Its name comes from the Arabic ‘anbar’. Amber – fossilised conifer resin – comes in all shades from yellow to orange to dark brown. This soft and light gem of plant origin has been prized since prehistoric times.
A creamy, opulent fragrance emerges from amber when burnt: with facets of tobacco, leather, wood and camphor, its perfume is generous and luxurious. Its scent is protective and sacred.
Amber is ideal for bringing energy to the long autumn and Winter evenings.

✓ Generating a positive emotional state and stimulating the intellect,

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.
