Candle lovers, beautiful candles lovers, isn’t this Marie Antoinette candle by Cire Trudon a true object of desire? Made of pink hand-sculpted wax, it’s a replica of the bust of Marie Antoinette exposed at Musée du Louvre of Paris.
Cire Trudon is a brand of candles started in 1643 by Claude Trudon which supplied candles for Versailles until the end of the Ancient Regime, so Marie Antoinette’s candles were manifactured by Cire Trudon, even if at that time the company wasn’t named this way. In fact it became Cire Trudon in 2007.
This candle is, obviously, a decorative object. How could you burn something so beautiful? It’s available at Trudon, too, also in other colors (black, grey, stone and white) and it’s part of the busts collection (the ex-voto, I love it! But it’s not a bust).
