Trudon’s room sprays are available in their most iconic signature scents, housed in beautiful hand-made glass bottles from Tuscany. Each bottle comes with the option of a regular atomiser, or if you want something a little more opulent, a gold puffer atomiser.
The room sprays can simply be spritzed in the air around your space – and if you already have one of your Cire Trudon candles burning, they accentuate and elongate the scent throw. They can also be spritzed on your soft furnishings to give your couch, cushions and curtains a breathtaking aroma.
ABD EL KADER
Abd el Kader was a politician, military leader, writer, poet and philosopher who founded the Algerian state. Born in 1808 near the town of Mascara, Algeria, he was said to be an enlightened and cultural man. This candle is inspired by the Mascara coastline and the scent of Abd el Kader’s favourite drink, Moroccan mint tea. Wafting gently through the air mingling with tobacco and tea – a light and refreshing Moroccan mint tea scent to cool the senses.

HOW IT SMELLS
Abd el Kader has a magnificent blend of crisp fresh mint and smooth, clean tea that stands out. The slight sparkle of spice creates a burst of brightness while the creamy depth ensures that Abd el Kader is strong and rounded.
We love Abd el Kader to really freshen up a space. It has a herbaceous cleanliness to it that feels purifying without being sterile. The Moroccan mint is both uplifting and refreshing – a great palette cleanser – making this scent the most perfect accompaniment to any dinner party!
ABOUT THE BRAND
Founded in 1643, Trudon is the oldest wax manufacturer in the world.
In 1640s Paris, Claude Trudon, a convenience store owner, began to make tapered candles with a new methodology he had developed, utilising a special blend of beeswax and vegetable wax. His high-quality candles rapidly gained popularity, as they didn’t warp, smoke or splutter, and therefore didn’t cause fires!
In 1702, Trudon opened a factory so that their highly sought-after candles could be manufactured on a larger scale. Before long, their secret wax formula (still used today!) attracted the attention of the Crown. The house of Trudon became the candle provider to the Royal Court of Louis XIV, as well as many of the great churches of France. Louis XIV was so impressed with their candles that he issued a seal of approval with his official family crest. This crest can now be seen affixed to every Trudon product, with the addition of the motto “Deo regique laborant”, which means: “they (the bees) work for God and the King”, a nod to the creature that made their successful wax formula possible!
By the mid-17th century, Trudon had become the largest wax manufacturer in France. As candle makers to the Royal Court, Trudon were commissioned to make candles for many French icons – from Louis XIV to Marie Antoinette to Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon actually commissioned Trudon to make a candle for the birth of his son – rumoured to be the only gift he ever gave him – a black candle made in his likeness, adorned in gold.
Fast forward to 2007 when the house took the name Trudon and became the leading specialist in manufacturing perfumed candles. All their candles are still hand-made, using traditional production methods akin to those Claude Trudon would have used in the 1600s. In their Normandy factory, each candle is hand-poured into hand-blown vessels from Tuscany. Today, Trudon has extended their range to a line of genderless perfumes in addition to their variety of options for luxuriously fragrancing your space.
