Sichuan pepper is strong and aromatic. In its complex bouquet, notes of fresh citrus, green and bergamot contrast with warm, spicy notes.
Sichuan pepper is known for:
✓ Its invigorating and aphrodisiac properties
✓ Strengthening the immune system

Each candle is made according to ancient expertise and handcrafted in our workshop in Normandy; the candles’ perfume comes from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022, each of our candles and botanical palets are formulated with 100% vegetable wax, from European organic rapeseed.
To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Carrière Frères opts for a natural approach with boxes made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and printing using vegetable-based inks.
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.
