Monsillage et M3béton

Monsillage is dedicated to the creation of original scents. m3béton designs products in concrete, transforming it into a noble material. Two women, Isabelle Michaud and Claudia Croteau. Two companies. Two art forms. One, evanescent, unforgettable, like the soul of a city; the other, solid, strong and durable, a foundation for dreaming big.

Montréal à vue de nez is a handcrafted candle nestled in a concrete “heart.” Its different scents draw inspiration from the city’s olfactory heritage, evoking its religious, maritime, horticultural or urban history. Three defining dates, engraved in concrete, a material emblematic of modern Montréal, anchor this object in our history.
