Launched in 2010 Lisoire initially began in a provencal inspired studio nestled amongst Peppermint, Manna and Stringy Bark Eucalyptus trees creating beautifully fragrant soy candles. Seven years on Lisoire is pursuing her first love, photography, alongside creating fragrant, ambient candlelight in urban Melbourne. Inspired by Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Bruce Davidson and the French companies Cire Trudon est. 1643, Diptyque est. 1961, Astier de Villatte est. 1996 and Frederic Malle Editions de Parfums est. 2000 Lisa photographs people, places and creates candles by blending the purest organic soy wax with the finest fragrance.

The history of perfumery dates back to Antiquity (greco-roman), the Middle Ages and the Arab world, the Renaissance and the emergence of perfumery at the Royal Court in France. Lisoire has studied the Art of Perfumery in France and is continuing to compose, blend and fine tune her candles for her loyal clients in Australia. Olfactory recognition, the creation of accords and the structure of perfume are all important factors in creating Lisoire’s Soy Candles. Available exclusively at listed stockists and online at Lisoire.

Each time you light a Lisoire candle you can be assured of it’s purity and cleanliness. Lisoire Soy Wax Candles do not release any nasty carbons into the atmosphere, and contain 100% vegetable wax made from Pure Organic Soybean oil. Lisoire Soy Candles are all natural, biodegradable and free of petroleum, paraffin or other petro-chemical by-product and beeswax products. Their woven cotton wicks burn slowly for up to 58 hours.

All candles Hand Made by me. All photographs taken by me.

“Sometimes I think all my pictures are just pictures of me. My concern is … the human predicament; only what I consider the human predicament may simply be my own.” Richard Avedon
