Let's continue our tour of know-how, heading for Provence and La Promenade!
HISTOIRES FRANCAISES introduces you to the know-how of this young company created by Pauline and Adrien, both masters of scents and passionate!
Naturally, they set up their company in the Grasse region, the cradle of world perfumery, in a small village above the lake of Saint-Cassien.
It is there that they elaborate together their scents. All of them are the fruit of a beautiful work in communion with nature, and embody a fleeting moment of happiness that will remain forever engraved in our memory.

A craft of today
First of all, the perfume must be created, the scent that will come out of the candle. Pauline and Adrien create their own fragrance. With more than 15 years of experience in perfumery, they create their own scents. For each of them, they start with an exceptional ingredient, such as the centifolia rose, the legendary rose of Grasse with an unforgettable fragrance. Like a cooking recipe, they combine them with other natural and ethical ingredients, and carry out numerous tests in their laboratory until they perfectly transcribe the olfactory emotion they have in mind. All their scents are produced by them in one of their 2 workshops.
Then, it is incorporated into the wax, here entirely vegetable to avoid all the harmful emanations related to the combustion. Of course the wax will have been, beforehand, heated to make it liquid.
Then, it is the phase of filling of each container which requires a great skill. And then you have to place the wick; to center it well for an optimal use of the candle.
A little ingenuity ensures a rendering that meets the requirements of La Promenade.
All that remains is to let the candle dry and put it in its beautiful box with its small ceramic and its perfume.
Then go for a walk, under the fig trees, on a Corsican path or in a garden of Grasse!... Your interior becomes a new world thanks to these olfactory walks!
