Childhood homes rich in memories were the starting point for a new collection of scented candles introduced by Maison Francis Kurkdjian. Dubbed “Homes Sweet Homes”, the line of five scented candles recounts personal stories that have nourished the olfactory memory of Francis Kurkdjian, the perfumer of the eponymous Maison.
Francis Kurkdjian has translated cherished memories into colors and scents, creating a collection of five candles that bring together his talent as a perfumer and personal memories.
“Rue des Groseilliers”, the street where he grew up a dozen miles from Paris, evokes the bright red berries found in the garden every summer, with their sweet juicy savors. “Anouche” proposes a a smooth, flowery sweetness with lightly honeyed and spicy notes, rekindling the unforgettable memory of the rose petal and plum jam made by his grandmother. “La Trouverie” harks back to escapades at an old farm in the French countryside of Le Perche, with an aroma of fresh straw, lavender, thyme and rosemary. “Les Tamaris” revisits the scent of everlasting flowers and acacias that grow on the Atlantic coast, where the perfumer loves to vacation with his family. And with “Au 17”, Francis Kurkdjian encapsulates the cozy and eclectic atmosphere of his Paris apartment with the mingled aromas of an open fire and Japanese incense.
From the design of the mold to the hand-decorated box, manual craftsmanship has guided the creation of this collection of scented candles, expressing the intimate memories of these special places.
