Manufacture of Lights
Five generations of wax makers have created and perpetuated this spirit in our Manufacture des Lumières in Cugand (85), located near Nantes. Our candles are made from mineral or vegetable wax, or a mixture of the two waxes to get the best benefit from each. We choose for each type of candle, with or without container, scented or not, the best composition for a very stable wax, an ideal diffusion of the fragrances and a controlled combustion. They are the guarantor of candles that do not leak or smoke. Mineral wax is also called paraffin. Very smooth in appearance, the quality and purity of this wax ensure optimal use and stability over time. It restores the delicate scent of perfume during combustion. The vegetable wax, durable and renewable, allows a good liquefaction for an optimal use of the candle over the combustions. It has a naturally marbled effect when heated. An authentic side that gives it its character. The wick also plays a major role in combustion. We use cotton wicks and adapt the braiding of each wick to the composition of the candle, to its diameter. Our candles are tinted in the mass and scented to the heart so that their color and their fragrance dress your interior until the end of the flame.
