When Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines, New-Caledonia in 1840, it was then unknown in Europe. By the end of the 19th Century, the noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree: named 'candana' in Sanskrit, or 'sandal' in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, it still billows today, seamlessly embedded in the smoke of Asian incense.

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.
