In the late 1950’s Mario and Viviane Rigaud’s inspiration was to combine fine fragrance with wax to create an entirely new product: the world’s first scented candle.
All our candles continue to be hand-made in France with unique fragrances and our own special soft wax. This gives our candles an intensity and longevity unmatched to this day.
The Rigaud story starts in 1852 when Jean Baptiste Rigaud moved to Paris from his native Auvergne. He became fascinated by the world of scent and began developing the distinctive perfumes for which the Rigaud brand would later become famous.
