Perfumery at its best

FRASSAI

The world of fragrance is without doubt one of the most fascinating and creative ones. The sense of smell is powerful, emotional, and many times unconscious. Creating a perfume collection that reflects my vision of perfumery, that speaks to discerning noses while embodying the aesthetic beauty that Frassaï jewelry and candle lines are known, was as challenging as it was fulfilling. Join me on this #scentedjourney. We are just getting started...

The best gifts for your hostess

FRASSAI

Champagne bottles and flowers are overplayed. Why not go for something more personal when choosing a gift for your host or hostess. Scented candles and home accessories are our go-to choices. Find out why below...

SCENTED CANDLES

It's less difficult than you think to choose a great candle for your host/hostess. You may already know what kind of scents the person likes, in which case you can pick up a fragrance with tons of personality, like Gustav (a fiery blend of spices and sensual notes) or Marlene (a masterful blend of leather, tobacco, vanilla cream and aged Scotch whisky). 

If you are not sure, you can play it safe with soft floral notes, like in Bebel. This is our best-selling candle for self-gifting and is adored particularly by women. Although men love it too. What is not to love about Brazil? Bebel is inspired by exotic tropical ingredients and the sounds of bossa nova. Peonies, guava juice, watery pear and sandalwood will let you travel to paradise without leaving your house; or your host's! Since this is meant to be a gift... right? 

A more classical approach to fragrance is Ada, where dewy green leaves softly caress the whitest gardenia. This is a sure way to prolong summer all year long. This floral candle will swoon any white flower lovers (gardenia, jasmine, white violets are the main fragrance notes).

If looking for something more masculine, like a smoky leather reminiscent of a jazz club, Clifford will do. Its notes of suede, incense and saffron will fill the room with delight even while it's not burning. 

Candles are indeed a wonderful and thoughtful present that indicate you've actually made an effort. We love pairing any of our scents with home accessories that are beautiful and useful as well, like our copper candle wick trimmer and the chicest snuffer you'll ever see (put out your candle with style!).

HOME ACCESSORIES

A candleholder is the ultimate luxurious gift. When you are ready to take it up a notch, gift your host a hand-finished solid copper candleholder. The base of lenga wood will not only look pretty but will also protect the surface. After burning the candle, your host will appreciate filling the copper vessel with fresh flowers before replacing with a new candle scent.

The flower of flowers - Ylang Ylang

FRASSAI

Ylang ylang - the flower of flowers - is an exotic flower with a delicious sweet scent and a touch of spiciness. Its name, which seems to repeat itself, places emphasis on the beauty of the flower, thus calling it "the flower of flowers."

 Sweet smelling Ylang Ylang

The precious yellow flower grows in the lush forests of the Comoros islands, off the south coast of Africa. The petals are handpicked by the women in the local community, providing work and insuring the sustainability of the process. This is part of the ethical sourcing efforts of Givaudan, a world-renowned fragrance supplier.

Ylang ylang is one of the main notes in our candle Bebel, giving richness and a buttery texture to the scent, which was created with nose Yann Vasnier.

La fête du muguet #1erMai

FRASSAI

Kate Middleton wedding bouquet

Today we celebrate Labor Day and la fête du muguet.

Muguet, also known as Lily of the Valley, is a delicate and beautifully scented flower that captures the essence of springtime. It was during the Middle Ages that it first traveled from Japan to Europe. Considered a lucky charm, it was offered to King Charles IX the first of May, 1851. It was then that he decided to offer it to the ladies of the court every 1st of May. A tradition was born.

Muguet Lily of the Valley Frassai blog

Fast-track to 1886, the labor movement is sparked in Chicago, demanding an 8-hour work week and better labor conditions. It would take 30 years for France to catch on. In 1919, the 8-hour work week is finally ratified by the Senate and May 1st is chosen to celebrate. 

Moving beyond labor history, it is worth noting that Muguet has been a significant source of inspiration for perfumers and jewelers alike. From Dior to Lalique, muguet has inspired and captured many hearts. 

Muguet harvest: This bell-shaped flower is picked by hand. First harvest is in May. 

We hand-picked some of our favorite Muguet objects for you, hoping it will bring good fortune too.

5 candle burning tips

FRASSAI

Want to get more out of your scented candle?

If you want your candle to last longer without the tunneling or soot while improving fragrance throw, read on, we have a few tips for you. 

1. Trim the wick

It is such a simple trick yet so many tend to overlook this piece. Trimming the wick of your candle to 1/4" before the first lighting and each time the candle is relit can increase its duration by 25%. This can make a big difference. Your 50-hour candle will last over 60 hours. That's a full month of daily scent for way less than your regular cup of Joe.  

Tools to trim: we love this engraved copper wick trimmer.

2. Keep it clean

Make sure the wick and wax pool are clean at all times. This will prevent candle smoke from forming while improving fragrance throw, the scent that is diffused in the air as the candle burns. 

Never drop your used matches into the candle; this debris can become a second wick, creating two flames and excessive heat. 

3. How long is too long?

For best results, burn candles for 2 to 4 hours. Resist the urge to light for less, extinguishing the flame before the pool has fully melted will create a tunnel. 

If you wish to experience your scent for longer than 4 hours, consider extinguishing the candle, letting the wax cool off and then relighting. You will notice that even when the candle is off the scent still lingers in the air. 

Try our chic copper snuffer to extinguish the flame.

4. Why is my candle leaving wax on the sides of the glass as it burns?

"Tunneling", or wax not being burned to the edge, may occur if the candle is lit and extinguished before the pool of melted wax has formed. Burn your candle for a minimum of 3-4 hours the first time, and 2 hours in successive lightings to ensure that a sufficient wax pool is created. 

5. Get centered

Gently center the wick once the wax has cooled off a bit. This will prevent blackening of the glass.

Do not despair, if the glass is dirty, just wipe it off gently with a dry cloth. Make sure the candle is extinguished first. Next time, make sure you let the candle burn until the wax pool is fully melted. 

Safety is important too. 

Always burn candles on a heat resistant surface, away from wind draughts and things that can catch fire. Keep away from children. Read our candle safety instructions here.

Now lighting a scented candle will be a more pleasurable experience.

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes

FRASSAI

Do you have a weekend ritual? We find that Friday sets the mood for the weekend ahead. It's a good opportunity to stop and contemplate, leave some things on our list aside for next week...

Burning traditional incense and lighting a candle can get us to that desired place. The incense we are burning now was brought back from a temple in Beijing, China and blends beautifully with our most spiritual scented candle: CLIFFORD, in honor to American jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown

Clifford Brown amazed his peers with his ability to blend technique with emotion to create a rich, full sound that earned him praise as the "preeminent trumpeter." (Source: Biography.com)

Sacred resins and noble woods burn while swirls of smoke elevate towards high heavens in homage to the deities of jazz. The golden warmth of amber and suede pair with the subtle smoky scent of incense and a touch of spicy saffron

Fragrance Notes: saffron, incense, elemi, oakmoss, suede

This highly luxurious candle was created in collaboration with perfumer Roxanne Kirkpatrick and is available here
