THE BALMAIN X TRUDON CANDLE

SEPTEMBER 2020

Olivier Rousteing, the Creative Director of Balmain, is a long-time fan of Trudon candles. The Ernesto candle is a particular favorite, with Rousteing often relying on the scent for both his home and studio.
Building upon that longstanding relationship, the new Balmain x Trudon candle is the result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses.

In addition to the leathery, Atlas cedarwood, gunpower and cigar notes, the new scent features the mysterious and distinguished addition of a black rose, giving Ernesto a floral and feminine twist.

THE CONTAINER AND PERFUME REFLECT THE DISTINCTIVE SAVOIR-FAIRE AND STYLE OF BOTH BALMAIN & TRUDON

The striking container, inspired by the pattern of Balmain’s iconic marinière, relies on horizontal stripes and the house’s two signature colors: gold and black.
The meticulous creation process relies on an initial hand application of gold leaf upon the clear glass, before it is lacquered in black - resulting in many fine cracks, ensuring that each candle is truly unique.

The limited-edition Balmain x Trudon candle is available in two sizes: Classic (270g) and La Grande Bougie (2,8kg).
