The Artefacts collection of perfumed candles from Régime des Fleurs is inspired by artifacts of the ancient world. Each candle represents the essence of civilizations passed, together representing an amalgam of history. The collection includes four fragrances: Thaleia, Naiad, Return, and Swans. Each candle comes housed in a stately, matte bisuq porcelain vessel that evokes an antique bust or fragments of an ancient statue.

Naiad - Roman Empire, c. 2nd century AD. Scent Notes: Egyptian mint, elemi, olibanum, shiso, jasmine auriculatum, vanilla, vetiver

Swans - Gandharan, c. 500 BC. Scent Notes: Orris, sandalwood, white violet, carrot seed, white pepper, balsams and musks. 

Return - French, c. 1764. Scent Notes: Ambergris, oakmoss, powdered tobacco, labdanum resin, muguet, honeybrush. 

Thaleia - Athenian, c. 140-160 AD. Scent Notes: Orange blossom, jasmine sambac, gardenia, tuberose absolute, aqua marine, bigarade, Sicilian cypress, cedar

Ingredients

Naiad - Egyptian mint, elemi, olibanum, shiso, jasmine auriculatum, vanilla, vetiver

Roman Empire, c. 2nd century AD. In Greek mythology naiads were nymph-like feminine spirits presiding over bodies of fresh water - fountains, springs, streams, and brooks. One such nymph was the seductive Minthe of the river Cocytus. When spurned Queen Persephone discovered her husband Hades having an illicit affair, young Minthe was metamorphosed forever into a harmless common herb - sweet mint.

Swans - Orris, sandalwood, white violet, carrot seed, white pepper, balsams and musks

Gandharan, c. 500 BC. The word 'paramahansa' is a Sanskrit title of honor assigned to the most saintly of Hindu teachers. The literal translation of the term to English is 'Royal Swan.' In ancient Hindu texts the Swan was a symbol of the enlightened spirit. As a swan glides through water without getting wet, so the soul journeys through the cosmic ocean, shedding all attachments: being in the world, but not of it.

Return - Ambergris, oakmoss, powdered tobacco, labdanum resin, muguet, honeybrush.

French, c. 1764. "It is not more surprising to be born twice than once; everything in nature is resurrection." Here Voltaire playfully subverts the spiritual authority of the Roman Catholic Church by summoning the idea of reincarnation - a notion made fashionable in his time by the increasingly relevant philosophical heritage of Plato and the mystery schools of Ancient Greece. Imagine for a moment being a devout Catholic aristocrat residing at court, pondering questions of rebirth while looking into the limpid eyes of a newborn child.


Thaleia - Orange blossom, jasmine sambac, gardenia, tuberose absolute, aqua marine, bigarade, Sicilian cypress, cedar

Athenian, c. 140-160 AD. Second youngest of the nine daughters of King Zeus and Mnemosyne, her name meaning 'luxuriant' and 'blooming,' the muse Thaleia reigns over comedy. Here she is represented as a decadent and exuberant bare breasted young woman flourishing in laughter.
