CIRE TRUDON MATCHES
At Cire Trudon, matches are an essential part of the ritual. In one crack, it ignites the wick, surprises the shadows and gives life to light. Delicately perfumed, it signs the prologue of the stories behind the candles. Elegant, long and delicate, asleep in their illustrated boxes, they patiently wait for their destiny. If the box is left slightly open, they will slightly scent, in their sleep, a drawer, a cupboard or a study.

TADINE- Sensuality of Sandalwood
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.
Brightness of Mimosa
Imported from Australia by British botanists at the turn of the 19th Century, mimosa has since become the Cote d’Azur’s floret: the solar bushes now blossom on the hillsides of the Esterel Massif.
A wild vegetal composition, the Estérel perfume is as vibrant and delicate as the mimosa’s clusters.
Hint of Citrus from Calabria
Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin-tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea.
Facing the Messina Strait, it sculpts the Calabrian landscape without a touch of bitterness. The mandarin’s softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar.
