Cedar Scented Taper Candles
A conifer of the Pinaceae family native to North Africa, cedar is an aromatic, durable and light wood. It has always been appreciated by cabinet makers and sculptors and is also known for its medicinal properties; its resin was used in ancient Egypt.
Scented taper candles bring back the memory of decorative candles used to embellish tables at the beginning of the 20th Century, thus reconnecting us with the early years of the brand, founded in 1884.
Cedar is a dry, sophisticated, enveloping and comforting woody note. Its unique resin is powerful and pervasive, and was used by Egyptian priests in the embalming process.
Its woody note brings warmth to the cold seasons and its antiseptic resin cleanses.
Cedar is relaxing and calming, and is known to:
✓ Promote meditation and soothe nervous tension,
✓ Help to overcome sleep disorders,
✓ Help to fight against anxiety, stress and exhaustion,
✓ Act as an excellent natural moth repellent and air purifier.
