As Ernest’s right hand from 1906 to 1940, the year the founder went into exile in the United States,
Félicie Wanpouille was much more than just a muse, largely contributing to the development of the House’s reputation.
She was passionate about fashion and design, and became the life force behind Caron,
designing a bottle, finding a name, and coming up with the communication for each creation.
A true businesswoman, “Madame”, as she was nicknamed by her closest colleagues, headed up the House from 1940 to 1962,
running the company and fighting to avoid it being lost and having to close during the war.
Félicie was a free-spirited, independent woman with a sharp mind,
yet under her hard outer shell was a sensitive, delicate soul.
All the duality of her personality is revealed in this candle where bergamot,
rhubarb, peony, violet, sandalwood and musk intertwine.
