Balmain x Trudon
It is impressive: with 5 wicks, the Great Candle can be staged inside as well as outside. Sculptural, it loves the sight of a grand staircase or jardin à la française. They are manufactured at the Trudon workshop in Normandy, France, using unrivaled know-how inherited from master candle makers.
Building upon a longstanding relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses. The container and perfume reflect the distinctive savoir-faire and style of both Balmain and Trudon. The striking container, inspired by the pattern of Balmain’s iconic marinière, relies on horizontal stripes and the house’s two signature colors: red and black. The meticulous creation process relies on an initial hand application of gold leaf upon the clear glass, before it is lacquered in black - resulting in many fine cracks, ensuring that each candle is truly unique. Maison Robertet nose Emilie Bouge has managed to give Ernesto a floral and feminine twist. In addition to the leathery, Atlas cedarwood, gunpower and cigar notes, the new scent features the mysterious and distinguished addition of a black rose. Paying homage to Balmain’s couture origins, the Trudon label has been printed in gold foil on black velvet, before being applied onto the glass. The distinctive Balmain and Trudon logos, printed in gold foil, decorate the top and sides of the black packaging.
