Why use a scented candle?
A candle as a home fragrance
People have been trying to make their homes more pleasant for almost as long as they can remember, especially with the help of perfume. In the Middle Ages, people were already stuffing cushions with aromatic herbs and potpourri were a real hit during the Renaissance (and discover more about the history of perfume in the Middle Ages and the use of fragrances during the Renaissance with our dedicated articles)! Today, there are many ways to scent your home: burning incense, using an essential oil diffuser, spraying a room mist… But lighting a scented candle remains one of our favorite ways to fill your living room with a delicate smell. The scented candle has become in a few years an essential of the home fragrance. Practical, aesthetic and concentrated, it is the ideal accessory to quickly create a soothing environment.
Decorative scented candle
While its olfactory power is greatly appreciated, the scented candle has also been given the title of a decorative object in its own right. With a pretty decorated glass jar, a scented candle can be admired even when it is not lit. It will then sit proudly on a shelf, a dressing table or an entrance console. To give it even more elegance and refinement, you can also protect it under a transparent glass cloche (our Swedish friend offers pretty models at affordable prices) or cover it with a hood. The trick? This will trap the subtle odor of the scented candle to maximize the intensity of its fragrance during combustion.
Once lit, the bewitching flame reveals a pleasant glow. This subdued light will perfect the atmosphere of a candlelit dinner… Or will slowly lull you into a well-deserved nap. You understood it, for a perfumed AND decorated interior, it is well on the candles which it is necessary to bet!
Which scented candle to choose ?
French and artisanal scented candles
At Carrément Belle, our scented candles are designed entirely by hand and made 100% in France.
The choice to offer you French and artisanal scented candles has always been an obvious one. It is certainly not the easiest one but it is what brings sense and a beautiful part of humanity to our products. Working with local partners with incomparable skills also allows us to offer you candles made in France, of great quality, modern and original at the same time.
Before filling your living room with perfume, our scented candles are the witnesses of a myriad of exceptional know-how. First, they are hand-poured by our wax makers whose workshop is located a few kilometers from Grasse. The wax is concentrated with essences made by Laurent, our historical perfumer from Grasse. The glass jars then pass through the hands of the silkscreen artist, who meticulously applies the decoration on each jar.
