Historic French candlemaker, Cire Trudon, has created luxurious perfumed candles in Paris since 1643. It celebrates Christmas with a collection of festive scented candles: their magnetic reflections and luminous surfaces are unique. Handcrafted with care, each golden amber, handcrafted Tuscany glass in the shape of a champagne bucket is lacquered on the inside before being decorated with silver leaves. Placed one by one, the latter leave fine cracks through which the light shines mysteriously. The flickering gives the candle a unique presence.
A special limited edition perfumed candle for Christmas 2019, in a brand new fragrance, Hupo welcomes the olfactory strength of ambergris, incense and cashmere wood to celebrate Christmas in a unique manner. A mysterious and mesmerizing material, ambergris has been treasured since antiquity. The Hupo scented candle hints at ambergris’ rare origin: sought and desired, ambergris fascinated sovereigns around the globe; it was exchanged at high price between China and the Middle East. Used in perfumes as well as medicine, its enigmatic, sensual scent matches the skin perfectly.
The motto on the gold leaf emblem, ‘Deo Regique Laborant’, on the emblem rather delightfully means ‘the bees work for God and the King’.
