Editor's notes

Cire Trudon’s candle bust depicts the young son of celebrated architect Alexandre Théodore Brongniart, based on a sculpture by Jean-Antoine Houdon – a sweet and tender depiction of childhood.

Cire Trudon’s wax bust range reflects the brand’s rich and venerable history, creating candles for the French nobility since 1643. Artist Jean-Antoine Houdon (known as ‘the sculptor of the Enlightenment’) maintained an interest in the theme of childhood throughout his career, as well as creating effigies of contemporary luminaries such as Diderot, Rousseau and Voltaire. Display this wax bust for a flagrantly opulent interiors accent.

About

Cire Trudon, the world's oldest candlemaker, has been turning wax into light since 1643. Founded on Rue Saint Honoré, just down the road from the Tuileries Palace, the company and its innovations became a part of French history, appearing in a Balzac book and, more importantly, supplying illumination to Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette and, eventually, Napoleon. Today, having survived revolution and the invention of electricity, Cire Trudon works with contemporary noses and desingers to make distinctive – and gorgeously packaged – scented candles.
