THE BALMAIN X TRUDON CANDLE
The Balmain X Trudon candle
Olivier Rousteing, the Creative Director of Balmain, is a long-time fan of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle is a particular favorite, with Rousteing often relying on the scent for both his home and studio.
Building upon that longstanding relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses.
In addition to the leathery,
gunpower and cigar notes,
the new scent features the mysterious and distinguished addition of a black rose,
giving Ernesto a floral and feminine twist.
The container and perfume reflect the distinctive savoir-faire and style of both Balmain & Trudon
The striking container, inspired by the pattern of Balmain’s iconic marinière,
relies on horizontal stripes and the house’s two signature colors: gold and black.
The meticulous creation process relies on an initial hand application of gold leaf upon the clear glass, before it is lacquered in black - resulting in many fine cracks, ensuring that each candle is truly unique.
The limited-edition Balmain x Trudon candle is available in two sizes: Classic (270g)
and La Grande Bougie (2,8kg).
