I adore Cire Trudon Candles, their scent, vibes, and the experience is just amazing. I have few favorites which I reviewed in the past here and here. Salta, a new addition to the Cire Trudon Les Belles Matieres line, is a new candle from the house which has been a staple in my house since few weeks, it is such a beautiful scent.
Salta, main city of the province of the same name, sits at the bottom of the Andes Mountains, in the fertile region of Lerna, Argentina. A well-known colonial town, the city is often called Salta la Linda, Beautiful Salta. The Lerna region is famous for its exceptional citrus, amongst which the acidulous grapefruit.
Considered by the Chinese as one of the three holy fruits with peach and lemon, the grapefruit was a symbol of prosperity and fertility. Also highly prized by the Greeks and the Romans, the hesperide has a crisp freshness: known for its rich terroir and unique soil, the Salta region enhances the citrus’ intensity. Blended with verbena and hyacinth, the grapefruit fragrance is aromatic.
The notes of the candle are:
Top Notes – Verbena
Heart Notes – Grapefruit
Base Notes – Hyacinth
The packaging is beautiful as you see in the pictures. It opens with top notes of verbena before bursting with fresh and citrusy grapefruit, on an intriguing base of hyacinth. The candle is housed in hand-blown Italian glass, adorned with the signature Cire Trudon gold label to single out as a curator of chic.
It is a stunning addition to any bedside table, desk or mantelpiece. If you are a scented candle lover or want to add a touch of luxury on your bedside, vanity, or living room, I highly recommend you to check out this beautiful candle.
