More about Rigaud
New modern packaging and chic new glass! Rigaud has been producing scented candles for more than half a century. Each candle is hand-poured and inspected to insure a premium quality product. When burning, the wax liquefies rapidly, with a quick and mighty diffusion of the fragrance. Rigaud candles burn evenly, without leaving any deposit on the glass and they do not tunnel, unlike hard wax candles.
The unique soft patented wax formula for Rigaud candles has a longer burning capacity than other candles, melting and re-solidifying to look as beautiful after multiple uses as when it first came out of the box. Rigaud is the environmental fragrance par excellence, known worldwide and appreciated by connoisseurs such as the Prince of Whales, Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Taylor, Elton John and Donnatella Versace.
PARFUMS RIGAUD is one of the oldest perfumers and dates back to the early 19th century when King Louis XVIII of France signed a decree giving the sole rights to the RIGAUD family for the manufacturing of a scented Macassar oil.
In 1852, JBF RIGAUD revolutionized the perfumery world by introducing new fragrances into the traditional French perfumery. His creative genius extended to the hitherto unknown field of marketing and in 1868 he conquered the American market where he won the leading place thanks to large scale promotional investment.
Subsequently, the RIGAUD family developed luxury scents such as KANANGA, UN AIRE EMBAUME, VERS LA JOIE, PARFUM TENDRE, etc.......and by the turn of the century had become the leading perfumers of the time.
The RIGAUD candle was created in 1950 by Madame RIGAUD who had the original idea of opening a House Gift shop, offering, of course, environmental fragrances. This is how the RIGAUD candle was born.
RIGAUD's great achievement was to combine successfully in a candle, fragrance and wax which, when burning, released the wonderful RIGAUD scents. They are also, the only candles in the world with a long burning capacity. The Standard and Recharge burns for 50 hours, where as, the Demi and Mini burn for 25 hours and 12 hours respectively. RIGAUD is the environmental fragrance par excellence, known worldwide and appreciated by connoisseurs such as the Prince of Wales, Julia Roberts, Liz Taylor, Elton John, Donnatella Versace,Aaron Spelling, Carly Simon, Julie Andrews, and the late Frank Sinatra. The White House became a place filled with the wonderful Cypres candle, as Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy brought them into the world of JFK.
