Ourika, sensual and spicy.
A newcomer in Cire Trudon’s Collection of Les Belles Matières, Ourika is a sensual escape, an exploration of iris’ spicy character.
Grown in fertile valleys and gardens since Antiquity, iris also played a role in the Egyptian mythology: highly symbolic, iris is associated to Horus, the falcon God that brings the sky and the earth together.
At the base of the High Atlas Mountains, the Ourika Valley is where it flourishes: iris thrives on sun and an essentially pure rural life.
La Belle Matière Ourika marries a floral head note composed of gardenia, rose and magnolia with the spicy notes of benzoin and pink peppercorns to highlight iris’ sensual and powdery nature.

Burn time: 55 to 65 hours.
In order to make the most of your candle, we 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.
