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 XV 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.
The Ottoman Empire (1299 to 1923) was succeeded by, among other things, the Republic of Turkey. At the height of its power, it stretched over three continents: all of Anatolia, the Armenian Highlands, the Balkans, the edges of the Black Sea, Syria, Mesopotamia, the Arabian peninsula and North Africa excluding Morocco.
