Born of the incestuous relationship between a king of the eastern Mediterranean and his daughter, Adonis was saved by Aphrodite, who, by the beauty of this newborn, hid it in a chest that she entrusted to Persephone. The queen of the underworld fell under her spell. Adonis became a very handsome young man and when Aphrodite returned to the Underworld to claim it, she was confronted with Persephone’s refusal to let him go. Zeus intervened and decided that Adonis would spend the first four months with Persephone, the next four with Aphrodite, and the last four with whatever he wanted. The young man respected the divine judgment and decided to spend his free time with the goddess of love.
The name of one the most famous and lusted-over lovers of the goddess of love stimulated our imagination. Fragrance blends with ame to symbolize our desire: combine then sublimate scent and sensuality. ‘Adonis’ was thus born, and, to make it grow, we had no other choice than to o er it the nest Talents. The know-how and high standards brought to the conception of these top-of-the-range candles can be summed up in the wish to o er you a unique olfactory signature. Adonis is an object with evocative lines and an accepted invitation to the pleasures drawn by the ickering of a ame. What a joy to share with you the intimacy of your nights and the ful lled dream for all us women of thereby being able to irt with Aphrodite’s favourite.
At the outset, when Claire and Marie unveiled their project to us, we anticipated a return to sources for us perfumers, the occasion to take up again with this ‘per fumum’, this smoke that brings heaven and earth closer together. Hence our initial desire to link rich, carnal terrestrial matters, subject them to re, and extract subtle vapours, dancing like volutes of smoke. Then, turning our attention to Olympus, revisiting this vast playing eld, we rediscovered the celestial escapades and volcanic character of these goddesses, whether jealous, vengeful, nurturing or simply beautiful… Muses whose names breathe inspiration! Mythology is a breeding ground of olfactory tales with an elastic aesthetic, imbued with symbols, centuries of tradition as well as personal stories. We had a lot of fun nding in these myths the means for tingeing each of our creations in a singular way.
Might this be an ode to femininity, to sensuality? Illustrated by the mythical goddesses I have drawn, one more beautiful than the next, the research into the design of these candles fascinated me… Each of these goddesses symbolizes an energy: sometimes powerful, sweet, luxurious or, again, sensual, which I felt instinctively and profoundly… and which every woman has in her, asking only to be revealed. Every drawing represents their peculiar qualities, which are to be found in the scent of each candle. The aim of my drawing is to re ect as well as possible this fragrance meant to make us dream and sublimate those unforgettable moments in our life…
The scented candle unites light and perfume. Often mixed up with mythical intrigues, the candle plays a spellbinding role in awakening our senses. Claire and Marie wanted to o er to the Adonis candle collection the excellence of traditional French heritage. Our master wax worker elaborated a blend of waxes allowing for faithfully reproducing all the subtleties of each note. Thus, every Adonis candle is unique, its scent of unequalled subtlety thanks to a wax of its own, worked and re worked, again and again. Then, each candle is poured individually and hand checked to o er you irreproachable quality, in keeping with ancestral know-how. The scented candles are delicate, subtle, and sensitive, their elaboration carried out with the greatest care. This combination of slowness and rigour makes them a luxury object.
