no. 03 l'etang noir candle

Louis Marie Aubert du Petit Thouars was a pioneer in French botany. Exiled to Madagascar during the French Revolution, he made history by compiling a collection of over 2,000 plants and returning to France where he was elected to the Acadèmie des Sciences. His great-granddaughter, Marie, grew up in Belgium making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s greenhouse. She’s built upon the botanical history of her family with fragrances that focus on illustrious scents imbued with floral blends. The L’Etang Noir Candle takes its name from the enchanted lake that the family’s children played on and explored in their youth. This scent combines tobacco flower with a rich spice blend of vanilla, anise, nutmeg, ginger and clove. Made in California.
