Sandalwoods are wild fragrant trees with tenacious leaves that grow in India’s Mysore state. Its wood was often used in building temples that to this day have kept its penetrating scent.
Carrière Frères candles are made with 6.7 oz of centuries old, 100% vegetable wax formula and a cotton wick. They burn cleanly for approximately 45-50 hours. Carrière Frères Industries scented candles feature soliflore scents, inspired by exotic or indigenous oils. These delicately scented candles are poured in a translucent, white frosted glass vessel.

As Refined as Stephen Swift Fine Furniture
Susan Webster Adams (Candles Off Main) 6/14/2012 8:53 PM
This fragrance reminds me of the Stephen Swift Furniture Studio in Nantucket. Stark white walls and warm wood floors filled solely with sleek, hand crafted, solid wood furniture. The wood is sanded to such a fine finish it feels almost like velvet. Soft curves made for comfort. Stylish tapered legs. Polished with simple oils to bring out the color and personality, each piece is a work of art. Nature made even more glorious. Anything else in the room would just add distraction. All that is needed is simple pieces of exquisite furniture for the most stunning statement. The Carrière Frères Sandalwood candle is the same way. White frosted glass and creamy white wax liquefying cleanly and glowing softly as it burns. The fragrance is nothing like the raw, sawdust scent you get some from single note wood candles. It's refined and distinguished. Full of character and elegance. Carrière Frères managed to create an almost feminine and delicate scent from such a masculine product - wood so strong and durable the scent lasts for decades. Anyone that knows my fragrance preferences enough is well aware of my affinity for trees. I enjoy the strong, heart of the tree even more than it's leafy, showy side. The Carrière Frères Santalum Album candle is a welcome addition to my collection.
