Founded in 1643 by Claude Trudon, Paris-based Maison de Cire Trudon was the official supplier to the royal court of Louis XIV at Versailles and is notable as the oldest wax-producing factory and the oldest candle manufacturer in the world producing the world's most prestigious candles of the highest quality. Made with centuries-long experience and creating enchanting scents, they continue to innovate, evidenced by their recent citation from Greenpeace for being free of any harmful substance, entirely biodegradable and offering a smoke-free burn.
Cire Trudon candles are created with a unique mix of palm, rice, soy and copra oils. The wicks are made of pure cotton. No heavy metals or pesticides are included in the composition of the candles. Biodegradable and allergen free, Cire Trudon candles respect the environment. The wax is elegantly housed in a hand-blown glass vessel created by artisans in Vinci, Italy, and housed individually in Cire Trudon's signature blue-green box.
