Cire Trudon - Carmelite
"The scent of ancient stone-walls, in the shade of cloisters and convents, this fragrance of fresh and mossy stone narrates the black and white silhouettes of nuns walking through the silence of a ritual mass. Under the light of church candles and psalmody, Carmélite calls on the peace of souls and the midst of times."
