Solis Rex Pillar Candle by Trudon

This special edition pays tribute to Louis the 14th, also known as the “Sun King”, defender of the arts and letters, and completes the Versailles collection: a Gold and Blue pillar candle with a mold by hand golden Louis XIV cameo as an ornament. Each pillar candle is milled, colored and decorated in our Normandy atelier.

Louis XIV conceived the Versailles park as a departure from the traditional courtly life, offering an invitation to relaxation and festivities. The initial celebrations, titled “The Pleasures of the Enchanted Isle,” featured an exceptional comedy-ballet by Molière and Lully. Three days of celebration where even the castle, too small for all the guests, forced some to sleep in their carriages just to see the king dance and perform comedy.

The wax formulas of the Trudon candles are the source of its exceptional olfactory and burning qualities. When correctly burned, no smoke is emitted from a Trudon candle and no wax is left on the inside of the hand-blown glass.

What makes Trudon candles so special is the fact that they are made with a wax that has been perfected over hundreds of years. The unique wax blend ensures that the candle burns cleaner and longer with exceptional scent diffusion and cleaner burning. The natural waxes also ensure that the candles are more sustainable than synthetic candles. The pure cotton wicks and the fact that Trudon candles contain no pesticides or heavy metals, ensure that the candles are green and safe. Trudon candles are also biodegradable. The paraffin-free wax made with soy oils, rice and copra, ensure that the candle is less harmful than other candles laced with synthetic products and toxins
