Cyrnos Scented Matches
In 1894, Empress Eugénie decided to have constructed one of the most beautiful villa of Cap Martin on the Côte d’Azur.
She named it Villa Cyrnos and created a semi-desert, mineral, contrasted and fragrant garden. Pines, the Cap’s typical trees, were planted as well as olive and fig trees. In this magnificent garden, the Empress welcomed the great names of an aging, nostalgic European aristocracy but also avant-garde artists and intellectuals.
Trudon keeps a little secret when it comes to manufacturing: candle wax made with the highest quality of natural wax produced from rice, soya and copra (coconut kernel), forming a unique mixture, to be blended with perfume for perfect candles that go on burning.
The candle wicks are made from pure cotton. The candles do not contain any substances on the Greenpeace OSPAR list. No heavy metals or pesticides are involved in their manufacturing and they are entirely biodegradable.
