Carrière Frères Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle - Nenuphar (Waterlily) Candle 185g
Inspirate by the National History Museum.

This establishment is the metamorphosis of an older “utopian garden”, the Royal Garden of Medicinal Plants, which already provided knowledge to the scientists who administered it, and which had been created in the 17th century on the land of Alez where, in the 16th century, the philanthropic apothecary Nicolas Houël gave courses in herbalism. On this site, the tradition of teaching natural history therefore dates back almost five centuries.



The giant waterlily's top note, a vegetal yet subtly floral fragrance, is augmented by succeeding tones that are both fruity and addictive. Its moist, floral facets then open out with coloured notes, succulent and fruit-filled, reminiscent of pineapple. Coloured illustrations from botanical plates dating from the 19th Century appear through a matte, soft blue glass. In the centre of the octagonal label, we find waterlily flowers and leaves printed in gold embossing.
