Trudon Abd El Kader Great: Moroccan Mint Tea

We are honored to carry the storied brand of Trudon and its time honored collection of candles. The Great Candle is impressive: with 5 wicks, the Great Candle can be staged inside as well as outside. The candles are still manufactured at the Trudon workshop in Normandy, France, using unrivaled know-how inherited from master candle makers for over 350 years.  Founded by the Trudon family, it has provided candles to France's cathedrals and nobility since 1643. Most famously, the Trudons supplied all the candles of Versailles on a daily basis, serving the Sun King, Louis XIV, during his reign.

One of the most quintessential Trudon candles, Abd El Kader's head notes are in Blackcurrant Bud, Lemon, Clove, Ginger, Mint, Apple, with heart notes of Jasmine, and base notes of vanilla . You will not want to stop at one of these. We are in love with longstanding performance and beautiful packaging of these candles!

Pro note: The hand made glass of these candles is so gorgeous that you will not want to part with the vessel when your candle is done. They make for beautiful bathroom displays for makeup brushes, makeup rounds, and even as a desk weight for your pens! The beauty keeps on giving. 

 From Trudon:

A gust of freedom blowing from the Mascara coast and the mountains picks up on its way the green scents of fresh mint, the rashness of fights, ginger’s hot and peppered air and the perfume of tea and tobacco.

  1. In order to get the most out of your candle, burn it until the entire surface of the candle melts.
  2. To preserve the fragrance, do not burn your candle for more than 2 hours at a time during the first third of the candle and 1 hour at a time during the remaining.
  3. Do not leave candle burning unattended. Do not set in a draft. Keep away from children, curtains and pets.
  4. Should the wick require centering, gently readjust to correct position when the wax is still molten. Allow candle to solidify before relighting.
  5. Should any black smoke appear, trim the tip of the wick. It should be clean and no longer than 5mm at all times.
  6. Always protect the table or surface on which the candle rests (with a wood or ceramic plate, for example).
  7. Do not burn your candle all the way down. Always leave at least 5 mm of non-molten wax at the bottom.
  8. Keep your candle in a dry and temperate environment, between 60 and 80° F.
