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. Inspired by this and the Romantic Period, Lisa travelled to the south of France in 2012 to study the Art of Perfumery. Since then Lisa has been dedicated to creating pure, natural, ambient candlelight with a delicate fragrance, and continues 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 candles. Available exclusively online at Lisoire.
All beautifully created and handmade by Lisa of Lisoire.
Why the name Lisoire you might ask? This was the first word my eldest brother spoke to me when he miraculously emerged from an induced coma many years ago. He had suffered a severe rupture of an undetected brain aneurysm. He was not expected to survive however, following an 8 hour operation, nine days of an induced coma and months of rehabilitation, he awoke and thankfully lives and thrives still to this day.
Knowing his sister was a total francophile his first words upon seeing me, when I came to see him in ICU, were ... 'Ah, Lisoire !'. So when I started my candle business back in 2010 I was searching for a name that could explain my penchant for all things french, my heart and my spirit. Lisoire was the obvious choice.
I have two beautiful brothers and recently my other very creative brother proclaimed that, each time you receive a Lisoire Candle, you receive "Love in a Box". I thought to myself, yes! This proclamation is true!
I hope you enjoy lighting your candle as much as I love making them for you.
