A collaboration between ARRETZZO X J.U.S

To enrich our candle collection, we've created a unique handcrafted candle holder using the Terrazzo technique. This technique revitalizes three perfume bottles that were discarded due to defects.


Notwithstanding meticulous efforts in the production of perfume bottles, approximately 10% of them are deemed unsuitable due to impurities in the glass, lacquering imperfections, or insufficient brilliance. Acknowledging its steadfast dedication to upcycling since its establishment, La Maison J.U.S has resolved to repurpose these unused containers through the innovative application of the Terrazzo technique.

Thierry de Baschmakoff, driven by a fervor for colors, materials, and the concept of upcycling, found a profound enthusiasm for the ancient essence of terrazzo.

Léandre Carbonneaux, a meticulous French artisan, upholds and carries forward this time-honored tradition with exacting precision.

Collaboratively, they conceived a candle holder boasting refined contours and opulent, multihued inclusions. Each holder embodies a solid block of terrazzo, juxtaposing raw and polished textures, radiating vibrant luminosity. Every piece stands as a singular creation, intertwining fragments from three distinct J.U.S perfume bottles.
