OpAArk: the ethical and natural Parisian candles
On the blog of the Green Hotels Paris, we maintain our focus on the French brands which innovate for the well-being of our environment. Today, it's OpAArk’s turn, a brand of candles with wooden wicks made of soya wax. OpAArk was created in 2016 by two inhabitants of Nantes, Antoine and Arnaud. It is in their workshop in Belleville that these natural and ethical candles are conceived, with scents of cut grass, orange blossom, tea, leather, fig or snuff box, all selected in Grasse. The soya wax used is 100% biodegradable, without pesticides nor GMO. The candle jars come from a glass factory situated a few kilometres away from Lyon. So, even if summer is coming, we’re still unable to resist these small ethical candles at low prices (sold at 14 euros), and their soft scents.
OpAArk candles are available online on the brand’s website (in French), or in several Parisian stores such as Délire et Ecrire, in the 17th arrondissement of Paris.
