CIRE TRUDON CANDLE 800g Gloria Christmas 2022
This year, Trudon celebrates Christmas with a collection of charms that calls for shared, festive moments, and countless wishes.
The idea of charms and personalised bracelets - which inspired the collection - dates back centuries: charms became an elegant accessory under Queen Victoria, who wore bracelets complete with many small medallions bearing family portraits. In the 1950s, Hollywood celebrities, actresses and chic women turned charms into a stylish and fashionable accessory.
A perfect hint at Christmas celebrations, Trudon’s charms bring a welcome playfulness under the tree: a clover, a sparrow, a shining star, a game of cards or a pair angel wings, the precious symbols are applied in 24-carat hot gold and they suggest good luck, convey many happy wishes.
Celebrating this luminous momentum, the scented candle Gloria warms the room with the scent of firewood – composed of notes of Indonesian Patchouli, Haitian Vetiver and cedarwood. Wrapped around it are spicy notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, and a hint of citruses.

In 1643 a salesman named Claude Trudon arrived in Paris and became the owner of a store in Rue Saint-Honoré. He was a grocer but also a wax merchant and supplied his customers with candles for lighting their homes and for the parish. On the eve of Louis XIV's reign, Trudon thus created a small family manufacturing business that was to carry his name forward and make the fortune of his heirs. His son Jacques also became a shopkeeper and wax producer and entered the court of Versailles in 1687, as apothecary distiller of Marie-Thérèse, wife of the King. In the 18th century, in 1737, Hierosme Trudon purchased the most famous wax factories of the era from the official wax provider to King Louis XV. Trudon grew and began supplying the French court and the most important churches. The Trudon company supplied Versailles until the very end of the monarchy. As Napoleon's wax producer during the Empire, the company survived the arrival of domestic lighting and the birth of the "electric revolution" continuing to prosper. Trudon continued its work throughout the centuries, without ever interrupting its activity, particularly through the making of traditional candles and perfumed candles for the greatest names. It is now the oldest and most prestigious wax manufacturer in the world.
