Madurai Scented Matches by Trudon


Cire Trudon scented matches are an essential part of the ritual. In one swift strike, the wick of the match is lit and gives life to light.

Delicately perfumed with the splendour of Indian jasmine, these Madurai matches sign the prologue for some of the stories behind the candles.

Elegant, long and delicate, asleep in their illustrated boxes, they patiently wait for their destiny. 

If the box is left slightly open, they will slightly scent a drawer, a cupboard or a study.

The Story

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.
