L’Esprit de L’Eau Candle by Trudon
Maître Tseng × Trudon collection
270g Boxed Candle
L’Esprit de L’Eau (The Spirit of Water) is embodied by a mystical water with the fragrance of incense. Created by Benoist Lapouza, it combines a mineral accord, that of clear water gliding over mountain rocks, with woody notes of cedar and of cypress, as well as spicy notes of pepper and juniper berry. L’Esprit de L’Eau illustrates high perspective and purity, as its name in Chinese suggests: 宋書 or Book of Song (Dynasty) refers to the ascetic philosophy of that time, seeking from nature inspiration for a spiritual life in solitude and elevation.

Maître Tseng × Trudon – Trudon collaborates with Master Tseng to conceive a collection of three scented candles celebrating the world of tea and its thousand years of history in China. Yu Hui Tseng comes from a very old Chinese family. She is a descendant of Confucius’ first disciple. As a tea master, she represents both tradition and modernity. Master Tseng spends most of her time in Asia working with exceptional tea producers. More than thirty years ago, she set up her first exploration trips to old tea routes in remote regions, to reach primary forests where precious tea leaves are harvested in extreme conditions. As vigilant as she is demanding, Master Tseng orchestrates each stage of the production of her teas.
Master Tseng has revolutionised tea tasting, creating a new school in both Asia and Europe.
At the heart of Paris’ Latin quarter and in the early 1900s Maître Tseng created Maison des Trois Thés. It has turned into both the largest tea cellar in the world and a sanctuary for connoisseurs and professionals.
