Maison Balzac is a collection of perfumed candles and delicate objects created in Sydney, Australia.
Each product is developed as an ode to memories from founder Elise Pioch's childhood in the South of France. “They are like Proust’s madeleine for me! I named the brand after my grand parents, Jeanine and André Balzac, who taught me their sensibility and style.”
From her experience working in fashion in Paris and Sydney, Elise sought to create a range that was both nostalgic and sentimental. Working with makers and perfumers in Australia, France, Japan and China she has created a range of signature objects that evoke olfactive memories or experiences.
Since 2012, Maison Balzac has greatly expanded to become a house of playful hand made objects for everyday life.
Maison Balzac united with Miranda Skoczek, Melbourne based artist, to create a candle as an ode to the colours of her painting CY'S BLOOMS 2013, oil, acrylic and enamel on canvas (as seen on the candle box).
The colour pink is symbolised by notes of rose petals, the colour grey by notes of thyme leaves and the colour orange by the dust of cedarwood.
