Well known by the wealthy, famous and nobility for their amazing scents, Cire Trudon, established in 1643, is the oldest, continuously operating candle manufacturer in the world. The family supplied candles to King Louis XIV, Louis VX and Louis XVI as well as Versailles and most of the great churches of France. The perfectly white, luxurious and long burning wax was the favorite of the court. The glass of each candle is unique and hand crafted in Tuscany, Italy. Their shape is inspired by champagne buckets.
Bartolome de Las Casas (1474-1566) discovered the “New World” on a journey taken with Christopher Columbus. Very modern for his era, it denounced the exploitation of human beings. In 1510, he was ordained as a Dominican priest in Sainto Domingo, where he would defend the Indian slaves and become the "guilty conscience of the conquistadors."
