“Spark a Scandle”

A Mini-You in Wax


3D printing pioneers - iMakr, in partnership with Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche – The Paris Luxury Department Store, is launching “Scandles” – The Candle Mini-You.  Using 3D Scanning and 3D Printing technology, iMakr will be creating bespoke, one-of-a-kind candles from a 3D printed version of you.


From the 1st of November 2014, customers will be able  enter into a custom built, highly specialised scanning booth located at Le Bon Marche Store in Central Paris, where their likeness will be digitally captured in 3 dimensions.

This digital file will be sent to the iMakr Store in London where a specialised 3D printer will print the subject in question.  A silicone mould will then be cast from the printed model and premium quality, all natural candle wax will be used to create the final product from this mould – with options available for different colours and scents. The bust will then be delivered to the customer’s address or can be collected directly from Le Bon Marche at 24 Rue de Sèvres, Paris.

iMakr has innovated previously in this field, realising Mini-You’s first in full colour sandstone at Selfridges, and then chocolate at Harvey Nichols.  Now for the first time they are inviting you to celebrate the nature of transience with The Candle Mini-You.

This one of a kind product makes a truly unique gift this Christmas; surprise your loved ones this holiday season with a Scandle from iMakr and Le Bon Marche.

To book a session in the scanning booth please email or visit the Le Bon Marche Store.
