Cacao, Chili pepper, Pine

A city in the South West of France, during the early 16th century, Bayonne was the first port of France through which cacao was imported. It became the first chocolate manufacturing city in the kingdom. Chocolate was introduced to the court of France under Louis the 14th and quickly became a fad that gathered momentum throughout the courts of Europe until today’s mass consumption.

If cacao is an homage to Bayonne, chilli pepper is an homage to the neighboring town of Espelette, known for its Piment d’Espelette. Chilli pepper was imported from Latin America around the same period as cacao and contrarily to cacao it has remained a specialty of the region. Pine is naturally an homage to Christmas. 

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.
