Carrière Frères Candles

Founded in 1884, by the inquisitive and entrepreneurial minds of two brothers, Carrière Frères Industrie is the keeper of wax craftsmanship from the XVIII century. Awarded a gold medal at the Exposition Universelle of 1889 Carrière Frères Industrie has supplied “Madeleine” candles to the Basilique du Sacré Coeur ever since. Experience and the respect for traditions, along with a taste for innovation and a strong business sense, gave birth to a new gene-ration of candles. Erudite and demanding the Carrière brothers developed and modernized the manufacturing secrets they inherited from past wax masters. They selected the finest waxes and the most durable wicks, and strenuously sought out a formula for a purely vegetal wax that blends well with perfume while allowing slow combustion and clean burning.
