    • Why it's Cult
      Established in the 17th century, Cire Trudon is the oldest candle maker in the world and was responsible for perfuming the persons and palaces of the French monarchy… until Napoleon expressed his mutual penchant for the country’s première candle creators. With fans from King Louis XIV to ‘Her Madgesty’ Madonna (the singer, not the ‘virgin’) Cire Trudon’s celeb endorsements speak volumes about the quality and luxury of this beautiful brand – and with over 370 years of experience, you’d expect them to have just about perfected their skills by now… A stunning addition to any bedside table, desk or mantelpiece, each candle is housed in hand-blown Italian glass, adorned with their signature gold label stating the motto of the ‘Maison Trudon’; ‘Deo regique laborant’ meaning ‘They work for God and King’ (‘they’ being bees).

    • How to use
      It is important to trim wick before each use. When using the candle for the first time, keep the candle alight until the entire surface is covered in liquid wax. This should take approximately 1 hour and will ensure a more effective, even burn for all future uses. Depending on where the candle is placed it has a burn time of 65-70 hours.
    • Full ingredients list
      100% Vegetable Waxes (palm, rice, soy and coprah oils). Wick of pure cotton. Essential Oils.

    Cire Trudon - Abd El Kader (Tobacco & Mint Tea)

    Cire Trudon Abd El Kader (Tobacco & Mint Tea) Reviews

    Sumptuous and beautifully crafted
    This candle is the first Cire Trudon I have bought. I am converted. The quality is instantly evident, from the complex but not overwhelming or cloying perfume to the way it burns perfectly. The heavy glass packaging and gold label are stunning. While not my favourite candle in terms of the particular scent I chose, I do like very much the mint tea and tobacco. It is a work of art and different from the usual, even among high end candles. Quite exotic. Cire Trudon candles are beautifully crafted and a pleasure to use. Would make a lovely gift too.
    Abd El Kader? Abd El Ka-Wow!
    Just sublime. Smells fresh, but there is a depth to the sent that makes it comforting. I'm not expert on scents, but the first hit I pick up was the same smell as crushing mint leaves; definitely mint, but earthy and rich. After it burns for a bit, there is a mild spice as well, and more of the earthy greenness comes through with a tiny hint of vanilla to keep everything soothing and mellow. The throw of the candle is really good, though it takes about a half-hour before the smells really starts to spread. After about an hour, a medium-size room (350 sq feet (sorry, I'm American:/)) will be nicely scented. Honestly, I don't mind that it takes a bit for the scent to disperse, since they don't recommend burning the candle for less than 2 hours at a time to prevent tunneling. Also, the scent really lingers; I'll light the candle in the evening, let it go for a couple hours before going to bed, and I can still smell it the next morning. Just leaving the candle uncovered will scent a small room. I've bought the Nazareth candle from Cire Trudon as well for the Holidays. I have a feeling that this is going to become a bit of an expensive addiction, but I will actually put an extra line in my (imaginary) budget spreadsheet for these candles if they all smell this good.
    Wow!
    Amazing fragrance, beautiful packaging. Even when the candle is unlit the fragrance permeates the room.
