CIRE TRUDON CANDLE 800g Fir - Holiday 2023
For the festive season, Trudon lights up even brighter as it celebrates its 380th anniversary.
Composed of four distinctive perfumes, each scented candle shines bold, glorified with golden rays that echo both the solar power of the Sun King and the rising importance of astronomy as a science.
Crafted with care and a unique savoir-faire, the colourful glasses – blue for Fir – are adorned with gold leaf on the inside: shining through by transparency, a halo of golden beams surrounds a metalised Trudon emblem.
Hints of myrrh and incense absolute bring depth to the perfume’s head notes - Siberian pine and fir tree. The Fir scented candle welcomes the olfactory strength and very essence of the Christmas tree.

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.
