Inspired by the work of ancient herbalists, Carrière Frères’ fragrance diffuser comes in the shape of an apothecary flask. It uses the octagonal shape of the label as inspiration. Made out of recycled and recyclable glass, the fragrance diffuser is recognizable to its bluish tint. More, Carrière Frères embraces a fully sustainable approach, through carefully sourced natural components: a 100% natural alcohol-base, a recyclable cork stopper and untreated rattan sticks. Together, they provide a sound base to further distil fresh botanical scents. Running on each face of the FSC-paper packaging (Forest Stewardship Council), a floral and botanical illustration also celebrates nature.
SANDALWOOD: Sandalwoods are wild fragrant trees with tenacious leaves that grow in India’s Mysore state. Its wood was often used in building temples that to this day have kept its penetrating scent. Sandalwood oil has been used as a remedy for ailments for over four thousand years, and is a common fixative in perfumery. It is present in Hindu and Buddhist rituals, the former often making the bindi dot out of its paste, the later turning it into incense. In Chinese medicine, sandalwood increases longevity, and builds confidence and determination.
ROSE AMBER: Known as the “Queen of Flowers”, the Damascus rose was praised in Syria for the finesse of its scent and subtle elegance. Celebrated since Antiquity from China to Persia, rose, as a flower, is close to the divine. Also much valued from Antiquity to the present, amber – a fossilized tree resin – is revered for its sacred and opulent scent, as well as its somehow magical healing properties. Between the Damascus Rose’s subtlety and Amber’s opulence, the marriage is intense: the duo joins for an eternal embrace under the bluish tint of our apothecary flask looking diffuser.
The softness of the rose comes here to sublimate the frank opulence of the amber, in a unique and subtle marriage.
ROSE MINT: Carrière Frères celebrates the surprising union between the Spearmint, deep green perennial plant, and the “Queen of Flowers”: the Damascus Rose. Between the delicate Damascus Rose and the heady Spearmint, the idyll is strong. The lovers meet themselves in the heart of a diffuser and in the shape of an apothecary flask to exhale the freshness of their love.
The rose here emphasizes the freshness of the mint. A floral and intense picture is drawn then, leaving the senses awake.

Rattan sticks diffuse the perfume by capillarity for a constant and light diffusion.
On first use, for an immediate release, soak the rattan sticks in the bottle and flip them so that the scented part of the sticks is outside of the bottle. In order to obtain a continuous diffusion, flip the sticks during the first two weeks of use and then every four days until complete evaporation of the perfume. Changing the number of sticks allows to modify the intensity of the perfume.
Perfume diffusion will last about 8 to 12 weeks. This duration may vary depending on the size of the room where the room fragrance diffuser is located, the room temperature, the exposure of the diffuser to direct sunlight, and draughts, which increase the evaporation of the perfume.
