Carrière Frères botanical candles at Botanique, Green Lane, Bowral

Carrière Frères was the first company in France to introduce fragrance to candles.  In 1884, Carrière Frères was founded by the erudite Carrière brothers.  Well-versed in the 18th Century wax craftsmanship and passionate about new inventions, they set out to reinvent the candle making process.  At the dawn of the revolution, it was the perfect time to modernise the manufacturing secrets of their ancestors and produce a new generation of candles, including long-burning ‘night lights’. Carrière Frères became the official wax supplier to the Basilica of Sacrè-Coeur in Paris.   They have a unique wax formula that allows for a clean and even burn.  Inspired by scientific discovery, Carrière Frères now explores the world of scents.
