Our World, About Thompson Ferrier
Thompson Ferrier is where fragrance and fashion meet to create a lifestyle of sumptuous comfort and style.
The fragrance is singular and personal – we fall in love with a fragrance as we do with a moment in time in our lives. We reminisce through fragrance; its power to recall memory is unmatched: the comfort of a childhood home, the brush of a lover, the sophistication of a Parisian street. When you choose a Thompson Ferrier candle and fragrance, you choose the key in which to live the music of your life.
Fashion is the outward expression of inner style and verve. Like our creative energies, fashion is always moving, evolving, perfecting. Our handmade candles change with the sway of seasons and the mélange of trends all around us. Our candles may be playful one moment, chic the next, then boldly luxurious. When you choose a Thompson Ferrier candle, you choose the style to express the essence of yourself moving in time.
Thompson Ferrier. New York global fashion candles – luxurious in essence, but not always in price. “Love our fragrance. Live in style.”
Our fragrance bouquet for each candle is formulated with our traditionally trained perfumers. Each fragrance is carefully selected from our library of highly fragranced essential oils and proprietary aromas. Our mission is to create an escape and conjure up memories from the past and create new ones.
WICK & WAX
Our candles are filled with a selective cosmetic grade soy wax blend creating a divine, silky and translucent texture. Each candle contains wicks that are made with 100% cotton which then, along with our perfected wax, results in a beautiful burn, clean flame and a magnificent liquification of wax.
Our vessels are designed and produced through a multiple step process. All vessels are handmade with care and precision. Due to the nature of the handmade process, variations in the finished product are natural, making each vessel unique on its own.
Thompson Ferrier fragrances are formulated and produced in the USA. During production, the fragrance is air shipped to our facility and stored in a controlled environment for final pour.
Handmade parts and hand assembly are managed and controlled by Thompson Ferrier staff.
All Thompson Ferrier candle designs are created in their New York City office.
Thompson Ferrier vessels range from glass containers to aluminum vessels to ceramic creations.
Our proprietary wax blend is subjected to rigorous testing on every batch of production to meet our strict guidelines.
Prior to any production of Thompson Ferrier candles, our laboratory will test the optimization of every batch to check the even pooling of the wax, flame height, tunneling and wax adhering to the side walls of the vessel. Our laboratory works to optimize performance within the guidelines of our specifications.
Thompson Ferrier candles are hand poured. The process requires multiple pours to achieve the required smooth flat surface we prefer and recommend.
CANDLE CARE & SAFETY TIPS
-Always keep a burning candle within sight and never leave unattended.
-Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets and any other flammable objects and decorations.
