Maison De Tourmentin was dreamt up by Matthew Tourmentin and Puvan Briah one rainy afternoon in January. Matthew is the nose of the brand, he credits his french heritage for his love of perfume and takes inspiration from the unique and unsual notes often found in niche perfumery. He lovingly pours each candle in our studio and enjoys creating complex and creative concoctions. You can often find Matt scouring the internet for new perfume brands to add to his collection. Puvan is the marketer, photographer and designer, she is enthusiastic about wellness, independent business and creating an inclusive and creative community with the brand. She writes about wellness and mindfulness on their instagram page and finds comfort in passing on the lessons that she has learnt along the way. You can often find Puvan curled up indoors with her 2 dogs reading through as many books about happiness as possible. Check out our instagram to get to know us a little better - or better yet subscribe to our newsletter on our website.
We are in the business of relaxation. Our mission is to make time to yourself the one meeting you can’t reschedule. For overachievers who demand more and more from life, we create candles for you. For those who are burnt out, whose minds cannot be silenced, if you were waiting for a sign, here it is. Take some time out for yourself. Go on - Don’t feel guilty. You can thank us later. Our candles are designed to be burnt for a minimum of 2 hours at a time, if you need an excuse to read a book, knit a scarf, or whatever relaxation looks like for you, it’s on us. Use this time to let our beautifully curated scents envelope your senses while you enjoy a little slice of heaven in the comfort of your own home. Our candle fragrances are inspired by niche perfumery, utilising unique notes to provide mindfulness and self-indulgence for busy people. It is our aim to educate people about the importance of self care and carving out time alone to work on things that bring joy. We use a vegetable blend of wax specifically designed to maximise the distance and strength of scent within a room and we load our candles with high quality cruelty free fragrance oils that can dissipate evenly and travel to the furthest corners of the home. We do not use packaging or plastics and our glass is recyclable. We also offer incentives for returning 3 glass vessels to us so that we can continue the product life-cycle and use them to make more candles so let us know and we will organise getting those safely back to us!
