MADEMOISELLE DE LA VALLIÈRE
Almost a contradiction to the senses, the first delightful fragrance of elegant sweet citrus is quietly complimented by deeper floral notes. It moves into some downright sensual aromas in Tubebrose and ylang-ylang. As complex as the woman herself, this is a candle that is well suited to a boudoir or intimate space.
The secret powers of a bare flower for the love of Louis XIV, Melle de La Vallière surrounded herself with a bastion of sweet and shattering intensity of tuberoses. Damp fragrance of an intoxicating love : from the King’s bedroom to her convent, Louise de la Vallière personifies this deeply sensual flower, whose plump and overwhelming scents represent true, dazzling and almost spiritual love.
Françoise Louise de la Vallière was secretly in love with King Louis XIV, who made her one of his favourites. She bore him four children in the utmost secrecy. She crowded her bed with tuberoses to quell the queen's suspicions “...by inhaling these scents that were so dangerous to her condition, she thought she was risking her life, but she hoped to save her honour”... (excerpted from "La Duchesse de Lavallière" by Stéphanie Félicité de Genlis). Abandoned for Athénaïs de Montespan who took her place in the king's heart, she retired to Carmel and became “Sister Louise of Mercy”.Top notes
THE MAGNIFICENCE OF CIRE TRUDON CANDLES
What makes Cire Trudon candles so special is the fact that they are made with a wax that has been perfected over hundreds of years. The unique wax blend ensures that the candle burns cleaner and longer with exceptional scent diffusion and cleaner burning. The natural waxes also ensure that the candles are more sustainable than synthetic candles. The pure cotton wicks and the fact that Cire Trudon candles contain no pesticides or heavy metals, ensure that the candles are green and safe. Cire Trudon candles are also biodegradable. The paraffin-free wax made with soy oils, rice and copra, ensure that the candle is less harmful than other candles laced with synthetic products and toxins.
