The story of Elixir of Life
Alchimists have an ultimate purpose : finding the perfect recipe to create the Elixir of life. This magic potion is made from the philosopher’s stone. It is said this bottle was made by Nicolas Flamel, the famous French alchimist. It is supposed to be a personal reserve that he lost because he had hidden it too well. The phial was found in Paris at the end of the 19th century in a bric-a-brac.
La Loupiote – veilleuses féeriques is a shop that was created in 2020 by the artist “La Loupiote”, a word which has a double meaning in French.
It refers to a small light or a small child. How fitting this name is for someone who creates night-lights in the shapes of small fairy houses !
These magical small lamps which are inspired by the enchanting world of the Faery Folk illuminate the eyes of young and old people alike. The fairy houses glimmer in a sweet light and bring a touch a dream at night fall in the room they decorate, as well as they soothe the ones who are afraid of the dark.
All of the night-lights are unique and handmade with many details, much care and patience. Each of them tells an authentic story and invites you into their worlds – they seem to come all the way from a mossy undergrowth, a flowery meadow, a haunted castle ou even on old library. One holds into their hands a piece of an intimate dream handmade in the workshop just for you.
