Cire Trudon Reggio Scented Matches
By Cire Trudon
At Cire Trudon, matches are an essential part of the ritual. In one crack, it ignites the wick, surprises the shadow and gives life to light. Delicately perfumed, it signs the prologue for some of the stories behind the candles. Elegant, long and delicate, asleep in their illustrated boxes, they patiently wait for their destiny. If the box is left slightly open, they will slightly scent, in their sleep, a drawer, a cupboard or a study.
Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin-tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea. Facing the Messina Strait, it sculpts the Calabrian landscape without a touch of bitterness. The mandarin’s softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar.
Iconic city of Southern Italy, Reggio embodies the easy-going Italian way of life, but is also the birthplace of Pythagoras School. Citrus trees and thousand-year old olive trees grow, facing its legendary bay. Calabrese mandarin, acidulous and delicate, fills the orchards with its perfume since Antique times.
