Refill for Waterlily Candle
True to its commitment to sustainability, Carrière Frères innovates and launches a groundbreaking refill for scented candles. This visionary initiative is a milestone in a market where packaging plays a key role.
A perennial water plant, waterlily or Nymphaea is a member of the Nymphaeaceae family. If the Nymphaeas gather today 35 species around the world, until the 19th Century, in Europe, we only know the white flowers nympheas. French horticulturists then decide to cross european and tropical species to create coloured hybrids that will later be exhibited in the Trocadero’s basins during the Paris universal exhibition in 1889 and featured in Claude Monet’s painting untitled « Les Nymphéas ».
After a vegetal yet subtle floral top note, the waterlily reveals fruity tones that are enriched by coloured and succulent notes.
The fruit-filled and aquatic notes of the waterlily help :
✓ To overcome sleep disorders,
✓ To rest and overcome anxiety.
100% compostable and recyclable container.
