A family adventure

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.

Our products and commitments

Candles made in Brittany

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?

Our candles are made with a blend of very high quality vegetable and mineral waxes exclusively coming from the European Union. 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. 

 

The fragrances ?

Our fragrances are made in France in the region of Grasse and in Switzerland. They are in compliance 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).

The founder’s words

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
