This citrus fruit has been cultivated for 3,000 years and belongs to the Rutaceae family. Originating in Kashmir, it was first brought to Europe via the Muslim conquests of the Middle Ages and the Portuguese and Spaniards later began planting it in the Americas. Characterised by its acidity, the lemon is today recognised for its many medicinal properties and its fresh, invigorating fragrance.
About Carriere Freres
The story of Carrière Frères naturally follows that of the Royal Wax Manufacture, known today as Cire Trudon. In 1884, the Carrière brothers decide to buy the manufacture: passionate about historical savoir-faire, they have in mind to modernize it. Respectful of traditions, they first embrace the century-old heritage of master candle makers established in the 17th and 18th centuries.
