Carrière Frères Fig Candle
With a long, rich history devoted to botany, lauded French candlemaker Carrière Frères enriches interiors with exceptional botanical fragrances.
Grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean, the common fig tree, Ficus carica, first emerged in France under Louis XIV. La Quintinie, his gardener, had 700 fig trees planted in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles to satisfy his passion. Powerfully sweet, fig's green, woody fragrance with a sweet, fruity top note is reminiscent of Mediterranean gardens in the summer.
The white glass vessel is adorned with a beautiful botanical illustration which also features on the printed gift box that encloses the candle.

I love all that Carrière Frères stand for and feel so proud that Dan Cooper Garden has been able to bring their incredible scents to a wider audience of garden lovers.
Carrière Frères opt for a natural approach wherever possible. Their perfumes come from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022 each of the candles and botanical palets I range are formulated with 100% vegetable wax from European organic rapeseed.
Their commitment to sustainability continues with reed diffusers. Carrière Frères use untreated rattan sticks, a recyclable cork stopper and 100% recycled and recyclable glass. The diffuser oil is created with 100% natural alcohol made from French beetroot.
To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Boxes are made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and the printing process uses vegetable-based inks.
It's been a joy to curate this collection of Carrière Frères products. I encourage you to fragrance every room in your house and embrace nature's exceptional perfumes.

Burning Your Candle Safely
Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies but for no more than 2 hours at a time. Allow the wax to solidify before re-lighting. Discard the candle when only 0.5cm of wax remains.
Keep the wick trimmed to 0.5cm to avoid any black smoke. If required, gently re-position while the wax is still molten.
Never leave a burning candle unattended.
