Walk through the necessary and essentials steps to manufacture the Trudon candles in the workshops in Normandy.
Elaborated hand in hand with world class perfumers, Trudon’s fragrances are the result of a careful development. Choosing the raw materials, testing the formula in our laboratory, mixing the perfume with the wax are some of the steps that lead the way to a scented candle.
All our candles are handmade in our own factory in Normandy, France. Their fabrication begins by the setup of the wicks. They are set at the bottom of each glass so that they stay perfectly centered. The glasses are then aligned on wooden counters before pouring.
Right after the molten wax is mixed with the perfume, it is poured by hand into the aligned glasses.
When the wax is poured, the wicks are softened due to the effect of the heat and they slightly bend inside the glass. When the wax starts to solidify, the wicks are straightened by hand to ensure that the stay perfectly centered.
The candles are then surfaced. This means that the top is slightly melted to make sure the surface is perfectly smooth. The wick is then cut at a specific height to ensure an optimal first burning.
As a timeless object, Trudon candles are the expression of an exceptional know-how, from the waxing to the packaging, and each label is centred and affixed by hand.
Each candle format comes in its own customised box, recognisable with the Trudon emblems and attributes. A manual packaging meant to give each candle optimal protection.
