Maison Balzac, based in Sydney, Australia, is a delightful assortment of perfumed candles and delicate items that reflect founder Elise Pioch's childhood memories in the South of France. The brand's name is a tribute to her grandparents, Jeanine and André Balzac, who inspired her with their refined taste and sensibilities.
Combining her background in fashion in Paris and Sydney, Elise aimed to create a collection that was both nostalgic and sentimental. Collaborating with artisans and perfumers from Australia, France, Japan, and Mongolia, she has designed a line of unique products that evoke olfactory memories and experiences.
Since its establishment in 2012, Maison Balzac has expanded significantly, offering a range of playful, handmade objects for daily use.
