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.
Le Bois (wood smoke) captures the perfumes of a walk in a forest where cedarwood essence echoes with distant notes of leather and smoke. The packaging features a detail of Sydney based artist Leah Fraser's painting 'He presses against the blue and bursts into form'.
