In 1643 a salesman named Claude Trudon arrived in Paris and became the owner of a store in Rue Saint-Honoré supplying groceries and candles for lighting homes in the parish. On the eve of Louis XIV’s reign, Trudon created a small family manufacturing business that was to carry his name forward and make the fortune of his heirs. His son Jacques entered the court of Versailles in 1687, as apothecary distiller of Marie-Thérèse, wife of the King.
In 1737, Hierosme Trudon purchased the most famous wax factories of the era from the official wax provider to King Louis XV. Maison Trudon grew and began supplying the French court and the most important churches.
As Napoleon’s wax producer during the Empire, the company survived the arrival of domestic lighting continuing to prosper on the strength of its quality, creativity and style.
Centuries of experience and unrivalled know-how and the ability to adapt to changing times has made Cire Trudon one of the most talented and innovative wax producers in the world. Each Trudon candle is made from the finest quality vegetal materials – soya and copra. The candlewicks are made from pure cotton and no artificial substances, metals or pesticides are used at any stage in the process.
