A note of history

Albert I (1848-1922), is one of the most enlightened princes of his time.

He is nicknamed "the Learned Prince" or "the Navigator Prince" because of his abyssal love for science and especially for the oceans.

A true Jules Verne character, he conducted no less than 28 scientific campaigns, from Spitsbergen to the Azores and in 1910, he inaugurated the Oceanographic Museum.

Also passionate about prehistory, the Prince founded a museum of Anthropology in 1902, to exhibit his discoveries there.

A convinced humanist and pacifist, he dreams of participating in the improvement of the world: He creates the International Institute of Peace.

For him, progress must be at the service of man and this ideal of well-being for humanity does not prevent him from keeping a distance and sometimes being aware of the limits of industrial progress, by its possible attacks on environment and biodiversity.

Albert I undertook profound political, economic and social reforms.

The Prince is at the forefront of the avant-garde and brings Monaco into modernity: He endows the Principality with a Constitution, expands the port, creates a hospital, a high school, a library...

This multifaceted Prince, through his humanism, his patronage, his art of governing, his scientific curiosity and his pioneering awareness of environmental issues, greatly contributed to the influence of his country.


Le prince explorateur is a charismatic fragrance like a navigator in search of adventure. Built around an alliance between a particularly masculine accord of fern and a modernity brought by slightly marine woody notes, this fragrance is an invitation to travel, to discover... Spicier notes will reveal the adventurous and ambitious character of this fragrance.

Top notes: Elemi, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Green notes
Heart notes: Fern, Cardamom, Marine notes, Nutmeg
Base Notes: Cedar, Moss, Patchouli, Musk, Vetiver

Afin de profiter de votre bougie dans les meilleures conditions, laissez-la brûler la première fois jusqu’à ce que la totalité de la cire soit devenue liquide en surface. 

Ne laissez pas brûler votre bougie plus de 4 heures.

Ne laissez pas une bougie allumée sans surveillance. S’assurez que la surface sur laquelle est posée la bougie est plane et résistante à la chaleur. Gardez vos bougies hors d’atteinte des enfants, rideaux et animaux domestiques.

Après extinction de la bougie, coupez la mèche pour qu’elle mesure 0,5 cm maximum. Une mèche trop longue peut engendrer un brûlage non homogène ou une fumée noire. Si de la fumée apparaît, éteignez votre bougie, coupez le bout de la mèche et rallumez !

Si la mèche se désaxe, recentrez-la délicatement, lorsque la cire est encore fondue. 

Conservez votre bougie dans un endroit sec et tempéré, entre 15 et 25° C.


In order to actively contribute to the preservation of the environment, the box and the glass of the Monoïkos 1297 candle are reusable: table glass, whisky glass, pencil jar, small vase, storage for small objects, give free rein to your imagination to embellish your home!

To protect your glass, do not burn your candle to the end, always leave at least 0.5 centimeters of unmelted wax and to clean it, put it in the freezer for a few hours, the wax will then come off very easily.

All you have to do is wash the glass, wipe it and use it in a thousand and one ways !
