The Duke of Tuscany first bought jasmine in India in 1690, a flower originally from Arabia. Whether fresh or dried, it still plays a quintessential role in India's myths, legends, and daily rituals. At times, jasmine sambac perfumes loose-leaf tea; at others, it is braided into floral necklaces. Revered spiritually, the odorant flower turns into an offering in Hindu temples.

Trudon was established in 1643 by Claude Trudon. It is known to be the oldest surviving candle maker in Paris. Generations have passed but these bespoke candles are still made to the exacting standards of Parisian artisanship. Trudon candles are hand-poured and made with the finest beeswax that has been filtered, washed, and bleached in the sunlight. Each fragrance tells a unique story and creates an inimitable sensorial experience.
