Olim is a part of Trudon’s first fragrance collection – a scented ode to Royalty, Religion and Revolution. Olim (Latin for “once”) shines light on the evolution of royal power. This fragrance represents the vanity and emotion of a royal era. With powdery notes representing the beauty and purity mingled with the spice and resins reflecting the opulence and grandeur. Olim recalls the first four registers of the old Parliament of Paris, which included the texts and laws created by the King’s court in the years between 1254 – 1318 under different reigns, but particularly that of St Louie. This fragrance is nostalgic about the evolution of royal power and the decline of the 13th century French feudalism.

Top: Bergamot, Lavender, Anise
Middle: Patchouli, Cloves, Pink Pepper
Base: Benzoin, Myrrh, Musk

Olim opens with a burst of amber, the notes of Lavender and Anise are most prominent and it almost smells like fragrances of decades past. There is an old-world charm, a definite headiness to open. As Olim begins to settle there is a light powdery tone, and a freshness, perhaps the lightness of Patchouli. With some time, Olim completely changes into an incredibly spicy, resinous base that is warm and elegant on the skin lasting 6 – 8 hours.

We love the dry down of Olim. The Myrrh is the stand out for us in the dry down and that soft, slightly sweet resinous base is the kind of scent that we want to be enveloped in. The element of spice and resin actually take us to the quintessential Christmas scent of Europe – sweetly spiced, a hint of citrus and the warming and comforting scents of spice fill the cold, yet joyous air.

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.
