CANDLES COLLECTION

CREATED BY HEDI SLIMANE, THE CELINE HAUTE PARFUMERIE IS BEING ENRICHED WITH A CANDLE COLLECTION. FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE PERFUMES LAUNCHED IN 2019, THIS COLLECTION IS IN KEEPING WITH THE NOTION OF THE “COUTURIER PARFUMEUR” AND REVIVES A VERY PERSONAL RITUAL - THE REDISCOVERY OF THE OLFACTORY IMPRINT OF A PARTICULAR EXISTENCE IN SPACE OR TIME, RANGING FROM THE HOMES OF PRIVATE EVERYDAY LIFE TO THE SALONS DES MAISONS DE COUTURE.

THE COLLECTION IS COMPRISED OF 6 CANDLES:
L’INVENTAIRE
PALIMPSESTE
PAPIERS FROISSÉS
TAMBOUR NOIR
GRANDS LYS
NIGHTCLUBBING

THE PERSONAL THEMES OF HEDI SLIMANE

THE CANDLE COLLECTION REINTERPRETS THE THEMES AND STYLISTIC CODES HELD DEAR TO THE COUTURIER - PARIS; THE TIMELESS ELEGANCE OF A COUTURE HOUSE, AS WELL AS FRENCH TRADITION AND ITS CULTURAL ROOTS.

THE OLFACTORY SIGNATURE

THE CANDLE COLLECTION REMAINS WITHIN THE SAME OLFACTORY LINE AS THE PERFUMES: A POWDERY AND ADDICTIVE SIGNATURE. FOR EACH COMPOSITION, THE HIGH-QUALITY NATURAL MATERIALS HARMONIZE WITH SOPHISTICATED ACCORDS. AS THE HOURS GO BY, THEIR NOTES UNFOLD IN THE ATMOSPHERE, LEAVING AN INVISIBLE AND MUTED PATINA ON FAMILIAR OBJECTS.

THE WAX-MAKER’S SAVOIR-FAIRE

GUIDED BY HEDI SLIMANE, PERFUMERS AND WAX-MAKERS COMBINE TALENTS AND SAVOIR-FAIRE. EACH PIECE UNDERGOES THE METICULOUS PRODUCTION METHOD DEVELOPED BY THE MAISON’S WAX-MAKER, ALMOST UNIQUE IN FRANCE AS TO HAVE ALSO RECEIVED TRAINING AS A PERFUMER.

THE STAGES IN PRODUCTION ARE DESIGNED TO FAITHFULLY RECREATE THE ACCORDS AND PRESERVE THE QUALITY OF THE INGREDIENTS CHOSEN BY THE PERFUMERS:
1 SLOW CASTING WITH A 24H RESTING PERIOD BEFORE THE SMOOTHING STAGE ON THE CANDLE’S SURFACE.
2 PRODUCTION IN SMALL LOTS OF A MAXIMUM OF 1000 PIECES. ONE SINGLE PROCESS TO AVOID THE PERFUME CONCENTRATE FROM HEATING FOR MORE THAN ONE HOUR WHEN IT IS MIXED WITH THE CANDLES AND OILS.
3 A LENGTHY PAUSE IN THE OPEN AIR, THE TIME NEEDED FOR THE WAX TO SOLIDIFY NATURALLY IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE PERFUME.
