Balmain X Trudon - Candle

Olivier Rousteing, the Creative Director of Balmain, is a long-time fan of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle is a particular favorite, with Rousteing often relying on the scent for both his home and studio.

Building upon that longstanding relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses. The container and perfume reflect the distinctive savoir-faire and style of both Balmain and Trudon.

Paying homage to Balmain’s couture origins, the Trudon label has been printed in gold foil on black velvet, before being applied onto the glass. The meticulous creation process relies on an initial hand application of gold leaf upon the clear glass, before it is lacquered in black - resulting in many fine cracks, ensuring that each candle is truly unique. The distinctive Balmain and Trudon logos, printed in gold foil, decorate the top and sides of the black packaging.

The candle fragrance comes from an exclusive scent created by Emilie Bouge (Maison Robertet nose) in collaboration with Olivier Rousteing and Trudon.

Emilie Bouge has given Trudon’s iconic scent Ernesto, a floral and feminine twist. In addition to the leathery, Atlas cedarwood, gunpower and cigar notes, the new scent features the mysterious and distinguished addition of a black rose.

Top notes: Atlas Cedarwood, Javanese Nutmeg

Heart notes: Leather, Spices, Black Rose, Moss, Tobacco

Base notes: Patebonli, Rock Rose, Musk

 

Heritage

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.
