The fruit comes in all colours - green, yellow, red and even black! With more than 2,000 species, the pear comes from the common pear tree (Pyrus communis L.) or the Chinese pear tree (Pyrus sinensis), a tree of the Rosaceae family. Known since ancient times, it is called ‘pirum’ in Latin.
Its fragrance is like its flesh: grainy and juicy, crunchy and soft, velvety and slightly sweet.
It is the embodiment of Autumn. Its sweet, juicy fragrance accompanies the end of the long Summer days into Autumn and Winter. It warms the hearts of those with a sweet tooth.

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.
