Le Potager du Prince
Fruity Black Fig
The sweet scent of black figs lightened with floral notes Summer's end at the Château of La Roche Guyon. A princely fig tree stands at the edge of the kitchen garden. The ground is littered with its heavy black fruits, filling the air with their sweet odor. Amid a shower of pale green petals, the queens of the garden – Lily, Cyclamen and Freesia – salute the fig-lovers, come to fill their baskets.
Scenting the home is also an art. Creating your own scent atmosphere is a ritual promoting well-being and serenity.
We aim to offer you finest quality candles, which means selecting the right wax: it must be the best medium for expressing our fragrance and also burn evenly at the surface of the candle holder.
We also work with the master perfumer to adapt the fragrance to the wax (and vice-versa) as well as fine-tune the olfactory signature and power of the scent. The candle is tested both “cold” and when lit to make sure that its olfactory delivery and quality remain unchanged. While the cost of perfuming our candles is significantly higher than the market average – which is the price to pay for quality – we stand firm in our resolution to produce the finest candles possible. Whether our candles are lit or not, they will scent your home with an evocative branded signature.
Do not place the candle in a draft (this is to protect the wick).
Keep away your candle from flammable objects, pets and children. Do not leave the candle unattented. Always place the candle on a heat resistance surface. Trim the candle wick prior to each use and keep the wick centered, vertical. It should not exceed 6 mm in length. This is to extend the candle's life and help prevent black smoke.
Our advice : Never use your candle for less than half an hour or for more than 3 hours.

La Manufacture des Châteaux chose a well-qualified partner, La Maison Française des Cires, to make its scented candles. The perfume concentrate is skillfully blended into a selected wax that will fully and delicately convey its scent notes. The wax melts evenly at the surface of the candle holder. Candles bearing the Manufacture des Châteaux signature continue to give off their fragrance liberally down to the last gram.
This deliciously scented wax needed a candle holder. The job required the services of a sculptor and a porcelain-maker. Each candle-holder is hand-cast at La Manufacture de Porcelaine Merigous to produce refined porcelain objects whose glaze gleams in the candle light. Founded in 1954, this family-owned business has won recognition as an Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company), a mark of recognition awarded by the French Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Tourism. The business is renowned both for its work in porcelain on historic restoration projects and for the custom production of creations by designers, architects and studio artists.
