Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest wax-producing factory worldwide. It was the provider of the royal court of Louis XIV, as well as most of the great churches of France.
Cire Trudon had become the biggest wax-producing factory in the French Kingdom during the 17th and 18th century. In 1762, in his encyclopaedia The art of the wax producer, engineer Duhamel du Monceau, praises the skills of the Trudons and gives the manufacture as an example. Such a level of quality earned Charles Trudon the appointment by King Louis XIV as Count Trudon des Ormes.
Cire Trudon represents time-honored skills. Today the former Royal Wax Manufacturer continues to make candles in France with extreme care. Discover the world and history of Cire Trudon.
