Established in 1643, Cire Trudon can count the former French royal court amongst its many admirers. This glorious gift set of three scented votive candles – presented in a beautifully gilded box – recalls the magnificence of Versailles during the 17th and 18th centuries through an olfactory prism of astounding aromas.
‘La Marquise’ – conjuring the rocaille decadence of the Madame de Pompadour’s boudoir – marries verbena and lemon with white flowers and roses. ‘Solis Rex’ summons the woody scent of the Château de Versailles’ magnificent Hall of Mirrors with a union of citrus, fir and incense. Finally, ‘Trianon’ presents a homage to Marie Antoinette – ‘the Queen of taste’ – expertly blending hyacinth and roses with white flowers and wild herbs.
Made with the finest, smoke-free wax, each coveted candle has been hand-dripped in Normandy, while their distinctive glass vessels (inspired by champagne bottles) have been hand-blown in Italy’s Tuscany region and perfected with Cire Trudon’s signature gold plaques.
