Crafted in Australia by Elise Pioch, Maison Balzac candles pay homage to Elise’s French heritage and her great great grandfather, French playwright and novelist Honoré de Balzac.
While she now resides in Australia, Elise spent a much of her childhood in the south of France and her candles are inspired by the sweet fragrances that linger in her memory from this period. Each candle is made from soy wax, pure cotton wicks and essential oils. The range currently has five scents, created from a blend of natural fragrances including tea rose, rose geranium, orange flower, clove buds and cedarwoood.
AP Design House in Paddington stocks all five of the different scents, along with glass domes that can be used to gently extinguish a candle’s flame and keep it from collecting dust.
