Cire Trudon, the oldest and most prestigious wax manufacturer still in active business in the world, was founded in France in 1643, on the eve of Louis XIV’s reign.
A salesman named Claude Trudon began a small, family-run business and went on to supply not only the country’s most glorious cathedrals but also the royal court of France, until the end of the monarchy. Napoleon’s wax producer during the Empire period, Cire Trudon never stopped innovating or prospering.
The 18 perfumed candles in the collection today are an invitation to experience the height of luxury — past and present. All Cire Trudon candles are free of any harmful substances and are made from pure vegetal wax poured into handcrafted green glass vessels, made in Italy.
