Cire Trudon Candles
Cire Trudon Candles
Founded in 1643 by Claude Trudon, Paris-based Maison de Cire Trudon was the official supplier to the royal court of Louis XIV at Versailles and is notable as the oldest wax-producing factory and the oldest candle manufacturer in the world producing the world's most prestigious candles of the highest quality. Made with centuries-long experience and creating enchanting scents, they continue to innovate, evidenced by their recent citation from Greenpeace for being free of any harmful substance, entirely biodegradable and offering a smoke-free burn.
Cire Trudon candles are created with a unique mix of palm, rice, soy and copra oils. The wicks are made of pure cotton. No heavy metals or pesticides are included in the composition of the candles. Biodegradable and allergen free, Cire Trudon candles respect the environment. The wax is elegantly housed in a hand-blown glass vessel created by artisans in Vinci, Italy, and housed individually in Cire Trudon's signature blue-green box.

The following Cire Trudon scents have been selected from our collection highlighting those that are most ideal for Her. We also have a collection of scents for Him.
Cire Trudon's Joséphine candle celebrates the flowers adored by Napoleon's first wife – it combines robust Turkish Rose with sweet Egyptian Jasmine and delicate Chinese Camellia. This sophisticated floral scent is balanced with a warm and woody base of Indonesian Sandalwood and aromatic White Musk. It's housed in a hand-blown vessel complete with the brand's signature gold plaque.
The Odalisque scent is wrapped in citrus and wood barks, where the orange blossom "weaves a painter’s dream from which escapes the pale curl of smoke from a narghile. Like an orientalist painting, furiously romantic, the vigorous scent of the wild juniper and the solar splinter of citrus fruits spring out like a thin steel blade in silky, subtle shadow of vanilla".
Cire Trudon's most desired scent, Abd el Kader, is pleasing for both men and women and described as a "gust of freedom blowing from the Mascara coast and the mountains picks up on its way the green scents of fresh mint, the rashness of fights, ginger’s hot and peppered air and the perfume of tea".
Solis Rex is inspired by the elaborate parquetry of Château de Versailles’s famous Hall of Mirrors, this regal perfume radiates vapors of wax, candelabra and palace. A sumptuous trail of incense weaves through a tapestry of coniferous trees, cut with solar rays of citrus fruits.
