This citrus fruit has been cultivated for 3,000 years and belongs to the Rutaceae family. Originating in Kashmir, it was first brought to Europe via the Muslim conquests of the Middle Ages and the Portuguese and Spaniards later began planting it in the Americas.
Characterised by its acidity, the lemon is today recognised for its many medicinal properties and its fresh, invigorating fragrance.
An ideal addition to Carrière Frères’ range of scented candles, the botanical palets are elegant wax-accessories designed to perfume small spaces. Whether hung on a door handle, set on a bedside table, or placed in a wardrobe or drawer, every botanical palet is a seasonal invitation to uncover rare scents. Available in 5 different perfumes – Damascus rose, Syracusa lemon, lavender, cedar and orange blossom – each palet is entirely hand-made in the Maison’s ateliers. Individually adorned with a green cotton ribbon, each palet features a botanical element, sustainably sourced by l’Herboristerie de la Chartreuse through a network of local foragers or worldwide sustainable practices.
