Esterel Scented Matches
Brightness of Mimosa
Imported from Australia by British botanists at the turn of the 19th Century, mimosa has since become the Cote d’Azur’s floret: the solar bushes now blossom on the hillsides of the Esterel Massif.
A wild vegetal composition, the Estérel perfume is as vibrant and delicate as the mimosa’s clusters.
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.
