Tell us about Ensemble…

 

Everyday objects reconsidered, starting with scented candles.  They’re made in Grasse and are poured into eco-responsible serigraphed glasses.  Every trimester we highlight a charity organization and redistribute part of our profits.  When you purchase an Ensemble candle you’re not only buying something that’s well designed and pretty, you’re also doing a good deed, something meaningful for yourself and for someone in need. 

 

There are 3 candles:  Chiara, Jerome and Abigail.  The fragrances are inspired by people involved in the Ensemble project.  The Chiara candle is our Figuier scent, sunny and profound like the founder of Led by Her, our first partner charity.

 

How does the Riviera inspire Ensemble?

 

Every time I go south I return to the comforting atmosphere.  It’s feeling surrounded by warmth and generosity, the magnificent light bathed environment and sun tinted countryside.  People here are more sentimental than in Paris.  I wanted to transcribe that particular emotion in my candles and in the Ensemble concept in general.

 

What are your personal ties to the Riviera?

 

I grew up in Nantes but my family is from Nice.  When we go to the South of France, I always think about the times I spent in the hills of Grasse and the fields of flowers, a walk through the old town while smelling the artisan perfumes, followed by a visit to the very academic perfume museum.  It made me want to come to Grasse one day to make my own fragrances.

 

What’s your solar mantra?

 

No problems, just solutions.
