I still can not get over the beautiful launches last year, details here and the year has just flown by so quickly – sharing the Cire Trudon Christmas 2019 Collection from the house in this article.

Cire Trudon celebrates Christmas with a collection of 6 festive scented candles: their magnetic refections and luminous surfaces are unique. The candles are handcrafted with care, each glass is first lacquered on the inside before being decorated with silver leaves. Placed one by one, the later leaves fine cracks through which the light shines mysteriously. The flickering gives the candle a unique presence.

Further lacquered, the scented candles stand out with a colourful sheen: Abd el Kader’s silvery-white, Ernesto’s enigmatic black, Fir’s deep metallic blue, Nazareth’s magnetic red, Gabriel’s iridescent khaki and Hupo’s golden amber. In addition to Cire Trudon’s Nativity scents – evoking deserts, benzoin, myrrh and the trilogy of Magi kings – Fir et Hupo bring wintery notes of fir and amber to the collection.

‘Abd el Kader’ candle with its sweet spearmint scent calls to mind the aroma of hot mint tea. Ginger, Clove, Jasmine and Vanilla give the refreshing fragrance a warm depth. The vegetable-based wax is housed in limited ediiton packaging adorned with the house’s signature gold plaque. A gust of freedom blowing from the Mascara coast and the mountains picks up on its way the green scents of fresh mint, the rashness of fights, ginger’s hot and peppered air and the perfume of tea and tobacco from the Ouled Nail tribe. The keynotes fragrance are below:

Head Notes are Apple, Blackcurrent Bud, Clove, Ginger, Lemon, Spearmint

Heart Note is Jasmine

Base Note is Vanilla

Born in 1808 near the town of Mascara in Algeria, Abd El Kader was a politician and military leader, as well as a writer, poet and philosopher who founded the Algerian state. Nicknamed “the friend of the French”, he was said to be enlightened and cultivated. A man who always fought with honour, he was highly respected even by his enemies.

Cire Trudon’s candle has been carefully hand-poured in Normandy and presented within a golden glass vessel bearing the brand’s emblem. Instilled with notes of Amber, Cedarwood and Iris, ‘Hupo’ is a relaxing fragrance that “fills your home with a sense of calm.” Notes of Citrus and Cinnamon make it particularly festive, so be sure to light it when you have visitors.

‘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 a high price between China and the Middle East. Used in perfumes as well as medicine, its enigmatic, sensual scent matches the skin perfectly. Presented in a golden glass, the Hupo scented candle welcomes the olfactory strength of ambergris, incense and cashmere wood to celebrate Christmas in a unique manner.’

Heart Notes: Iris, Patchouli, Incense
Base Notes: Amber, Leather, Labdanum, Vanilla

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. Cire Trudon Scented Candles are available at WANT ApothecaryGravity PopePutti Fine FurnishingPink Tartan, Avenue Road, and KANDL Artistique.

Being a lover of luxury candles and scents, I always have the scented candles on rotation for a specific season. I do have a few on my favorite candles from Cire Trudon, which I reviewed here, they are very much loved and on rotation. I am so glad to share one of the three new candles from the Christmas 2018 collection. Cire Trudon brings ancient Egypt back to life for Christmas with the trio of three timeless scented candles: outstanding pyramids (Cire Trudon Gizeh), an Egyptian God (Amon), and an island on the Nile River (Philae).

Cire Trudon Gizeh Scented Candle Christmas 2018

The three exclusive scents this festive season have traditional incense, notes of papyrus and the comforting presence of a candied-firewood hearten the soul. The collection celebrates ancient Egypt’s evocative power: the visionary architecture of the Gizeh Pyramids; the strength of Amon, a revered, mysterious God; and the timeless geography of Philae, a protected island on the Nile River. Regarding the packaging, the handcrafted boxes have hieroglyphs and acronyms hint at the enigmatic civilization: an eye, a branch of papyrus, a sculptural eagle or a helping hand mimic ancient tales. Standing out, the name of each scented candle is written in a distinct manner that suggests a treasure, geography, or secret divinity. There is gold on the inside, the three candles come in off-white, watery green, and mosaic pink colored glasses. The trio is called ‘Odeurs d’Egypte’ and reveals the sacred nature of Egypt’s ancient rituals and myths.

Out of the trio, I have Amon which I am really enjoying for the festive season. It has mosaic-pink packaging -hand-blown Italian glass, adorned with the signature Cire Trudon gold label. The Amon is an homage to the mysterious ancient Egyptian ‘hidden god’ that, as the myth has it, no one could set eyes on. Encapsulating this mysterious story, this candle is scented with notes of traditional incense, subtly sweet patchouli and vanilla-like tonka bean, opening with head notes of rose and aldehydes and carried on an irresistibly woody base of sandalwood and cedar. Golden inside with a mosaic-pink exterior, the beautiful jar makes a great addition to any roo

The notes of the scent are:

Head: Rose, Aldehyde
