Tonic, the scent of yuzu is more complex than a lemon note, more incisive than orange, and above all more exotic. Its fragrance naturally calls for a summery freshness, a tangy character and zesty green accents. The yuzu reveals a few discreet tea scents, a refined white flower petal note and a light musk veil.


Cultivated and celebrated in Japan as well as in Korea, yuzu holds an important place in oriental culture: its zest and juice are highly valued by chefs. Reminiscent of the lemon, its taste is a blend of lime, yellow mandarin and orange. Between freshness and exoticism, its aroma is both invigorating and energizing.

For centuries, Yuzu has been used in traditional medicine for its many benefits. It is known for:
- Its relaxing properties.
- Improving overall wellbeing.
- Helping to fall asleep.

Each candle is made according to ancient expertise and handcrafted in a workshop in Normandy; the candles’ perfume comes from a blend of natural raw and synthetic materials. Since 2022, candles and botanical palets were formulated with 100% vegetable wax, from European organic rapeseed.

To limit the packaging’s environmental impact, no plastic or non-essential materials are used. Carrière Frères opts for a natural approach with boxes made from 100% recycled and recyclable FSC paper, labels made from FSC paper (40% recycled) and printing using vegetable-based inks.

Measures approx.: 3.5” H x 3” dia.


- Never leave a lit candle unattended, and do not burn one for more than 2 hours at a time.
- Always burn a candle until the entire surface liquifies, and allow it to solidify before re-lighting.
- Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch at all times, to avoid any black smoke. Gently re-position the wick while the wax is still molten.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle rests.
- Once only 1/4 inch of wax remains, blow out the candle and let it fully cool before safely discarding it.
- Burning time: 40 to 45 hours.
