Manufactured at their workshop in Normandy, Trudon’s classic candles are crafted using unrivalled know-how inherited from master candle makers. Each of the glass vessels are unique, hand blown in Tuscany, their shape inspired by the champagne bucket. Using high-quality vegetal waxes and cotton wicks (each differently shaped so as to best showcase the fine fragrance of each candle) the classic candles are timeless objects that combine history, expert craftsmanship and luxe home fragrance.

REGGIO
Part of Cire Trudon’s Belles Matières Collection, a geographic fragrant odyssey. The collection travels back to the origins of rare perfumes: it delves into the rich hours of botanical discoveries and reveals the genesis of grand olfactory adventures.
Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea. Facing the Messina Strait, it sculpts the Calabrian landscape without a touch of bitterness. The mandarin’s softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar.

HOW IT SMELLS
Reggio is bright, crisp as fresh as you would imagine a mandarin should smell. A slightly sweet juiciness comes forth, yet once burning this scent has a remarkable depth to it; an almost woody and earthy base grounds the sparkling citrus notes perfectly.

LORE LOVES
We love how uplifting citrus scents are – especially in your space. Reggio is such a happy scent that transports you to the glorious coastline of Italy on a beautiful summer getaway. It has the perfect sharp/sweet balance with a depth, almost like an earthy aquatic note as you smell the sea and the citrus coming together.

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.
