Why Maison Shiiba?
"Many people ask us where the name Maison Shiiba comes from.
This is my grandmother's name, an extraordinary woman, a true pillar of the house. She fought for her place and was never satisfied with the status quo. A feminist before her time, she fought many battles with her words and determination, she was an inspiration and a light to me. »
- Hamdi, co-founder.
A concept that is out of the ordinary
Believing in the power of positive vibrations and the power of conversation, the founders of Maison Shiiba are going to take their two passions to the extreme by implanting a personalized brass amulet within the candle. This amulet appears as the candle burns and can be used as a keychain.
In creating this concept, the founders decided to develop 2 options:
– The mantra:
This one is a message to be reread daily to give yourself motivation, it will also remind you how beautiful life is.
– The personalized message:
Through this concept Maison Shiiba offers you the opportunity to transcribe the essence of a memory or a sweet word to convey your emotion.
About the founders
Elise & Hamdi, the founders of Maison Shiiba, are an entrepreneurial couple. Coming from fashion & tourism marketing, they unite their skills to create this brand with a unique concept. Their professions influence their visions but also their strategies. The concept came from Elise who is a "candle addict" and Hamdi for the love of words. Strong human connections are at the heart of their development. The fusion of the two gives birth to Maison Shiiba Candles in 2019. Their goal is to shake up the codes of the candle to get out of the ordinary.
Passionate, charismatic. Hamdi is a lover of words and travel. A true citizen of the world, his numerous crossings have allowed him to develop a devouring passion for the scents and memories that this brings back.
"Very early on, I collected samples and spent hours feeling them, memorizing them, cataloguing them. The notes, chords, and compositions fed my curiosity. »
Hamdi is a romantic/perfectionist, for him scents are bridges to carry notes that awaken emotions, passions and memories.
He is fully aware that scents have the power to change a life, to transform an encounter, to make it unforgettable. That's why he composes them with special attention.
The Creation Process
‘‘ The creations of our candles often have the same pattern.
It always starts with a memory, mainly a place (travel, a little bit of childhood). From there, an olfactory family comes to mind influencing our first notes. Finally we work on the mosaic of notes to create a perfect fusion, that of Maison Shiiba ... Music has an important place in the creation’’
- Hamdi, co-founder
The goal is to create an atmosphere conducive to sensory travel, awaken your memories and share them around this flame. Don't forget, the sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses, in fact the memory oflactive has a real power of reminiscence. It is in this sense that Maison Shiiba wishes to transport you.

Zero Waste Goal
Maison Shiiba is committed to creating products that have a small ecological footprint.
Moreover, the brand reuses most of the packaging coming from suppliers, for packaging and protection during deliveries. This is a way, on our scale, to do up-cycling and thus to reduce single-use products.
« Les Uns-parfaits » is a collection built in this approach by reusing pots that have experienced some adventures during their journey.
The pots in our collections have been designed to be reused by our customers and can be reused endlessly: plant pot, pencil pot, brush pot, etc.
Let's consume better together!
