Rekindle a memory, stimulate our imagination... Fragrance has the unique power to carry ourselves away.
Globetrotter, nature lover and inspired by the original idea of the olfactory travel, Norbert Hiblot and his wife founded Geodesis in 1996. Each fragrance evokes a plant, a flower, a fruit or a tree all associated to a region of our planet.
In 2017, Mathilde their eldest daughter joined them in the entrepreneurial adventure.
Geodesis has been renowned for its know-how that guarantees subtle fragrances and high quality products thanks to its close collaboration with renowned perfumers for more than twenty years.
Scented candles made in France
We have been specialised in the scented candles making for more than twenty years. Our candles are produced on our site in Vannes in the Morbihan department. We have a unique know-how and can guarantee the quality of our candles as they are made and controlled in-house.
Our products do not contain any substances of animal origin and no products are tested on animals.
What ingredients are used in the scented candles and reed diffusers?
So far, our candles were made with a blend of very high quality vegetable and mineral waxes exclusively coming from the European Union. Recently, we have developed a new collection of 100% vegetable candles with an innovative wax made of apricot kernel and coconut oils. We recall that the word "natural" is not relevant for waxes as they may all be qualified of natural. It is relevant for fragrances as they may be natural as opposed to synthetic.
The success of our brand relies on the quality, the longevity and the power of diffusion of our candles.
A recent study led by the ADEME (a public institution belonging to the french Ministry of Ecology) concluded that a normal use of scented candles is not harmful to the health, regardless of the wax type.
Our products are vegan as they do not contain any animal substances and they are not tested on animals (This being prohibited in France anyway).
What about the fragrances ?
Our fragrances are made in France in the region of Grasse and in Switzerland. They are compliant with the IFRA (International Fragrance Association) regarding the manufacturing rules of good practice. The sensitising elements they may contain are listed on our packagings in compliance with the CLP regulation in effect among the European Union. Sensitising elements are usually present in the raw materials that compose the fragrances of our candles.
Our wicks are made of cotton and their metal framework contains no lead (it has been forbidden in the EU for about 10 years).
As a child I was fascinated by the olfactory subtlety of Nature. During my stays in Corsica, I gathered samples of fragrant plants and brought them back home to prolong my holiday memories all along winter. These holidays as a child, then the trips around the world during a first life as a photographer, have nourished the marvelled eyes I have always had at Nature.
For 20 years, I have been led by the search for excellence, expressed with simplicity and sobriety, to offer a new collection of scented candles, reed diffusers and rooms sprays.
I wish you a wonderful trip full of dreams and emotions.
Norbert Hiblot, Geodesis' founder
