Description & Details
Trudon Ernesto (Leather & Tobacco) Alabaster Candle takes place in a hotel in Havana. Sizzling under the stubborn sun of the Revolution, fierce overtones of leather and tobacco meddle with resolution the waxy silence of wood. Breaking out of the cool dimness, sly grimaces emerge, framed by the smoke of cigars and the barrels of guns. Fragrance Notes: Head: rum, grapefruit, bergamot. Heart: clove, oakwood, patchouli, labdanum. Bottom: tobacco, moss, leather, amber.
Trudon's delicate alabaster not only replaces the traditional green-glass but creates a sculptural object complete with a matching top.
Praised since Antiquity by Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, alabaster is a soft stone: its milky aspect ideally filters light. Countless artefacts, objects and sculptures carved out of alabaster are held in museums around the globe. All symbolize elegance, finesse and immaculate whiteness. In ancient Greece, alabaster also coined the name of a vase without handles that contained perfume (αλάϐαστρος / alabastros).
Sculpted in Spain out of a single block, the new containers and matching tops are one-of-a-kind: the alabaster’s veins that run on the surface are unique by essence. Minimal and aesthetic, a gold metallic label further recalls the manufacture’s history.
Glorified by the candle’s flame, the translucent alabaster welcomes a halo of light: with its white mineral tops, The Alabaster range of candles transforms into a unique interior accessory.
