Versailles Wooden Floors
Inspired by the elaborate parquetry of Château de Versailles’s famous Hall of Mirrors, this regal perfume radiates vapours of wax, candelabra and palace. A sumptuous trail of incense weaves through a tapestry of coniferous trees, cut with solar rays of citrus fruits.

Louis XIV, called “The Sun King” was King of France from 1643 to 1715. Eccentric and majestic, as an adolescent he participated in a royal ballet in which he appeared as the sun. He chose the day star as his emblem because it gives life to all things. Louis XIV symbolises the grandeur of France. He made France into a military, political and cultural influence. He instigated the construction of the magnificent Palace of Versailles, which became the residence of the kings of France and their courts starting in 1682.
Our candle sizes
Quite the ideal companion. An easy size to travel with, La Petite Bougie blends in wherever it goes and can easily turn into the perfect gift.
A Trudon classic, La Bougie Classique fits all occasions; perfumes each and every room. Available in all scents, it is the most iconic.
It stands out: with three wicks, La Bougie Intermède is best placed in large rooms, where it will adorn a chimney or an elegant diner table.
It is impressive: with 5 wicks, La Grande Bougie can be staged inside as well as outside. Sculptural, it loves the sight of a grand staircase or jardin à la française.
The wax formulas of the Trudon candles are the fruit of specific developments which are the source of its 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 wicks are 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.
Our 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.
Each glass is unique and hand-crafted in Tuscany. Their shape is inspired by champagne buckets.
