This candle is directly inspired by the world of the Palace of Versailles. The scented Palace of Versailles candle is handmade in the purest tradition of French candle-makers. The glass bowl is made by master glassworkers.
The particular shape of this boudoir, with its cut sides, made it possible for the queen’s domestic servants to pass from the large bedchamber to the other chambers without disturbing the queen who, at midday, would go and rest there, hence the name Meridian. It was in 1781, after Marie-Antoinette finally gave birth to an heir, that the room was decorated with woodwork whose bronze motifs were applied to the sash doors. The dolphin that can be seen evokes children, while the roses, Hapsburg eagle and the peacock, symbol of the goddess Juno, are allusions to the queen.
