Established in 1643, on the threshold of the reign of Louis XIV, Cire Trudon is the oldest working wax maker in the world. During the 17th century, the factory became the Royal Wax Factory, official supplier to the French Court and Napoleon I. The factory has spanned the centuries, modernising and adapting throughout its history. In 1889, it was awarded a gold medal at the Universal Exhibition in Paris and has won other awards for the intelligence of its expertise, today as innovative as ever.
For several decades, Cire Trudon has been developing scented candles in partnership with renowned perfumers and, as part of its partnership with the RMN, the French national museum council also offers reproductions in coloured waxes.
In 2017, responding to the world of candles and lightened by the word ""wax"", the House of Trudon extended its expertise and acquired a collection of seven skin fragrances for men and women.
