Cire Trudon is the oldest candlemaker in the world. Founded by the Trudon family, it has provided candles to France’s cathedrals and nobility since 1643. Most famously, the Trudons supplied all the candles of Versailles on a daily basis, serving the Sun King, Louis XIV, during his reign. Lighting up the hallways and boudoirs of the monarchy, Cire Trudon’s flames flickered in both Versailles and the Imperial Court during Napoleon’s reign. Thanks to the Sun King, this candle company managed to survive not only the French Revolution, but also the miracle of electricity and is still around today. The Paris-based brand maintains a serious cult following of A-listers and designers and is the epitome of luxury when it comes to candles, fragrance and giftware.
