A candle is a way of daily living a smell: entering a room, closing eyes and slowly inhaling it for the pleasure of it. With this N°6 candle, referencing Maison Marc-Antoine Barrois (6 rue de Budapest in Paris), Marc-Antoine Barrois has wished to fill his Maison de Couture with the olfactory memories of his childhood: Memories of a large house where the elegance of his grandfather prevailed in the leather scent of a precious attaché-case. The warm atmosphere of an afternoon spent with his family in the living room beside the fireplace, with some delicate scents occasionally floating out of the kitchen where an afternoon snack was being prepared.
Perfumer Quentin Bisch has immersed himself in the universe of the couturier once more: working around the same leathery, woody and spicy frame, adding amber scents and smoothing it with smoky notes to create a scented candle which expresses his taste for refined materials. This candle has a generous complexity of woven leather warming up to the heat of balms, a signature where patchouli takes on the sensual refinery of amber to enhance the muted appeal of Marc-Antoine Barrois' boutique. A leathery atmosphere, that is at the same time thick and enveloping, and made even by the golden lights of cistus-labdanum. A comfortable scent, that is shimmering and twisted with the spicy notes of cumin and saffron. There is also a fruity hint, tasting like peach and plum which lights up the harmony of amber and wood in which sandalwood and patchouli notes unite.
Made in France and comprised of 60% natural and 40% mineral wax to produce the optimum burn and scent throw and reduces soot emissions.
TOP: Plum, cumin
HEART: Cistus absolute
BASE: Storax, leather accord, sandalwood, patchouli, white musk

Ten years after creating his own Haute Couture brand, French couturier, Marc-Antoine Barrois launched his very first perfume, B683. Building on the timeless and charismatic elegance of his mentors, B683 is a complex heady fragrance, triggering memories past but simultaneously firmly rooted in the world of his world of contemporary designs.
Ultimately, B863 is an invitation to explore; to travel on his planet where bespoke unique pieces, jewels and accessories meet poetry, dreams with arts and crafts in perfect harmony.
Building on this early success Maison Marc-Antoine Barrois continued to delight the fragrance world with his second creation - Ganymede. Emancipated from traditional rules, Ganymede is a celebration of luminous and fluid elegance. Light and dark with an almost addictive quality, Ganymede's soft leather tones pull you into a world of sophisticated sensuality.
Having truly demonstrated his creative skills Maison Marc-Antoine continues to build his collection with the launch of B683 Extrait and his stunning latest creation: Encelade.
