If cacao is an homage to Bayonne, chilli pepper is an homage to the neighboring town of Espelette, known for its Piment d’Espelette. Chilli pepper and Cocoa were imported from Latin America around the same period. The Bayonne Candle is also imagined by the joys of Christmas, the pine notes naturally paying homage to the end of year celebrations.

Trudon invites Versailles and the Sun King for a golden Christmas: a magical spirit filled with opulence and humour reigns on the 5 scented candles of the collection. On the glass, black and gold arabesques, reminiscent of Versailles ironworks and gates, adorn the Trudon emblem. All the more theatrical, the Chateau's silhouette and its royal masquerades come to life through Lawrence Mynott's illustrations. A double L further evokes the royal seal. Handcrafted with care, the five golden Christmas candles are richly decorated and festive. A new addition to the range, Bayonne is gourmet: notes of chocolate, Espelette chili and pine tree call for vast banquets.
