Description
Louise and Alexandre were the children of architect Alexandre- Théodore Brongniart (1739-1813), famous for designing the Stock Exchange building in Paris and transforming the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Thanks to his mother who was a painter and his father who was a caretaker at the Louvre museum, Jean-Antoine Houdon (1741-1828) became acquainted at a very early age with the best sculptors of his time, such as Jean Baptiste Pigalle and Jean Baptiste Lemoyne. He is considered the «Sculptor of the Enlightenment » and fixed in stone the portraits of important figures of the time, including the Tsarina Catherine the Great of Russia, Diderot, Voltaire and Rousseau. As the most brilliant portraitist of the 18th century, Houdon maintained all his life a strong interest in the theme of childhood. The portraits of the Brongniart's children made in 1777 express with strength and tenderness this passion for a subject that never became old-fashioned. Well aware of the richness of its history, Maison Trudon has asked the Réunion des Musées Nationaux (the French National Museum Council) to be granted the rights of reproducing in was some jewels from its Molding Workshop catalogue. Trudon introduces today the busts of characters or symbols of the French History, a very precious theme for the company which used to be the Manufacture Royale de Cire.
Cire Trudon
The many centuries-long experience of the Trudon company makes it a wax producer with unrivalled know-how. Skilful and demanding, Trudon draws all its talent from its wax producers without neglecting innovation for perfecting its waxes.

Trudon keeps a little secret when it comes to manufacturing: candle wax made with vegetal material, forming a unique mixture, to be blended with perfume for perfect candles that go on burning.

Confidentially, this unique wax is essentially made with soya and copra. The candle wicks are made from pure cotton. The candles do not contain any substances on the Greenpeace OSPAR list. No heavy metals or pesticides are involved in their manufacturing and they are entirely biodegradable.
