"Uniting what is best in nature and in man"
FRANC 1884 is inspired by a passion for travel and the warm welcomes we've received wherever the road has taken us. The memories, the sounds and the scents of every special place we've visited. Those wonderful experiences have been typified by the fragrances offered to us as a welcoming gift at every port-of-call.
Fragrance is integral to our senses and experiences - the Lavender of Provence or the Oud of the Middle East. It's like an ethereal and fragrant map of the world. Our Lavender and Fragranced Wands and Orbs inspire the senses and immediately transport the recipient to far-off places. They are beyond just gifts. They are an expression of welcome, love and friendship that can be taken home and enjoyed.
THE STORY OF LAVENDER
Long ago young fiancées offered Coeurs de Lavande to add fragrance to their trousseau. Or stored in armoires or drawers to perfume the linens. The Lavender of Provence has touched the lives of so many lovers and friends. Still today it is the welcoming scent of calm, warmth and happiness.
FRANC 1884 is dedicated to the home and the art de vivre. It's a primal response to the desire for memories, fragrance, nature and elegance.
Our Wands and Orbs will awaken your senses. Visual and tactile with a fragrance that lasts for many years. Our objets de art are hand-made by artisans using the finest ingredients and with a unique savoir-faire.
SALON DES ARTISANS
We have mastered a unique process to guarantee the very best, hand-made quality. The process begins by growing and selecting the very best Lavender grown at the right altitude. Our farmers are the very first to cultivate and harvest Lavender like grapes for Champagne or fine wine. They harvest at the right time so the Lavender doesn't get too much sun. It's this perfect timing that optimises the fragrance of the essential oils. It is this approach and process that makes FRANC 1884 unique around the world.
We use only the very best materials, sourcing ribbons from the finest producers in St. Etienne (the world capital of ribbons France). We are proud to manufacture under quality control system so we deliver sheer beauty of our Wands and Orbs.
