Replica From The Garden Scented Candle
The grounding sensation of placing one’s hands in the earth; the pleasure of picking ripe, juicy tomatoes; the buzz of bees in the air. The Tomato Leaf accord combines with Green Mandarin notes to create a crisp, juicy effect.
While green and uplifting, From the Garden’s notes of Patchouli and Geranium bring a humid, earthy quality. Contrasted with the candle's freshness, the result is an elegant, crisp scent, conjuring the memory of a sunny afternoon spent in a garden. When creating this candle, perfumer Olivier Cresp was inspired by his memories of spending time in his childhood garden with his father, of taking in the plants’ scent, and years later doing the same with his own son, Sebastien.
From the Garden’s green and earthy notes remind Cresp of this transporting moment and being immersed in the tranquility of a sun-drenched garden. From the Garden candle is both a perfuming and decorative statement for your home with its precious white glass adorned with the iconic REPLICA label, emblematic of Maison Margiela. The quality of the wax and long manufacturing process offers more than 40 hours of this wonderful perfume.
Our scented candles are created and manufactured in the South of France by an expert candle manufacturer.
The manufacturing process of each candle takes 7 hours and is semi-manual. The manufacturing staff performs a visual check of each candle just before the wax has completely cooled down, to make sure there is no bubble or no lack of wax near the wick.
The manufacturing staff also straighten up the wick manually. It is a very delicate action that requires high dexterity, as the wax is almost solidified but still very hot. Then we let the candle finish to solidify and cool down.
The Replica scented candles also convey our olfactory expertise. The objective was to recreate the olfactory signature of each Eau de Toilette. Each candle scent was created by the same renowned perfumers as the Eau de Toilette. We put very high concentrations of perfume concentrate (10 to 12%) in our scented candles. Almost the same concentration as for an Eau de Toilette.
We use the highest quality wax and wick, as the combination of the two has a huge impact on the burning duration & olfactory result.
Our 7-hour long and semi-manual manufacturing process combined with the quality of our wax, preserve the olfactory molecules of each scent and guarantee 40 hours of continuous release of scent.
With their precious white glass adorned with the iconic REPLICA fabric label, the candles will beautifully light up your home. Each luxury candle has a specific colored wax, reminiscent of the scented memory it will take you back to.
The base of the wax is paraffin, then the wax producer works on the share of other mineral waxes in collaboration with the perfumer in order to guarantee the olfactory result and its stability.
As the fragrance concentrates of each scent are made of different ingredients the wax producer adjusts the share of the waxes to guarantee the olfactory result of each scented candle. As a result, each scented candle has its own mix of waxes, made of 7 to 8 different mineral waxes in different proportions.
The chandler chose to use a mix mineral waxes, as they offer a better olfactory result and products of combustion are not harmful in comparison with vegetable waxes (the combustion of mineral waxes generates water and carbon dioxide).
We use Cotton-made wicks as cotton offers the best burning duration.
