White flowers bloom and gardenia, orange blossom, jasmine, magnolia, tuberose and lily combine in a delicate melody. Created by Cire Trudon in partnership with designer Giambattista Valli this special edition candle was inspired by the designer's love of the scents of picturesque Positano.

Queens, poets and artists met in the shade of fig trees and parasol pines. They enjoyed a fabulous view and the easy life so typical of the blue Mediterranean shores. The villa benefited from Roquebrune's air of scented lavender mixed with the dry aromas of Provence. 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…

9.5 oz. Josephine Classic Candle 9.5 oz. Reggio Classic Candle 9.5 oz. Salta Classic Candle
The muffled light of dawn slips through the flower beds. A fine shadow sneaks among the roses, jasmine, camellias and irises. With her delicate green thumb, she awakens the dazzling fragrances of a garden with an imperial destiny. Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin-tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea. Facing the Messina Strait, it sculpts the Calabrian landscape without a touch of bitterness. The mandarin's softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar. 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.

9.5 oz. Madeleine Classic Candle 9.5 oz. Madurai Classic Candle
Galloping from Versailles to Marseille, Madeleine's audacious spirit trails in the wind. Iris, jasmine and rose dress their petals in handsome leather. This swashbuckling fragrance pays homage to Madeleine de Maupin &mdash accomplished horsewoman, fencer and renown 17th century dissident. The Duke of Tuscany first brought jasmine in India in 1690, a flower originally from Arabia. Whether fresh or dried, they still play a quintessential role in India's myths, legends and daily rituals. At times, jasminum sambac perfumes loose-leaf tea; at others, it is braided into floral necklaces. Revered spiritually, the odorant flower turns into an offering in Hindu temples.

The bouquet of fresh and lush roses evokes Marie Antoinette's love of the flower. A hint of Tuscan black pepper at the heart of the rose delivers subtle, unexpected harmony. The special edition Rose Poivrée, candle was created by Cire Trudon in partnership with designer Giambattista Valli to celebrate the 2010 opening of his first store on rue Boissy d'Anglas in Paris. In its aromatic citrus garden, the sunny Cyrnos villa welcomed the flamboyant upper crust of early-20th century high society. Queens, poets and artists met in the shade of fig trees and parasol pines. They enjoyed a fabulous view and the easy life so typical of the blue Mediterranean shores. The villa benefited from Roquebrune's air of scented lavender mixed with the dry aromas of Provence. Wrapped in citrus and wood barks, the orange blossom weaves a painter's dream from which escapes the pale volutes of smoke from a narghile. Like an orientalist painting, furiously romantic, the vigorous scent of the cade and the solar splinter of citrus fruits spring out like a thin steel blade in silky shadow of vanilla.

Perfume History

Perfume history goes back to the Cleopatra, Rome, Greece and the Far East. Francis I brought back Italian customs of wearing scent (1525) and Catherine de Medici brought her own perfumer to France. In the time of Louis XIV (1638-1715), France entered the competition and vied for control the trade with the East for spices and aromatics. They planted aromatics and under royal protection the French perfume industry was born and nurtured. His personal perfumer made a special scent for him each day. In Grasse, perfume existed since the Middle Ages to cover the odor of leather gloves, and was extended to soap made from olive oil produced there. Soon even wigs were powdered with fragrance. The 18th century popularized potpourri in Sèvres porcelain; eau de cologne (originally scented spirits brought back from Cologne during the Seven Years War); blending for more complex fragrances; and crystal perfume bottles. The industry declined during the French Revolution, but was enhanced by Napoleon both through organic chemistry and his own use of several bottles a day!

Perfume Basics: Fragrance consists of essential oils and alcohol. Essential oils carry the true scent and are costly. There are no international "rules" on definitions and required percentage of essential oil, but the concentration is progressively less from parfum (French)/perfume (highest), eau de parfum, eau de toilette, cologne (least), and the prices will reflect this. Body products ("fragrance layering") are good for your skin and make your fragrance last longer. Usually, body creme will be "perfumed" while other products are "fragranced."
