The Cire Trudon shop in Paris, located at 78 rue de Seine is the world’s oldest candle maker was founded in 1643. Past customers have included Marie Antoinette and Napoleon. Current customers include Kenzo, Guerlain, Hermes and Dior.
Few brands have 367 years of heritage and know-how behind them, and few are lucky enough to have the skills of a talented marketer, patron of the arts and designer to support them. Cire Trudon literally gave light to the people (and royalty) and produced such high quality candles that it has survived, even flourished, in an electric world.
Ramdane Touhani has led the company since 2006, and in a few short years has created a wide range of products, a cult following, a store in Paris and a second store in the heart of NYC's Nolita neighborhood.
Prices range from $20-$375.
