Aphélie is a part of Trudon’s first fragrance collection – a scented ode to Royalty, Religion and Revolution. 

Aphélie is a fusion of nature and romanticism. Aphélie stands out in a unique manner: like an aphelion – the orbital point at which a celestial object is furthest from the sun – she lights up. Mysterious, Aphélie is connected to the cosmos: subject to the laws of attraction, she makes one with nature.

Top: Rose Essence, Green Ivy

Antoine Lie

Aphélie opens with a gorgeous burst of juicy roses, mingling with a green crisp tone that creates both freshness and depth immediately. Shortly the scent of blackcurrant enters with a slight sweetness, which is tempered by the accompanying moss. Ultimately Aphélie settles as a green fragrance with a burst of blackcurrant bud shining through, ensuring there is a beautiful balance between light and dark.

Aphélie takes us well and truly into nature. Trudon and Antoine Lie have truly succeeded in the interpretation of this fragrance and the way that it transports the wearer to the middle of a forest. A lustrous and magical forest at night filled with wild, red roses and brambles of berries amongst the greenery. If this fragrance were a colour it would be a lush, rich green mingling with a deep, blood red, yet these colours are slightly muted as they are seen at night under the light of a full moon. There is something mysterious about this scent, like being alone in nature in the middle of the night. Calming and grounding, yet with an air of intrigue.

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.
