Balmain x Trudon Candle
‘Tobacco, Leather & Rose’
Peony is proud to have been selected as 1 of only 100 retailers worldwide to be showcasing the Balmain x Trudon candle. There have only been 4,000 units produced worldwide.
Olivier Rousteing, the creative director of Balmain, is a long-time fan of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle is a particular favourite, with Rousteing burning the scent in his home and studio. Building upon his longstanding 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 from Maison Robertet in collaboration with Olivier Rousteing and Trudon.
Emilie has given the iconic Ernesto fragrance a floral and feminine twist. In addition to the leather, Atlas cedarwood, gunpowder and cigar notes, the new scent features the mysterious and stunning addition of a black rose.
Head Notes – Atlas Cedarwood, Javanese Nutmeg
Heart Notes – Leather, Spices, Black Rose, Moss, Tobacco
Base Notes – Patchouli, Rockrose, Musk
The striking hand blown glass container is inspired by the pattern of Balmain’s iconic mariniere of horizontal stripes and its signature colour palette of black and gold.
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.
