Scented candle – Sensuality of sandalwood
When Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines, New-Caledonia, in 1840, it was, then, unknown in Europe. By the end of the 19th Century, the noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree: named ‘candana’ in Sanskrit, or ‘sandal’ in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, it still billows today.

Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest wax-producing factory worldwide. It was the provider of the royal court of Louis XIV, as well as most of the great churches of France. Since the 17th Century, the gestures of the Maison Trudon candle makers polished a secret : the secret of this candle pulp whose combustion is perfect and the diffusion, remarkable. From pure cotton wicks, to the pure vegetable waxes, through the glass handmade in Italy, each candle is part of history.
