Eteignoir Sphere

Details

Twin object designed by Pauline Deltour, Cire Trudon Eteignoirs are tools of precision: a thin brass hook reaches out to press the wick into the wax, without pinching it or smothering it. Under its grip, the candle’s flame vanishes, without smoke. Once raised back up and centred, the wax-coated wick can easily be lit up again. With this modern-day accessory, Cire Trudon daily ritual is once again reinvented.

Each Eteignoir is presented in an illustrated sliding box.

 

Trudon candles have represented the pinnacle of luxury for some 375-odd years. Founded in Paris in 1643, the brand supplied candles to the royal court of Louis XIV at Versailles and the Church of France, even through the French revolution. Every part of a Cire Trudon candle is just as regal today—each candle is scented with the thoughtful creations of world class perfumers, who work to develop each scent from the very first stage of selecting raw materials to the stage at which the wax is poured in the company’s Normandy factory into their elegant glass vessels from Vinci, a town in Northern Italy where they also produce bottles for Champagne.
