This summer, we’re celebrating our favorite

 

flower and food markets in Paris, France.

 

 

The markets were the inspiration for our collection of

 

 

FrenchGardenHouse Luxury Candles.

 

 

I’m sharing the two markets we love best.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEST PARISIAN FLOWER MARKET

 

 

 

 

The Paris Marche au Fleurs on the Place Louis Lépine on the Île de la Cité

 

between the Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sainte-Chapelle

 

has been there since 1808.

 

 

It’s the place Parisians go to buy their weekly flowers, blooming plants for their balconies,

 

 

and for their gardens for those who are very fortunate!

 

 

 

 

Both the covered section and the open air part is a treat to wander through!

 

The orangerie style pavilions, built around 1900, line the market

 

 

and are filled with seasonal flowers, orchids, plants, even garden shrubs.

 

 

Honestly, the flowers are beyond gorgeous, and the prices!! SO good.

 

 

 

GO THERE:

 

Place Louis Lépine, Quai de la Corse, 75001 Paris
Open: Monday-Saturday: 8am to 7.30pm. Sunday: 8am to 7pm.

 

 

 

 

 

This vibrant, colorful market and its many flowers {each one is our favorite!}

 

 

was the inspiration for our line of fragrant candles.

 

 

 

 

 

Our luxury scented candles celebrate the sights, scents,

 

 

and even sounds of this vibrant flower market!

 

 

 

 

 

Impeccably blended with a high dose of French charm,

 

 

 

our hand-poured candles are carefully crafted to provide you many special moments.

 

 

I light one of these candles every evening, just

before dinner, sort of a sweet way to remind

myself to relax and wind down. 

 

 

 

JASMIN ROSE CURRANT

 

 

 

 

Recalls an evening in Paris with friends, lingering over a pleasurable meal with a glass of wine.

 

 

Perfumed with the scent of French jasmine petals, rose, currant berries, and a hint of apple.

 

 

This is my favorite clean scent right now, for our bedroom and bathroom.

I’ve gifted it to hostesses, but also my girlfriends to light in their dressing rooms.

 

 

 l’ORANGE THE ET ROSE

 

 

 

 

Explore the multisensory magic of Paris

 

 

memories of an afternoon shopping on the Avenue Montaigne in Paris,

 

 

then sipping delightfully spiced Orange Tea in an elegant cafe

 

 

while discussing the latest fashions with best friends.

 

 

Perfumed with the rich scent of Orange, ginger, cardamon and just a touch of rose.

 

 

This scent is for the friends you love who have adventure in their blood!

It always reminds me of having tea in the Ritz.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BEST OPEN AIR FOOD MARKET

 

 

 

 

 

The Marché Bastille is one of the biggest Parisian markets.

 

 

{and also the best one!}

 

 

 

 

 

About 100 vendors sell the freshest and best vegetables, fruits, and many other food products.

 

 

 

Lively, always busy, it’s here Parisians shop for their daily and “special” meals.

 

 

I can’t get enough of all the beautiful food that is available!

 

 

{I dream of meeting Ina there!}

 

 

 

GO THERE:

Boulevard Richard Lenoir, 75011 Paris

Open: Thursdays & Sundays 8am – 1:30pm

 

 

 

These two candles were inspired by the opulent Parisian open-air food market in Paris.

 

 

 

SWEET BERRIES et POIRE

 

 

 

 

 

Perfumed with the scent of fresh sweet berries, rhubarb, succulent pears and grapefruit,

 

 

this aromatic fragrance is perfect for this season.

 

 

This candle is the one I light in the evening just before dinner.  

It illuminates that magical l’heure blue.

 

 

 

 

 

FRENCH VANILLA ET TANGERINE 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfumed with the scent of fresh sweet tangerines, rich vanilla, lemons and a hint of bergamot,

 

 

this fragrance will bring to mind the exotic food stalls at the Marche Bastille in Paris.

 

 

A wonderful fragrance we light in our office at FrenchGardenHouse.

Yes, offices filled with antiques love candles!

 

 

 

 

 

Candles are always in style, and bring that beautiful scent of “home”-

 

 

for this season, they are specially priced at 38.- and come in a box with satin ribbon

 

ready for gifting to hosts, hostesses, best friends, and yourself!
