La MarquiseAdd to Wish List
Verbena and roses
The powdery and merry air of a delicious boudoir: verbena and lemon polish the sensuality of the white flowers and roses. This perfume, at once tender and vivid, rekindles the sharpness of Madame de Pompadour’s conversations and the voluptuous charms of the Rocaille chic.

Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, Marquise de Pompadour, a lady of the French bourgeoisie, became the intimate confidante and favourite of King Louis XV. She had the three qualities of a king's favourite: beauty, wit and tenacity. A woman of taste and a patron of artists, she is also known for originating the “rocaille” style and redesigning the Sèvres porcelain factory.
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.
