Two Worlds Collide

All that glitters is gold with the launch of a limited-edition, new Balmain x Trudon candle. A royal synergy between luxury and perfumery, this gold-swathed collector’s item emanates indulgence, desire and intoxicating richness.

Experience an all-sensory surrender to the visual intricacies and heady aromas of this timeless masterpiece. Sitting pride of place in your living room, bedroom or any room worth adorning and transforming, this grandiose new oeuvre comes from two of design’s most hailed names.

A royal synergy between luxury and perfumery

Creative Director of Balmain Olivier Rousteing is a long term admirer, collector and impassioned follower of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle from Trudon’s signature cavalry is a particular favorite, with Rousteing often turning to the fragrance’s propensity to stir up something deep within the soul in both his home and creative studio.

Building upon this mutual fascination and long standing relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a divine union between the two Parisian houses. The artisan-made glass exterior and exquisite perfume reflect the distinctive savoir-faire of both Balmain and Trudon. It is a collision of beauty, fragrance and indisputable style, from two world-renowned maestros of design.

The candle fragrance comes from an exclusive scent created by Emilie Bouge (Maison Robertet nose) in collaboration with Olivier Rousteing and Trudon. Upon unboxing this object-of-desire, perfume paramours will succumb to dreamy base notes of Patebonli, Rockrose and Musk, mingling with Leather, Spices, Black Rose Moss Tobacco in the middle, and finished with Atlas Cedarwood and Javanese Nutmeg at the top. Emilie Bouge has called on Trudon’s iconic scent Ernesto as her muse for this new iteration, bestowing a boldly feminine edge.

Fashioned to be tres exclusive, its limited edition nature means acquisition of this candle must be imminent. Once you’ve reached your max quota with burn time on this evangelical treat, transform its majestic exterior into a vessel to house bathroom ephemera, desk tidbits or kitchen herbs. This glass vase was made for eternal admiration, to embrace the perennial possibilities of its artistry in the beholder’s own unique way.

Balmain x Trudon exists as an Adonis-like extension of Trudon’s iconic Enresto scent, with a floral, darkly feminine, black rose twist that is sure to prompt imminent swooning when deployed in the home or gifted to a lover. Shop now at Harrolds.
