    Episode 10 Maison Balzac: Elise Pioch Balzac

    When it comes to memories, there is nothing stronger than scent to transport you to a time or place. This is the philosophy that runs through the candles of Maison Balzac. Their effortlessly chic founder, Elise Pioch Balzac, wove a tale for us, taking us back to her childhood through every candle. From the first glass of orange juice in the morning to walking us through her home with her grandmother sitting in the living room, we were transfixed by this story teller, hanging onto every word. Beautiful, personal and one of a kind, that's the Maison Balzac experience. We talk with Elise about why the art of gifting is so important and how these items complete the story of your home. From the House of Style and Elise, we wish you a joyeux noel!
