A symbol of immortality, its leaves remain green all year round. Head of the Lauraceae family, the bay laurel is native to Asia Minor: commonly found around the edges of the Mediterranean, it was used to crown kings, poets and victors. It was the symbol of Apollo in ancient times.

Its camphor note is known for:
✓ Being a general stimulant,

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.
