In a hotel of Havana, under the fixed sun of the Revolution: the fierce and partisan overtones of leather and tobacco meddle with the panelling’s waxen silence. In the cool dimness, fawn grimaces shimmer along with the smoke of cigars and the barrels of guns. – Scent profile for Ernesto candle by Cire Trudon.
The slightIest hint of perfume can instantly trigger memories from long ago – real, or as in the case of the candle-maker Cire Trudon’s Ernesto scent profile – imagined.Our sense of smell is one of the most powerful senses we possess because there is a direct link in our brains between memory and smell. Consider the impact of a heady whiff of night jasmine that brings up the happiest of summer memories, or the sudden warmth inspired by catching a distant friend’s signature scent as a stranger passes by.
French candle manufacturers Cire Trudon are more than equipped to navigate this force of evocative pleasure – they have been melting bees wax and lighting the regal courts of France since 1643.
Proudly surviving centuries of political and industrial revolutions (including the “miracle of electricity”) Cire Trudon have now evolved to become masters of the scented candle. Every candle is poured by hand into artisanal crafted glass made in Tuscany – its unique shape inspired by champagne buckets. (Well, they are French!)
Working alongside the world’s best perfumers, their fragrances are carefully developed to attract both memory and to create the scents that serve for future joyful reminiscences.
