Editor's notes

Cire Trudon’s Benjamin Franklin candle bust depicts one of America’s most influential historical figures – the son of a Boston candlemaker who become one of the nation’s Founding Fathers.

Cire Trudon’s wax bust range reflects the brand’s rich and venerable history, creating candles for the French nobility since 1643. A newspaper editor, postmaster, statesman, scientist and one of the signatories of the Declaration of Independence, Franklin is shown here in a copy of a famous bust by ‘the sculptor of the Enlightenment’, artist Jean-Antoine Houdon. 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.
