One of the real pleasures of having a blog is the opportunities it gives for highlighting the work of talented and creative people around me.
This theme has been continued in our French Country Home Magazine, where every edition includes an article highlighting a favourite artisan brand, and offering our readers an exclusive opportunity to buy their products.
For our current Artisans of France offer we are very happy to be working with Cire Trudon. One of the oldest candle makers in France, and whose fragrances are always present in my home. I use them in different sizes, a smaller one beside my bed and the regular size in my entrance hall and sitting room.
This offer actually sold out last week, but we have had a lot of demand, so we talked to Cire Trudon and we are able to let you know that there are a few more sets available!
I also love to give Cire Trudon candles as hostess gifts when we are invited to dinner. Everything is gorgeous about these candles, from the packaging, to the hand crafted glass containers, with its gold coat of arms label. And when the candle is finished I clean out the glass holder and use it for flowers , or pens on my desk – so chic!
I’m sure you know that trick for getting the last dregs of wax out of a candle holder you want to re-use? No? Oh well it’s super easy. Simply pop the jar into your deep freeze overnight, then the next day, use a pointed knife to gently leaver the remaining wax out of the jar! Done!
Their traditional candle comes in a pale turquoise box, with a dark green glass holder, and that is the one I use the most often, but a couple of months ago they brought out a spectacular copper coloured candle, and I fell in love! I use these along a fireplace, or outdoors in the evening, and the flame inside the candle holder makes everything shimmer beautifully.
You’ll be happy to know that we have put sets of the Cire Trudon candles together for you, and we are bringing them to you at lower than retail price. You can choose between our Harlequin set of four candles (the boxes are cream, dark blue, turquoise and pink),
or our Twin Set which includes that beautiful copper candle and the traditional blue boxed dark green candle;
or finally you can opt for our Two Plus Two set, that includes the beautiful copper glass, the cream box and a boxed set of two smaller candles, which incidentally make a wonderful gift for a girlfriend!
To choose which set you wish to order just click here, and use the drop down menu to find which set you want to purchase. We are taking orders for a limited time only, and we only have a certain number of sets to sell, so once they are sold out that will be it. The prices vary according to which set you choose, and they represent a big saving compared to retail prices in the USA or Australia. And what is more …. if you subscribe to our magazine, you get a further 35$ reduction on the price! Really, what are you waiting for?!

What is tax and postage if shipped to Austin, Texas 78703 for #3
HI Patricia, the postage is included in the price of our candles, and for the USA there is no tax. Hope that helps 🙂
Hi Sharon, what size per candle for the Harlequin set? Also is the price quoted in US$, could this be changed to Euro? Thanks..
What is the scent and wick and wax of the candles? Cotton wicks? Beeswax?
Hi Carlee, you can find a full description of the boxes at the end of the post above, to understand the composition of the scents you are welcome to click here . https://trudon.com/us_en/catalog/category/view/id/14/?size=19
The wax is 100% natural, it is vegetal wax, not beeswax. The wicks are cotton.
I hope that helps
The Harlequin set is comprised of four standard candles, which are 270G or 9.5oz each. Our website functions in US$, and at the current time we do not have a currency conversion available.
I hope that helps
Also, you mentioned in the previous post that postage is included, however, a postage charge to Australia is showing up in the cart – is there a coupon code to remove this? thanks again
Hi Kathryn . I am sorry but we have to apply a small surcharge for shipping costs to Australia. As you can imagine, it is a lot more expensive for us to ship to Australia and New Zealand than to other parts of the world. I am sorry about that!
What is the scent and wick and wax? Cotton wick? Beeswax?
Hi Carla, the scents can be found on the Cire Trudon site here https://trudon.com/us_en/catalog/category/view/id/14/?size=19.
The wicks are cotton, and the wax is 100% natural, no artificial ingredients.
We have added a full description of the boxes above, thank you
Can you please send the cost in euros ? I would like to order for my house in France but I will not be there until the 12 th June.
We’ll follow up with you via email on this 🙂 Keep an eye out for a message from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Molly @ MFCH
