Details

When Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines, New-Caledonia, in 1840, it was, then, unknown in Europe. By the end of the 19th Century, the noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree: named ‘candana’ in Sanskrit, or ‘sandal’ in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, it still billows today, seamlessly embedded in the smoke of Asian incense.

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.
