AN INSPIRATIONAL SCENT
Exuding a chorus of feminine and masculine aromas, the Madeleine scented candle from historic wax manufacturers, Cire Trudon, receives its name from Madeleine de Maupin: a daring, 17th-century dissident who counted skilled horsewoman, fencer and performer with the Paris Opéra amongst her legendary accomplishments.
Expect a luxurious, smoke-free burn time of 55 to 60 hours with the Madeleine, which dresses fragrances of lavender, iris, jasmine and rose with leather, tobacco and patchouli. Preserving the 375-year old brand’s time-honoured skills, the perfectly white wax candle has been hand-dripped in Normandy.
A Tuscany-made, hand-blown, green glass vessel houses the candle; inspired by the shape of champagne bottles, it’s perfected with Cire Trudon’s signature gold plaque and is presented within a stunning presentation box.
