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.

Created as a special edition candle in collaboration with designer Giambattista Valli, Positano is inspired by the designer’s love of the small, picturesque village and indeed, the scents of Positano. The light scent of white heady flowers mingling underneath the warm Mediterranean sun. 
Perched above the Amalfi coast, the small village of Positano shines brightly under the Italian sun. White flowers bloom and gardenia, orange blossom, jasmine, magnolia, tuberose and lily combine in a delicate melody.

Top: Bergamot, Gardenia, Moroccan Neroli
Middle: Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Magnolia
Base: Peruvian Balsam, Lily, Tuberose

The 270g candles burn for approximately 55-60 hours. Please follow the instructions enclosed with your candle to get the most out of it. 

Positano smells like a glorious sunny day taking in all the scent of the blooming flowers and citrus in the air. We absolutely smell the gorgeous bouquet of white flowers in this scent, the lily note creates soft cleanliness while the jasmine and tuberose give a creaminess that is balanced by the crisp citrus. This is a really elegant floral composition… in Positano!

This candle makes us imagine waking up in a gorgeous clifftop villa in Positano, opening the windows and stepping out onto the balcony to take in the picturesque scenery of Positano and breath the delightfully scented air. Citrus and floral scents waft through the warm air as you slowly wake up, the perfect way to begin the day.

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.
