It’s Candle Season!

The autumn chill is in the air and it’s the perfect time to start lighting your candles.  Candle season is here!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you know the story about how we started making candles?
The idea started with Melanie, a close friend of Valentina. Melanie is a true parisian hipster that searched all over Paris for the perfect all natural candles. When she couldn’t find the quality she wanted, Melanie, Valentina and Sebastien decided to make their own. It was from this experience that they started to pour candles in La Soufflerie pieces. That’s how Les Bougies de Melanie was born!

 

 

 

 

 

Our small batch production candles are hand made from the finest 100% natural wax in our Paris atelier. They are unscented and vegetable based, therefore they are bio degradable and eco friendly with no net release of carbon. Perfect for anyone that has any sensitivity to fragrance or allergies.

The candles are long lasting… A clean, long lasting burn!
Accidentally spill the wax? No problem, spills clean up easily with hot, soapy water.

 

 

 

 

 

All of our candles are made to order and hand poured by us in our parisian atelier. 
When we receive an order, we pour them and and once they cool, we hand wrap them with care for their journey to you.

 

 

 

 

 

We also have a beautiful collection of candle holders for stick candles. We’ve just released a new style called the Porta Candele that will be perfect to dress up your table for the coming up holiday season. They come in transparent and green, with and without handles to match any decor style.

 

 

 

 

 

Each candle is presented in a handmade, hand blown glass vessel made by our artisan glass blowers. We pour our candles in our drinking glasses, Verre Têtes, and jars.  Then once the candle has burned through, you have a whole new beautiful piece to use in your home. You get two things for the price of one!

Candle care

Before lighting your candle, trim the wick to about 1/2-cm in length. This allows the candle to burn more slowly and also avoid unsightly black smoke marks around the edge of the glass.

Every time you burn your La Soufflerie candle, allow it to burn at least until the whole top of the candle is liquid. This will help your candle burn more evenly for each burning session.

After blowing out your candle, re-center and straighten the wick.
When using your candlestick holder, do not let the flame touch the glass. Blow the candle out once it gets close to the candle stick holder. Do not place your candle on a cool surface like marble. If the bottom of the hot candle comes in contact with a cold material, the glass may crack.

Do not burn your candle all the way down. Leave at least 1/2-cm of wax in the container to avoid cracking the bottom.Once you have finished burning your candle, hand wash with warm water and soap until the dried wax melts away. You now have a new La Soufflerie piece to use!

Cleaning care

All plaster and terracotta pieces are not suitable for use with water. You can dust each piece with a dry cloth.

General information

These are entirely made by hand and each creation is unique. Therefore, there may be a slight variation in color, texture, and size between each piece. On the base of each item, you can feel the pontil mark left by the glassblower’s cane. The presence of this mark indicates that the glass was blown freehand. This is the beauty of handmade.

Cleaning care

We do recommend handwashing as much as possible to avoid scratches from the dishwasher and to keep the glass sparkling. But, know that our glassware is dishwasher resistant and can be cleaned in the dishwasher

Colored glass

Pigmented glass is mixed into the furnace during the glassblowing. This means that the glass itself is colored instead of painted. Our glass is durable and no changes or fading occur with continued use over time.
