Cire Trudon possesses a long and proud history, which reaches back into the 17th century and the reign of Louis XIV. It was then that Claude Triton established his name as the proprietor of a boutique based in the Rue Saint-Honoré, from which amassed his reputation as a grocer and candler.
And it was those candles that lit his path to success, as Parisian came to appreciate the quality of his beeswax creations. The fact it was beeswax they were formed from was important. Carefully harvested from hives before being first filtered, then washed and exposed to sunlight, the material was of the purest white. Little wonder, then, that the brand adopted a Latin motto that translates as 'they (the bees) work for God and the king'.
Aside from possessing that gorgeously immaculate white colour, the candles also burned long into the night without spluttering. Such was the artistry preserved from generation to successive generation, in fact, that the Cire Trudon name remains a synonym for excellence to this very day.
