For the realization of these scented candles, we worked with suppliers and artisans passionate about their trade. The artisan perfumer, master chandler, glassmaker, designer, and glass designer, are all based in France.
The perfumes that we have imagined for HōV are made by an artisan perfumer with over 40 years of experience. He creates each olfactive story to measure. The culmination of these fragrant creations is the result of a long process of research, collaboration, and sharing. Our perfumes are produced in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, located in the south of France.
In order to create the desired effect, our chandler, who is also a perfumer, finalizes the mineral wax composition, sometimes adding vegetal wax in accordance with the perfume and the container, to make the candle as potent and diffusive as possible. He then chooses the diameter of the leadless cotton wicks and places it in the middle of the container, recentering it several times before trimming — all by hand.
Our decorations are imagined and made in collaboration with designers. The drawings are made in the image of olfactive stories to create a complete immersion in the ambiance we aim to evoke. The containers are from a glassmaker in the north of France and are decorated at Glass Valley, a worldwide luxury bottle center located in the Bresle Valley in north-eastern France.
