A POWERFUL CHARACTER
Every luxurious wax creation from historic candle-makers, Cire Trudon, possesses a distinct personality. In this case, the life and character of Abd El Kader provide the inspiration – a military, political and philosophical polymath who led the struggle against the colonial invasion of Algeria in the mid-19th century.
SCENTS OF ALGERIA
The candle’s mesmerising fragrance follows a gust of freedom blowing from El Kader’s birthplace, Mascara, across Algeria, collecting the green scents of fresh mint, the heat of resistance, ginger’s hot and peppered air and the perfume of tea and tobacco from the Ouled Naïl tribe.
Preserving the skills of its 17th-century founder, Claude Trudon, Cire Trudon hand-crafts each coveted candle in Normandy, while the unique glasses – inspired by champagne buckets and stamped with the brand’s signature gold plaque – are artisanally made in Italy’s Tuscany region.
