La Rose Aime le Poivre Candle
Protected by an antique pink mat glass, Damascus Rose and pepper passionately go up in flames. ‘Queen of flowers’ originally from Turkey, the Damascus Rose has been praised since Antiquity for the finesse of its scent and elegance. Historically celebrated from China to Persia, rose is a divine symbol. Equally rare and noble, pepper has been traded since Antiquity: a scarce commodity, it was used as a currency and is even mentioned in Roman figure Apicius’ book “De re culinarian libri”.
In between the two families - Rosaceae and Piperaceae – there is no love lost. When cold, the fieriness of the peppercorn takes over and when warm, the soft perfume of rose is elegantly spiced up.
Pepper is known for its intense taste and stimulating medicinal properties. Similarily to its lover, the rose has been celebrated since ancient time for its stimulating power and aphrodisiac properties. Together they're known to help:
✓ Overcome anxiety, tension and sleep disorders,
✓ Soothe the nervous system and encourage letting go,
✓ Naturally stimulate, energize and invigorate.

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.
