Cire Trudon was founded in 1643 in Paris when a grocer named Trudon started selling candles he produced and developed. His clients included churches and cathedrals and later royalty including Marie Antoinette and Napoleon. One of my favorite candles is their Trianon scent. Maison Trudon later made candles for Hermes, Guerlain and Dior. In 2007, Ramdane Touhami took over the company and has carried on the tradition of "producing candles of the best quality according to time honored traditions."
I suppose you could still buy the candles in Paris but it's nice to know that when you run out, you can pop downtown for more. Happy Shopping!
