« These are my subjects. I try to make them happy. » This is what Joséphine Bonaparte said once about her plants. The future Empress, a passionate botanist, bought the Rueil Malmaison castle in 1799. Seduced by its surrounding landscape, she created a romantic garden blooming with flowers from around the world. This labyrinth of feminine sensitivity inspired the House to create its new candle.

Candle anatomy

The Wick

is made of cotton. One can find many types of wicks, characterized by their weaving and their diameter. The wicks are chosen depending on the shape and size of the glasses, as well as the burning characteristics of each candle.

The Wax

is the fruit of specific developments which are the source of the candle exceptional olfactory and burning qualities. When correctly taken care of, no smoke leaves a Trudon candle and no wax is left on the sides of the glass.

The Emblem

is inspired by a bas relief found at the old Royal Wax Manufacture which used to belong to the Trudon family. Situated in Antony, near Paris, it now belongs to the Church. Nowadays the domain hosts the nuns of the Saint-Joseph de Cluny congregation.

The Glass

is unique and hand-crafted in Tuscany. Its shape is inspired by champagne buckets.
