Relax with Cire Trudon
Monday, 15 April 2013
Discovering this brand has come at the most ideal time as I've just moved to a beautiful apartment with one of my best friends and so I needed to set the tone of my new living space. I wanted to create a strong feeling of peace and tranquility to match my lovely new surroundings...my idea being that when I come home from a stressful day in the city I can fully relax and recuperate leaving my stress at the door.
Cire Trudon is more than just a brand, it's a magical and enchanting world that entices you in through the subtle and unique scents from the highest quality wax and fragrance oils. Cire Trudon has a very interesting perfumed history behind its established name...click here for a Cire Trudon history lesson.
Mademoiselle De La Valliere
''Secret powers of a naked flower for the love of Louis the XIV, Mademoiselle de La Vallière enveloped herself in the sweet and shattering intensity of tuberoses. Damp fragrance of an intoxicating love: from the King’s bedroom to her convent, Louise de la Vallière personified this deeply sensual flower, which plump and overwhelming aromas are that of true, blinding, almost spiritual love''
I would say 'Mademoiselle De La Valliere' boasts an unwinding and feminine scent, perfect for a ladies bedroom. I've been burning this before I go to bed each night to fill my room with its homely and warm fragrance to set me up for a settled sleep.
My second Cire Trudon candle, 'Trianon' has more of a fresh spring time and natural scent to it- This is the perfect candle for a summers evening to burn whilst listening to soft music and with good company.
''The picking of jacinth, roses, white flowers, wild herbs from the meadows and graminaceous plants, this bunch of flowers reminds us of an ideal nature, that of the Nouvelle Héloïse and the country life dreams of Marie Antoinette. Vibrating with the memory of a summer evening and the warm scent of musk of torches, this candle is a homage to the Queen of taste who inspired so many candles to Maison de Cire Trudon''
