Extremely feminine – bathed in light, and gentle floral freshness. The young, white flowers in full bloom are blended with sensual balms. Elae unfolds like a bouquet of white petals with woody notes, filled with warmth and tenderness. Inspired by Diana, Goddess of the hunt. Revered as the goddess of both the wild woodlands, and also the more civilised countryside, Diana is goddess of both civilisation and the wild. Of proud descent, Elae is embedded, through her Latin name, with the protective aura of Diana. A clear and romantic evocation of faraway lands that need to be explored and conquered, Elae is fragrant with flowers yet bears a narcotic sensuality. Elae unfolds like a transparent floral perfume with light notes that float effortlessly through nature.

HOW IT WEARS
Trudon’s perfumes always offer such strength on the skin, and this is no exception. A bold white floral hit that softens over time, whilst remaining feminine from opening to end. We get the White Floral hit with almost a clean, yet earthy (and animalic) Musk tone coming through and grounding this scent for 6 – 8 hours wear on the skin.
Elae is the epitome of a floral done to perfection. We love how it’s simple in its notes, but so powerful in its punch. No flower has been overpowered by another, and they all get their time on the skin. An incredibly well balanced white floral, perfect for any special occasion.
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.
