Sophie Lou Jacobsen and Maison Balzac have come together to create La Pluie (French for "the rain"), a scented candle evoking the first drops of rain to fall on the city. An invigorating perfume with notes of petitgrain, white musk and black pepper. Each candle is presented in one of SLJ’s much-loved ripple cups.


Limited edition.
Available in Large size only.

Olfactive notes: Petitgrain, White Musk, Black Pepper.

Materials: Soy and Coconut wax blend with cotton wick.

Made in Sydney, Australia.
Size Large: 300g approx. 70 hours burn time.


To ensure an even burn and the best scent throw experience, be sure to trim the wick to 5mm before each use.

After extinguishing the flame, make sure the wick stands upright in the centre of the vessel.

Never burn a candle for longer than 2 hours, or when the wax level reaches less than 2cm from the vessel base.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep away from draughts, children, pets, or flammable objects like curtains.

Always ensure candles are placed on a non-flammable base while burning.

“Something that makes me think of my childhood is simply the smell of rain on concrete. A very particular fragrance that has followed me from Seattle to Paris, London and New York, which evokes the city and all the energy, the noises and lights that it carries with it. Something that is refreshing, energetic and awakens the spirit.”

– Sophie Lou Jacobsen

United by a focus on objects for everyday use, Sophie Lou Jacobsen & Maison Balzac mainly use glass as a medium to express their unique world and to play with the innate, magical power of objects to influence the mood of the users.

La Pluie candle is a true melding of two aesthetics: the white opaline glass synonymous with the Maison Balzac olfactory experience, and the undulating form of Sophie Lou’s cult favorite ripple cup coming together to house this invigorating perfume with notes of petitgrain, white musk and black pepper.
