Scented candles have been an exploration of scientific discovery for perfumers since the 1850’s when Viviane Rigaud, the wife of celebrated Parisian perfumer Jean-Baptiste Rigaud developed and patented an innovative wax formula which held the Rigaud perfume. The earliest known candles were made from whale fat in China around 200BC and did not appear in Europe and the Middle East until 400AD. Being solely functional they were a source of light and measured time. They became the aesthetic and sophisticated fragrances of self expression we know today during the 1960’s when they started filling homes across the world with effortless chic, crisp clean smells which mirrored clean and tidy houses to musky romantic boudoir scents which enticed and wolf whistled your pheromones into a frenzy. http://www.rigaud-paris.com Our senses…
