Frangipani by Carrière Frères – The latest scented candle of the Museum Collection

The Frangipani scented candle by Carrière Frères was already one of the main topics in my article yesterday, Interview with Carrière Frère’s Creative Director Julien Pruvost – Focus on the Museum Collection, and today I would like to present you this beautiful piece both olfactorily and visually. The fifth candle in this enchanting line is dedicated to a tropical blossom which, as always, is depicted on the glass of the scented candle. It is worth mentioning once again that there are matching refills for the entire Museum Collection, so that you can simply reuse the candle jar. This is not only good for the environment, but also for your wallet, as the refills are naturally a little cheaper than completely new scented candles.

Carrière Frères in the Duft-Tagebuch

As one of my particular favorites, I have featured the candle manufacturer Carrière Frères several times on our fragrance blog. Of course, this is and was not without reason. In my opinion, the quality, value and beauty of the French fragrance manufacturer’s products are outstanding and it is no coincidence that the brand can look back on 140 years of history. A little more about the background facts in a moment, but first I would like to link my previous articles and reviews on Carrière Frères for all interested, room fragrance fans, scented candle fanatics and book lovers:

In the beginning was … the candle

As many of you probably already know, Carrière Frères is closely linked to the venerable and traditional candle manufacturer Trudon, which was founded in the middle of the 17th century, and became purveyor to the court of the French king in 1687. In the beginning of the 18th century, Trudon became a royal wax manufacturer, making it the oldest candle manufacturer in France. The path for the Carrière Fréres brand was paved by the Carrière brothers, who bought the manufactory in the 19th century. In addition to Trudon’s traditional products, they also wanted to realize their own ideas and visions, and so in 1884 they began producing candles under the name Carrière Frères. The brothers were able to draw on the wealth of knowledge and centuries-old craftsmanship of the House of Trudon. Even today, Carrière Frères room fragrances are still made in the Trudon candle factory in Normandy, with great attention to detail and largely by hand. A scented candle from Carrière Frères is therefore a genuine piece of French history and testifies to traditional craftsmanship of the very highest quality.

Frangipani – Museum Collection

The Museum Collection was created in collaboration with the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, the Muséum national d’histoire naturelle. In the interview with Creative Director Julien Pruvost, you were able to find out some exciting facts about this very special line. After Nymphea, Robinia, Artemisia and Pelargonium Odoratissimum, Frangipani now follows.

Like all the other scented candles in the Museum Collection, the recently launched one was created by Robertet perfumer Serge de Oliveira, who once again demonstrated his great skill here. He used the ingredients bergamot, white flowers and vanilla for the Frangipani room fragrance.

The glass is lavishly decorated in the style of the other scented candles in the Museum Collection. Various types of frangipani flowers are depicted; in addition to the familiar white and yellow, there are also differently colored flowers in rose, yellow and pink. The background is a light pastel yellow or cream, which wonderfully emphasizes the radiance and summery flair of the flowers.

As always, I start with the scent of the candle when it is not lit. Here, frangipani has a lush fragrance. Lovely, creamy, milky, tropical, with a wonderful honey-like sweetness, but at the same time fresh and delicately vanilla-like. Even in this state, the candle smells wonderfully of summer and should appeal to fans of cheerful floral room fragrances with an exotic touch.

Now I quickly pull out the match and start sniffing! As usual, the scent of the lit candle is more transparent and naturally warmer. Very creamy and delicately floral. The honey sweetness is more subtle, which means that the room fragrance is not overly sweet overall, which I really like. Frangipani creates a subtle, summery floral fragrance that fills a room in a discreet, understated way and never comes across as overpowering or garish, but is always well-balanced and authentic. If you are looking for a fine and distinguished, elegant and high-quality room fragrance that not only smells wonderful but also looks beautiful, the scented candles of the Museum Collection and Frangipani in particular are always the right choice. ❤️

Bereits 2010 gingen so einige Blogbeiträge auf mein Konto. Dann war ich „kurz“ weg – sechs Jahre. Umso mehr freut es mich, dass ich nun wieder die Chance bekomme, mein Näschen im Dienste der Duftrezension schnuppern zu lassen und eifrig in die Tasten zu hauen. Was Nischendüfte angeht, habe ich damals übrigens schnell Feuer gefangen. Meine Ausbildung tat dazu ihr Übriges: Als diplomierte Biologin kenne ich mich nicht nur mit Fauna und Flora, sondern auch recht gut mit der Herstellung von Ölen und Extrakten aus, was den Reiz der Parfumwelt natürlich noch größer macht.
