Cire Trudon x Balmain Limited Edition Candle Grande 3KG
SCOUT is thrilled to be one of only a handful of retailers in Australia chosen to showcase this incredible collaboration by Trudon X Balmain. Only 4000 candles have been released worldwide!
Olivier Rousteing, the Creative Director of Balmain, is a long-time fan of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle is a particular favorite, with Rousteing often relying on the scent for both his home and studio.
Building upon that long-standing relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses. The container and perfume reflect the distinctive savoir-faire and style of both Balmain and Trudon.
The candle fragrance comes from an exclusive scent created by Emilie Bouge (Maison Robertet nose) in collaboration with Olivier Rousteing and Trudon.
Emilie Bouge has given Trudon’s iconic scent Ernesto, a floral and feminine twist. In addition to the leathery, Atlas cedarwood, gunpowder and cigar notes, the new scent features the mysterious and distinguished addition of a black rose.
Paying homage to Balmain’s couture origins, the Trudon label has been printed in gold foil on black velvet, before being applied onto the glass.
The meticulous creation process relies on an initial hand application of gold leaf upon the clear glass, before it is lacquered in black - resulting in many fine cracks, ensuring that each candle is truly unique
The striking container, inspired by the pattern of Balmain's iconic marinière, relies on horizontal stripes and the house's two signatures colors : black and gold.
