Cire Trudon Solis Rex Classic Candle - Versailles Wooden Floors

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).
With an emphasis on luxury and tradition, Solis Rex captures the essence of the Mirror Gallery in the Palace of Versailles – think waxed floors and the headiness of incense with the merest hint of invigorating citrus. Created in honour of the Sun King – the first patron of Cire Trudon and the embodiment of French arts and culture at the time – this multi-faceted scent has a clean, slightly sappy freshness (Green Leaves, Eucalyptus and Orange) that gives way to the heart of Fir’s Bark and base notes of Cedar and Incense. Mysterious and alluring, this seductive candle is completely paraffin-free and made using only the finest natural oils and waxes to ensure it burns evenly for up to 70 hours. A gorgeous gift, fit for a King, this will also bring unbridled delight to many a lesser-spotted mortal…
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.
100% Vegetable Waxes (palm, rice, soy and coprah oils). Wick of pure cotton. Essential Oils.

The very best candle

A kind friend sent me this, which I would never have bought myself or even tested—I find most candles cloying or acrid. But this! It truly is old hardwood floors, long-burnt candles from last night's revels, mirrors glinting in dawn light—and an echo of incense, when you kneel to confess your beautiful sins.

Good scent, bad wick quality

I'm partial to woody scents so I liked this candle. I haven't purchased a candle with some citrus undertones though and found out they aren't my thing, but it's still not too bad anyway. I was kind of disappointed about the wick quality though as it were harder to cut with a wick trimmer since it pulls apart. I'm not sure if this I got a bad batch though since this is my first candle from the brand.

Complex, heady - took time to grow on me

I am a Cire Trudon addict and want to try as much of the range as possible. I ordered this because of the other five-star reviews. When it arrived and I opened the box, I was hit by the heady smell. I immediately hated it and regretted spending so much money on a candle that smells so overpowering. This is a very complex scent, however, it has started to grow on me. The more I use this candle, the more I’m intrigued by it. I do not regret this purchase anymore, as it is such an interesting fragrance. I will not ever buy this candle again - it’s just too strong a smell for me and unfortunately my family all hate it. My favourite is Cire Trudon Ernesto, as it is lighter and warmer in notes - and my family all love the Ernesto candle, too.

A cult luxury

This scent is complex, slightly challenging - both clean and sexy and utterly gorgeous.
