Cire Trudon - Trianon
"The picking of hyacinth, roses, white flowers, wild herbs from the meadows and graminaceous plants, this bunch of flowers reminds us of an ideal nature, that of the Nouvelle Héloïse and the country life dreams of Marie Antoinette. Vibrating with the memory of a summer evening, when the warm, musky scent of torches fill the air, this scent is a homage to the Queen of taste, who inspired so many of candles at Maison Trudon."

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.
Marie-Antoinette, Archduchess of Austria, was the wife of Louis XVI, King of France, who gave her the Trianon estate in 1774, where she created an oasis of privacy that allowed her to escape the burdensome etiquette of Versailles. A devotee of theatre, comedies, games and dancing, she also loved nature, travelling, clothes and jewelry. Frivolous and spendthrift, but no less popular today, she remains the last sovereign to have held the title of Queen of France.
