Twin object designed by Pauline Deltour, Cire Trudon Eteignoirs are tools of precision: a thin brass hook reaches out to press the wick into the wax, without pinching it or smothering it. Under its grip, the candle’s flame vanishes, without smoke. Once raised back up and centred, the wax-coated wick can easily be lit up again.
With this modern-day accessory, Cire Trudon daily ritual is once again reinvented.
Each Eteignoir is presented in an illustrated sliding box.
Get to Know the Maker: Cire Trudon
Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest operating candle house in the world. Paris-based Maison de Cire Trudon supplied beeswax candles to Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette at Versailles and Napoleon’s Imperial Court. Their motto, "Deo Regique Laborant", means "The bees work for God and the King". Today, these peerless candles are the pinnacle of luxury with their delicious scents and innovative production techniques. Each candle is still dripped and made by hand, perpetuating an unrivaled experience and the skills of their founder, Claude Trudon.
