"Cire Trudon candles have stood the test of time, and are a beautiful touch of luxury to have in your home. Ernesto is a supremely blended smoky/woody/leathery scent, it’s just so well balanced, it’s hard for me to pick out individual notes. Would make a great gift, as I can’t imagine many people who wouldn’t enjoy this."


"Regal, rich and romantic - Ernesto is a real mood setter! The musky blend of leather and tobacco evokes lust. I imagine Hugh Hefner’s parlour, in its heyday, to be reminiscent of Ernesto. Ernesto is sure to captivate his or her senses in favour of spontaneity and imagination. Powerful and sexy, Ernesto will linger long after it has been lit - novices tread carefully."
