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.
Margot is an elegantly shaped candle that stands up by herself. We know the temptation is high to keep her as a decorative piece but we encourage you to light her and to watch the shape change overtime.
Designed in: Sydney, Australia
Hand Made in: Java Indonesia
Material: 100% plant based stearin wax with cotton wick (wax RSPO certified).
Care: Place on a heatproof, non-flammable base while burning. Keep away from draughts. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Do not leave the candles unattended. Blow out candle before flame reaches 2cm from base. Not for outdoor use.
Note: Please note that due to the nature of the wax, our candles may produce a soft white film on the outside. This is known as blooming, and is a naturally occurring process. It in no way affects the quality or burning of the candle, and can be removed with a gentle wipe with a soft cloth.
