Reinterpreting Cire Trudon’s fundamental values - ancient savoir-faire and commitment to excellence - the scented candle reveals a unique perfume behind the amber-colored glass, a beeswax absolute. Bees and beeswax have always been at the heart of the Brand’s History. Since the 17th century, Cire Trudon’s motto has been “Deo regique laborant”, which means: “they (the bees) work for God and the King.”
2019 marks a turning point for the Maison, as Cire Trudon decided to financially help the Orne Dark Bee Conservatory, with the partnership of the Perche Nature Park. 4 percent of all sales of the Maison’s Cire candle will go toward the saving of Orne Dark Bees.

Burn time: 55 to 65 hours.
The Cire scented candle is an olfactory representation of the Cire Trudon Brand: symbolic, it blends emanations of warm wax and perfumes being crafted.
In order to make the most of your candle, they recommend burning it until the whole surface is liquid, in order to free the wick and ensure perfect burning when it is next used.
- Do not leave your candle to burn for more than three consecutive hours, in order to preserve its perfume.
- Leave it to cool down completely before using it again and remove the burnt part of the wick. To prevent any smoke when you put it out, dip the wick into the wax and take it out again immediately. Arrange it in the center, ready for re-lighting.
- Keep the candles away from children, flammable objects and fragile surfaces. Never leave them to burn unattended.
- Do not let the flame reach the bottom of your glass so that the glass does not get hot; leave 0.5 cm of wax at the bottom of the glass.

Throughout the 17th century, the manufacturer became the Royal Wax Manufacturer and official supplier in the French court, then to Napoléon Bonaparte. Cire Trudon received a Gold Medal during the 1889 Universal Exhibit as a reward for the outstanding quality of its candles and wax.
Trudon enlists well-known “noses” to create perfumes for the stories it wishes to tell. Each candle is still dripped and made by hand in its factory in Normandy, perpetuating a luxury manufacturing which helps perpetuates the skills of its founder, Claude Trudon.
