Claude Trudon opened his candle making boutique in 1643, lighting the neighborhoods of Paris. This humble beginning was only the start to Trudon’s success, as cathedrals and French royals took notice of his high-quality candles. Extensively renowned for their expertise, Trudon’s company made candling a respected art and a legacy that has survived to the modern day.
Honoring the tradition of their predecessors, Cire Trudon candles are still dripped and made by hand, contained by hand-blown vessels. Each candle has a story to tell with its unique scent rich in history. The candles are the pinnacle of luxury as they are smokeless and crafted with a perfected vegetable based wax.
In 2007, the company took the name Cire Trudon and became a specialist in manufacturing perfumed candles. Today they enlist well-known “noses” to create perfumes for the stories they wish to tell, perpetuating luxury manufacturing and the skills of founder Claude Trudon.
