Carrière Frères | Natural History Museum Waterlily Candle (185g)
Carrière Frères has collaborated with the Paris National Museum of Natural History to showcase plants that are unique, exotic, and rich in history
Waterlily or Nymphaea is a type of perennial water plant that belongs to the Nymphaeaceae family. While there are currently 35 species of Nymphaeas around the world, in Europe until the 19th Century, only white flowered Nymphaeas were known. However, French horticulturists decided to crossbreed European and tropical species to create colorful hybrids that were later displayed in the Trocadero’s basins during the 1889 Paris Universal Exhibition and featured in Claude Monet's painting "Les Nymphéas."
The fragrance of the giant waterlily starts with a subtle floral scent combined with a vegetal note, followed by addictive fruity tones that enhance the overall fragrance. As the scent develops, it transforms into a moist, floral aroma with colorful, succulent notes that are reminiscent of pineapple. The matte, soft blue glass bottle features botanical illustrations from the 19th century, and the octagonal label has waterlily flowers and leaves printed in gold embossing at its center.
