For its 380th anniversary, Trudon dives back into history and launches a new collection named Tuileries: the new scent hints back at the French heritage and the countless stories it holds.
The Tuileries collection finds its inspiration in a rare document kept at the French National Archives: the Gazette des Atours de la Reine. In what seems like an ordinary notebook, Countess Geneviève d’Ossun – a French courtier who served as lady-in-waiting and first maid of honor to Marie Antoinette – gathered many fabric samples used to tailor the sovereigns’ many dresses and royal outfits.
The fragrance was conceived as an homage to the rose, the Queen’s favorite flower throughout her life.

The wax formulas of the Trudon candles are the fruit of specific developments which are the source of its exceptional olfactory and burning qualities. When correctly taken care of, no smoke leaves a Trudon candle and no wax is left on the sides of the glass. The wicks are made of cotton. One can find many types of wicks, characterized by their weaving and their diameter. The wicks are chosen depending on the shape and size of the glasses, as well as the burning characteristics of each candle. The emblem is inspired by a bas relief found at the old Royal Wax Manufacture which used to belong to the Trudon family. Situated in Antony, near Paris, it now belongs to the Church. Nowadays the domain hosts the nuns of the Saint-Joseph de Cluny congregation. Each glass is unique and hand-crafted in Tuscany. Their shape is inspired by champagne buckets.
Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest candle manufacturer in the world and each votive is still dripped and made by hand. Referencing its rich and storied history, the brand creates enchanting scents inspired by biblical passages, kings, revolutionaries, and the Château de Versailles – where it once provided light for the courts of Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette.
