Cire Trudon – Prestige and Highest Quality

Posted by on Apr 10 2016 | cire trudon candles

Many candles claim to be high end candles, even though some are nothing more than designer products touted by celebrities. Cire Trudon Candles are truly high-end candles, crafted with an exquisite attention to detail and quality. If you don’t care about designer labels but always wasn’t truly the best of the best, these truly luxurious candles might be just what you have been looking for.

History of Cire Trudon

Cire TrudonThe history of Cire Trudon Candles begins back in 1643, when a merchant became a store owner in Paris, selling wax candles and groceries. The merchant, Trudon, eventually created a technique to create the best quality wax, and eventually his son Jacques became part of the Versailles court. Maison Trudon eventually became the Royal wax supplier, recognized for the high quality product, and continued to supply wax to Napoleon. Over the centuries, Maison Trudon has made candles for royalty, leaders, and, more recently, for design leaders such as Dior, Hermes, Guerlain, and others. Today, Cire Trudon is considered the oldest manufacturer of candles in French. All Cire Trudon are still made with the same perfected wax technique and are still recognized by those in the know as the highest quality candles.

Historic Wax

What sets Cire Trudon candles apart is the fact that they are made with a wax that has been perfected over many centuries. The wax is made from a wax paste which is made from vegetal matters, which is all-natural and allows for the best fragrances to be perfectly embedded in the wax. The unique wax blend also ensures that the candle burns cleanly and for a long time. Thanks to the special wax, Cire Trudon candles enjoy exceptional scent diffusion and cleaner burning. The paraffin-free wax made with copra, rice, pal, and soy oils ensure that the candle is less harmful than other candles laced with synthetic products and toxins. The natural waxes also ensure that the candles are more sustainable than synthetic candles. The pure cotton wicks and the fact that Cire Trudon candles contain no pesticides, heavy metals, or substances prohibited by OSPAR ensure that the candles are green and safe. Cire Trudon candles are also biodegradable.

Sensational Scents

Cire Trudon candles offer many sensational scents, including the Cire Trudon Abd el Kader (Moroccan Mint Tea) Candle, with notes of spearmint, lemon, blackcurrant, apple, ginger, clove, jasmine, and vanilla. The Cire Trudon Balmoral (Mist Soil & Meadows) Candle offers a very fresh scent, with notes of foliage, mint, freshly-mowed grass, freesia, tea, iris, musk, pinewood, and fresh sap. The Cire Trudon Carmélite (Old Mossy Walls) Candle is a very green fragrance, with notes of orange, armoise, rose, geranium, spices, iris, patchouli, sandal, and cedar.
