This month we welcome the world-renowned candle house Cire Trudon to the store.
Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest candle manufacturer in the world and each votive is still dripped and made by hand. Referencing its rich history, the brand creates enchanting scents inspired by biblical passages, kings, revolutionaries and Château de Versailles - where it once provided light for the courts of Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette.
The candles are manufactured with their unique blend of waxes at the Trudon factory in Normandy. The wicks are 100% cotton and are adapted specifically to each fragrance according the their burn characteristics. The one-of-a-kind glass vessel is made by artisans in Vinci, Tuscany and no two glasses are the same. The beautiful gold emblem on the candles is made by one of France's oldest champagne houses and is inspired by a bas relief found at the old Royal Wax Manufacture which used to belong to the Trudon family. Situated in Antony, near Paris, it now belongs to the Church. Nowadays the domain hosts the nuns of the Saint-Joseph de Cluny congregation.
We have our first delivery of the classic candles, together with a selection of the beautiful room sprays, in store now and we expect more stock at the end of the month.
