Abd El Kader
  • Moroccan Mint Tea
  • 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…
  • Head Notes: Blackcurrant Bud, Lemon, Clove, Ginger, Mint, Apple | Heart Notes: Jasmine| Base Notes: Vanilla
Ernesto
  • Leather and Tobacco
  • In a hotel of Havana, under the fixed sun of the Revolution: the fierce and partisan overtones of leather and tobacco meddle with the paneling’s waxen silence. In the cool dimness, fawn grimaces shimmer along with the smoke of cigars and the barrels of guns.
  • Head Notes: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Rhum | Heart Notes: Oak Wood, Clove, Labdanum, Patchouli | Base Notes: Tobacco, Amber, Leather, Moss

  • Splendor of Indian jasmine
  • 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.
  • Head Notes: Ylang-Ylang | Heart Notes: Sambac Jasmine absolute | Base Notes: Benzoin Resin
Tadine
  • Sensuality of Sandalwood
  • When Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines, New-Caledonia, in 1840, it was, then, unknown in Europe. By the end of the 19th Century, the noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree: named ‘candana’ in Sanskrit, or ‘sandal’ in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, it still billows today, seamlessly embedded in the smoke of Asian incense.
  • Head Notes: Cardamom | Heart Notes: Sandalwood essential oil | Base Notes: Guaiac wood
Reggio
  • Hint of Citrus from Calabria
  • 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.
  • Head Notes: Grapefruit | Heart Notes: Mandarin essential oil
 
 
Cire Trudon
Founded in 1643, on the threshold of the reign of Louis XIV, Cire Trudon is the oldest Candlemaker in the world still active today. Throughout the 17th century, the manufacturer became the Royal Wax Manufacturer and official supplier in the French court, then to Napoléon Bonaparte. Cire Trudon received a Gold Medal during the 1889 Universal Exhibit as a reward for the outstanding quality of its candles and wax.
Cire Trudon enlists well-known “noses” to create perfumes for the stories it wishes to tell. Each candle is still dripped and made by hand in its factory in Normandy, perpetuating a luxury manufacturing that helps perpetuate the skills of its founder, Claude Trudon.
Maison Trudon has asked British painter and illustrator Lawrence Mynott to create an original drawing for each one of the fragrances in the line. Lawrence Mynott is one of the top illustrators, designers, and portrait painters of his generation. A control of pen and ink, stencil, paint, scraperboard, and pencil underlines his versatility in fashion drawing, caricature, figurative subjects, and portraiture, but his signature can be seen above all in his attention to detail, innate style, elegance, and wit that he brings to every project.
