bougie artisanale lou candeloun

Light becomes perfume

Of the five senses, the sense of smell is the one that can, in a fraction of a second, bring back a childhood memory , incite dreams, relax. The creators of Lou Candeloun candles take you on a journey to Provence and the shores of the Mediterranean with unique and yet so lively combinations of scents.


A trip without leaving home . Imagine yourself in a market in Provence. You wander through the stalls, it smells of thyme flower, then sage and cloves.

Here are the fruits: plump melons and fresh figs… Did that whet your appetite? What would you say to a little pastis before sitting down to eat?... Having finished your meal and siesta, you leave the village and approach the sea. The Mediterranean offers itself to you, sparkling. You are heading towards the creeks , the sun is burning but you are sheltered under the coolness of the pines… The day is declining and you are finally entering Marseille. From the top of her hill, the Good Mother awaits you. You push the heavy leaf, a smell of wood and incense envelops you. You close your eyes and dream of your next vacation… perhaps on an island to the west where leather and blond tobacco mingle with vanilla flowers; perhaps in that land, far to the east, where ginger, wild pepper and kaffir lime grow...


These perfumes and others, Lou Candeloun has made candles from them. 

Handmade candles, beautiful to look at and good for your health. Candeloun means candle in Provençal. The production could not be done elsewhere than in this south so rich in scents. The candles are poured one by one, by hand, the old fashioned way. In addition to the perfumes, their specificity comes from the very nature of the wax: no paraffin derived from petroleum . Lou Candeloun's wax is 100% vegetable and natural, it does not alter the fragrances, does not hurt the lungs and is of French origin. Even the wicks are natural cotton.
