Trudon unveils a new range with white luminescent attributes: The Alabasters.
The delicate alabaster not only replaces the traditional green-glass but creates a sculptural object complete with a matching top. Comprising of three scented candles - Ernesto, Abd El Kader and newcomer Héméra – The Alabasters also introduce a new perfume: with an enveloping freshness, Héméra is rich with woody notes that emphasize its balmy, sensual character.
Praised since Antiquity by Greeks, Egyptians and Romans, alabaster is a soft stone: its milky aspect ideally filters light. Countless artefacts, objects and sculptures carved out of alabaster are held in museums around the globe. All symbolize elegance, finesse and immaculate whiteness. In ancient Greece, alabaster also coined the name of a vase without handles that contained perfume (αλάϐαστρος / alabastros).
Sculpted in Spain out of a single block, the new containers and matching tops are one-of-a-kind: the alabaster’s veins that run on the surface are unique by essence. Minimal and aesthetic, a gold metallic label further recalls the manufacture’s history.
The Alabasters are artisanally made in the province of Tarragona, in Spain. As the natural sensitivity of the stone makes it difficult to shape, the realization of each piece requires extreme care. And infinite patience… alabaster is drab when it is taken from the earth and only reveals its singular beauty once it has been sculpted.
