Introducing Apis Cera Candles
I’ve been following Apis Cera on Instagram for such a long time, I can’t even remember how I discovered this outstanding candle brand. Apis Cera candles are the haute couture of candles, I’m sure you will agree after these lines.
Charles created Apis Cera with the ambition of restoring candles to their former glory. He established his workshop in the heart of Provence and produces candles, soap and lip balm in pure beeswax. All Apis Cera products are handmade, in accordance with traditional techniques.
A lot of research, great care and patience in mastering the traditions led Charles to launch Apis Cera. It takes one to two years to create a perfect product before launching.
The natural beeswax is the starting point of all Apis Cera candles and cosmetics. This is the first big difference with standard candles. Did you know that most candles are made with paraffin, a derivative from coal, petroleum or oil shale?
In addition to a delicate smell, beeswax has amazing properties: it doesn’t smoke, it creates a brighter flame (the same color spectrum as sunlight!), and it cleanse the air. Nature is incredible, right?
Each candle is an absolute beauty: well-made organic shapes, unique textures pleasant to the touch and luxurious packagings. Definitely haute couture candles.
Let’s discover now more about the Lucienne candles, whose name was given in reference to the Latin word for Light. This exclusive Apis Cera creation is made by rolling a sheet of beeswax around a wax-dipped cotton wick. A specific technique to keep the honeycomb pattern. The candles are then thoughtfully wrapped in a delicate silk paper.
Lucienne candles, welcome to French Address! You will perfectly match, in size and in spirit, with the 18th century Verreries des Lumières candlestick. Top notch combo for our homes.
