If you are a regular follower of StyleZeitgeist, you may have noticed our love for the French candlemaker Cire Trudon.
We are back with our holiday gift guide, lest you think that we are all serious all the time.
It’s always a special occasion when Cire Trudon, the venerable French candle-maker, launching a new scented candle. This time the scent is tied to the theme of 2019’s Earth Day: Protect Our Species. Trudon’s candles are made by traditional methods from traditional materials – that is beeswax. Bees have been at the heart of Trudon’s manufacture for centuries, and some bee species are going extinct. For this project Trudon teamed up with the Perche regional Nature Park in Normandy, where the company operates. 4% from sales of this candle will go to protecting the dark bees indigenous to the region. The candle will debut in the US in early May.
As you may have noticed, here at StyleZeitgeist we are comfortable with both modernism and tradition, as long as it’s done well. And so it should come as no surprise that in the olfactory world, we love Cire Trudon’s golden crest on handmade Italian glass vessels of their storied candles as much as we love say the black iron cylinders of Mad et Len’s earthy odors.
Here is our annual gift guide for 2017.
