Editor's notes

Cire Trudon’s Louis XIV candle bust depicts the Sun King in full imperial, sovereign bearing.

Cire Trudon’s wax bust range reflects the brand’s venerable history, creating candles for the French nobility since 1643. François Girardon’s original Louis XIV à cheval sculpture was created between 1685-1687 from brass, standing an imposing seven metres tall. The original statue was destroyed in 1792 during the French Revolution – the reduced-sized version, from which this bust is drawn, remains in the permanent collection at the Louvre. 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.
