Cire Trudon - Pondechery
"Ginger with zests of citrus fruits and vetiver, Pondichéry exhales a green and fresh touch where floats the exotic sweetness of patchouli and the warmth of musk. Dreams of Asia with its unforgettable colors, its peculiar silks and porcelain, this is a journey to Indian and Far-Eastern trading posts and to the new fascination for exoticism."

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.
Pondicherry (“new village” in Tamil), is a city in southeast India that is widely known for its cotton weaving industry and paisley patterns. It became a part of French history in 1673 when the Compagnie des Indes bought a small coastal village from the Sultan of Bijapur that thus became the “flagship” trading post representing France's business interests in India.
