Révolution is a part of Trudon’s first fragrance collection – a scented ode to Royalty, Religion and Revolution. A smoky messenger of both a beginning and an end. The streets of Paris during the French Revolution, an odour of smoke and musket powder. Capturing a moment in history, intense emotions with smoke and fire, raw incense, leather and woods. Rage and intense emotions on the faces of people in the streets, houses ablaze, the cobblestone streets covered in oil, sweaty riders cascade through the towns robed in black leather. The revolution is afoot, yet there is an air of peace on the horizon. The soft swirl of incense fills the air, leaving hope and a knowing that the dust is beginning to settle.

Top: Elemi Resin, Angelica
Middle: Cedar, Patchouli, Papyrus
Base: Juniper, Incense, Labdanum, Opopanox

Smoky from opening to end, this is a masterpiece in the realm of smoky fragrances. Subtle enough to be worn often, but definitely noticeable for hours, almost like the scent of sitting next to an open fireplace in winter, the green notes of nature also wafting through.

As gunpowder fills the air, the green grassy tones come through, guiding us back into a world of clarity from the haze of gunpowder. Clear skies, a tinge of metal and earth linger around. The smokiness never dissipating, rather hanging around like a ghost of past, a memory you can’t quite fully escape. This is the moment a French solider shot a gun for the first time in the French revolution.

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.
