This line of J.Herbin wax is Old World traditional, it is
not designed to withstand the postal process.
We highly recommend this gorgeous wax for use with hand delivered items, gift wrap, certificates, or to create a seal which will crack upon bending.
If you would like to use a J.Herbin wax for mailing,
we suggest their Supple Wax & Pearlescent Wax lines.
As this security wax is sensitive to shock,
the batons may crack during shipment from France.
If the batons break into pieces,
our melting spoon can easily hold small bits for melting over a flame.
J. Herbin Cire Banque is the standard in sealing waxes, and
has remained unchanged since 1670.
Generations of remarkable people, from Louis XIV to Coco Chanel, have used this traditional sealing wax, and it is well known around the world as one of the highest quality sealing waxes ever made.
J. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax.
His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.
Then as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling.
J. Herbin has supplied Chanel from its beginning with wax used for finishing touches on their perfume bottles.
