The Cire scented candle is an olfactory representation of the manufacture: symbolic, it blends emanations of warm wax and perfumes being crafted.
Reinterpreting Cire Trudon’s fundamental values – ancient savoir-faire and commitment to excellence – the scented candle reveals a unique perfume: behind the amber-coloured glass, a beeswax absolute. Bees and beeswax have always been at the heart of the manufacture’s History: since the 17th century, Cire Trudon’s motto is “Deo regique laborant”, which means: “they (the bees) work for God and the King”. 2019 marks a turning point for the Maison, as Cire Trudon decided to financially help the Orne Dark Bee Conservatory, with the partnership of the Perche Nature Park. 4 percent of all sales of the Maison’s Cire candle will go toward the saving of Orne Dark Bees.

HOW IT SMELLS
Cire is not an obvious ‘honey’ scent like we were expecting, it has more depth. It’s a rich, woody fragrance with a waxy honey-like scent that gently warms the fragrance without making it sweet at all – more of a complex wood/resins fragrance.
We love the bees – I mean, we are here because of the bees! So this ode to their important existence is so very important yet also a wonderful work of art. The scent does not need to be only for honey lovers at all as it is rich and compelling with incredible depth that you wouldn’t believe a candle can achieve!
