This ancient wood comes from a parasitic evergreen tree. Native to the Mysore region of India, its fragrant and medicinal properties have been known for 4,000 years: Indian temples built with sandalwood have preserved its fragrance for centuries.
Its sweet and woody fragrance brings a welcome warmth in Autumn.
Used for 4,000 years, Chinese medicine has bestowed it with a positive influence on longevity, willpower and confidence. Sandalwood is reputed for:
✓ Helping to overcome exhaustion, stress and anxiety,
✓ Helping to eliminate sleep disorders,
✓ Calming the nervous system,
✓ Its relaxing action: as a natural anxiolytic, it is beneficial for meditation.
Sandalwood gives off a highly sweet, woody scent. Sensual and indulgent, its perfume is bewitching.

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.
