For the design of the candle holders, Pauline was inspired by the capricious beauty of nature. No sleek minimalism, but pure, organic shapes, warm, natural tones and a soft texture.

She also works with respect for nature. “I think it is not only important, but also logical. Chemical ingredients are avoided, I consciously choose natural rapeseed wax. For the ethereal scents I go to Grasse, the world-famous perfume city. In addition, Fumaci is a local story, because the candles are made by a Belgian manufacturer.”

A Fumaci candle never goes out: Pauline invested in a strong design that remains intact even without a candle. “The ceramic candle holder gets a second life as an elegant vase, stylish flower pot or contemporary interior object. This way, Fumaci continues to provide a warm glow long after the last burning hour.”
