Cire Trudon

    Having been in business since 1643, it’s fair to say that Cire Trudon knows all there is to know about candles. Their past clients have even included Napoleon and Marie Antoinette (the store sells special candles which are shaped into busts of each one). Made using traditional vegetal wax, the candles are more environmentally friendly than many of today’s paraffin versions, and each different scent is as delicate and complex as a luxury perfume. Walking into Cire Trudon is like entering an Edwardian drawing room, with scented candles elegantly displayed under bell jars on top of an antique dresser. Venture through the corridor and a giant wax torso reclines against a banister, while the far room displays other merchandise, such as room fragrance sprays in beautiful glass atomizers, larger versions of the classic scented candles and numerous taper candles in a kaleidoscope of colors. A small till discreetly placed in a corner is the only indication that this is a shop instead of some exquisite shrine to days gone by.Show lessRead more
