Maison Balzac is a collection of perfumed candles and delicate objects created in Sydney, Australia.
In collaboration with designer Lee Matthews, Black Sassafras was created. A candle that vividly recalls quiet walks through towering fir needles. Breathe deeply, there is a stillness that can only be found in the rare moments where, in between the trees, notes of bergamot flirt with sassafras on the breeze.
"The story behind this candle is a journey back in time and is a total fragrant reminder of when the kids were little and we used to drive up to Federal near Byron Bay, every Christmas. We would stay in the same little house belonging to our friends and the drive down the old road to their place was lined with these trees which smell like these candles. The mix of fir needle, sassafras and bergamot is the closest we could get to replicating the scent, and it comes pretty close.” - Lee Mathews.
