Lily of the Valley
Early mornings in bed with an exultant scent of hope and celebrations… The air exhales the fresh and green vapors of springtime. The Lily of the valley leads our hearts towards singing tomorrows and their sweet revenge !

The Labor Day observed on 1st May in France is actually the amalgam of several holidays established in the 19th century to celebrate workers (the proletariat). In 1889, in honour of the centennial of the French Revolution, 1st May became associated with labour's fight to obtain an eight-hour workday. In early 20th century Paris, seamstresses gave three sprigs of lily of the valley to their workers and little helpers, but we will have to wait until 1976 to celebrate this day on 1st May.
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, the Classic Candle fits all occasions; perfumes each and every room. Available in all scents, it is the most iconic.
It stands out: with three wicks, the Intermezzo Candle is best placed in large rooms, where it will adorn a chimney or an elegant dinner table.
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.
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.
