Of the five senses, the sense of smell is the one that can, in a fraction of a second, bring back a childhood memory, encourage dreams and relax. The creators of the Lou Candeloun candles take you on a trip to Provence and the shores of the Mediterranean with associations of new and yet so vibrant scents.
A trip without moving from home Imagine yourself on a market in Provence. You walk through the stalls, it smells like thyme blossom, then sage and cloves.
Here are the fruits: the belly melons and the fresh figs... Did it whet your appetite? How about a little pastis before dinner?.... After lunch and a nap, you leave the village and approach the sea. The Mediterranean offers itself to you, sparkling. You head towards the creeks, the sun is burning but you are sheltered under the coolness of the pines... The day declines and you finally enter Marseille. From the top of her hill, the Good Mother awaits you. You push the heavy leaf, a smell of wood and incense surrounds you. You close your eyes and dream of your next holiday... maybe on an island in the west where leather and blond tobacco mingle with vanilla flowers; maybe in this country, far away, in the east, where ginger, wild pepper and combava grow...
These and other perfumes, Lou Candeloun made them into candles. Back from the Market, Mineral Concrete and Crossing, three collections to take us on a journey.
Artisanal candles, beautiful to look at and good for your health Candeloun means candle in Provençal. Production could only take place in this south, so rich in scents. The candles are cast one by one, by hand, the old-fashioned way. In addition to perfumes, their specificity comes from the very nature of wax: no paraffin derived from petroleum. Lou Candeloun's wax is 100% vegetable and natural, it does not denature fragances, does not hurt the lungs and is of French origin. Even the wicks are made of natural cotton.
Design is an essential element of Lou Candeloun candles. Each collection has its own style. For return from the market, Weck brand glass jars with small snap-on lids. Mineral Concrete Containers are the result of an association
with Gone's, a Lyon-based brand of eco-responsible design objects. The result: a pure curve made of 100% mineral concrete and with an orange or water-green interior. For Traversée, the inspiration is metallic, silver, gold or copper plated steel grey. And if you
you want a series of candles personalized with your number or to mark a happy event it is quite possible.
