Sous un Ciel de Petales Candle by Trudon
Maître Tseng × Trudon collection
270g Boxed Candle
Sous un Ciel de Pétales (Under a Sky of Petals) combines jasmine sambac and jasmine grandiflorum – both originating from the Himalayas – and with fresh notes of bergamot, the fragrance of Sous un Ciel de Pétales, created by Vincent Ricord, alludes to a floral scene. Its fragrance is supported by base notes of guaiac wood and light touches of incense, which evoke this candle’s connection to the earth. The origin of Sous un Ciel de Pétales’ Chinese name is closely linked to the Qing dynasty poem that Master Tseng has written on the front of Maison des Trois Thés in calligraphy: 桃花源 . This refers to the myth of Shangri La, a heavenly valley where peach trees are in full bloom, protected from time and the outside world, the existence of which cannot be revealed if one hopes to ever return there. Those who walk through its gate, just like that of Maison des Trois Thés, have been warned…
Scent Profile – Bergamot, Jasmine, Guaiac Wood, Incense
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.
