Cire Trudon – the sweet smell of spring

Cire Trudon Les Belles Matieres

Last Wednesday, in the first properly spring-like week of the year, I got a fabulous whiff of the new Cire Trudon candles. There are three in the Les Belles Matieres range – a fruit, a wood and a floral.

Jasmine seems to be everywhere at the moment, so if you like this sweet, full-bodied floral, you’ll love the India-inspired ‘Madurai’ candle (buy it here). Then there’s ‘Reggio’, a vibrant and juicy mandarin candle in a swimming pool blue glass vessel that instantly transports me to the Mediterranean (buy it here). These sunny, summery candles aren’t what I immediately think of when I think of Cire Trudon (I usually think churchy woods) but I love the elegant uplift of this one.

And finally ‘Tadine’ harks back to the 19th century origins of spicy sandalwood, with a light, cardamom-infused candle. This is my favourite, a calming, almost meditative candle to wind down to at the end of the day (buy it here).

Another new Cire Trudon discovery: the most elegant way to put out your candle. Don’t blow on it, don’t use a snuffer, just ‘push’ it with L’Éteignoir, a chic brass tool that gently hooks the wick into the melted wax to extinguish the flame without smoke. Voila!
