Maison Balzac Mini | La Rose

Maison Balzac is a collection of perfumed candles hand made in Australia.

Each candle is developed as an ode to memories from founder Elise Pioch’s childhood in the South of France. “They are like Proust’s madeleine for me! I named the brand after my grand father, André Balzac, who is related to Honoré de Balzac, French writer from the 1800’s.”

From her experience working in fashion in Paris and Sydney, Elise sought to create a range that was both beautiful and sentimental. Working with makers and perfumers in Australia, she has created a range of signature scents that evoke olfactive memories or experiences; these candles make up the core Maison Balzac range.

Since launching in 2012, Maison Balzac has greatly expanded, adding to the range to become a house of bespoke and ceremonious objects for everyday life.
