The tomato, a berry of the Solanaceae family, is one of the most popular fruits in the world. Few people know that it was first grown in South America, and that its name comes from the Inca “tomalt”.
Sweet and fleshy, whether in the fruit basket or veggie pot, the tomato agrees with our palates, but not all palates agree on how to pronounce it. I say tomato…
Inspired by the work of ancient herbalists, Carrière Frères’ fragrance diffuser comes in the shape of an apothecary flask. It uses the octagonal shape of the label as inspiration. Made out of recycled and recyclable glass, the fragrance diffuser is recognizable to its bluish tint. More, Carrière Frères embraces a fully sustainable approach, through carefully sourced natural components: a 100% natural alcohol-base, a recyclable cork stopper and untreated rattan sticks. Together, they provide a sound base to further distil fresh botanical scents. Running on each face of the FSC-paper packaging (Forest Stewardship Council), a floral and botanical illustration also celebrates nature.
Duration 8 to 12 weeks
Bottle size 12.5 cm H x 6.5 cm D
How to use a diffuser
When you first set up your diffuser, if you would like scent straight away, soak the rattan sticks in the bottle and flip them so the scented part of the sticks is outside of the bottle. Flip the sticks every four days or as you feel the scent is weakening.
Changing the number of sticks also allows you to control the intensity of the perfume.
The duration of the perfume will vary depending on the size of the room, temperature, exposure to direct sunlight, and draughts. All of these things can increase the evaporation speed of the perfume.
