It unlocks the memory of a cozy winter evening by the chimney. The atmosphere created by this candle is warm and comforting bringing a reassuring sensation peacefulness.
The warm and smoky scent of the candle has required many hours of work to adjust the ingredients of the fragrance created by renowned perfumer Marie Salamagne, and produce the exact same feeling of a reassuring warmth with the candle. Marie Salamagne used Cashmeran mixed with Clove oil to recreate the sensation of wood burning in the chimney (clove brings the burning effect of the wood). She reproduced the addictive scent of grilling Chestnuts using a Chestnuts Accord and the spicy effect of Red Berries.

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.

Best is to leave the candle burn for 3 or 4 hours at a time.
- Smother the flame using a candle snuffer and avoid blowing out the flame.
- Trim the wick between each usage to obtain a length of 3 to 5 mm.
Reposition the wicks after blowing out the candle.
- Never place a lit candle in a draught or on a glass, wooden or marble surface.
