Founded in 1643, Cire Trudon is the oldest operating candlemaker in France. The official supplier to Versailles under Louis XIV survived the Revolution and retained its cachet during the Empire: Napoleon's sole gift to his infant son was a Cierge Impériale candle encrusted with three gold coins bearing the emperor's likeness. Cire Trudon still makes candles of all sizes and colors, from simple to scented to sculpted busts of Marie Antoinette. A longtime supplier to palace hotels and luxury houses such as Guerlain and Dior, Cire Trudon began producing its own scented candles in 2006. Notes of rum, leather, and tobacco made the Ernesto an instant hit, while the Spiritus Sancti recalls a stroll through Notre-Dame. Herbal and soliflore candles (introduced in 2009) counterbalance such heady offerings with notes of basil, sage, or sandalwood. For those with a special occasion to commemorate, custom candles can be delivered within 48 hours. Upstairs, a minuscule antiquaire presents a hodgepodge of candle-related objects that range from affordable and portable to anything but.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm.
