Candle | 1642

Candle | 1642

1642 is a tribute to 17th century vanitas paintings. It awakens the perfumes of Flemish artist Adriaen Van Utrecht's Vanitas - Still Life with Bouquet and Skull (1642), proceeding from a base of cedarwood to rich notes of blackberry and violet that are deepened by patchouli and peony. “It is androgynous, old fashioned, unusual and dusty,” says creator Elise Pioch, “a way to experience the painting through senses other than sight.”

Maison Balzac is a house of bespoke and ceremonious objects for everyday life, offering an illuminated collection of luxury soy wax scented candles. While based in Sydney, Australia, each product is developed as an ode to memories from founder Elise Pioch's childhood in the South of France. Evocative and sentimental, each Maison Balzac candle speaks to our olfactive memories and experiences.
