Lily of the Valley
This scent will be discontinued in 2022, so if it is a favourite there are only a limited number now available.
Prolétaire candle offers a festive springtime fragrance. The Lily of the valley fragrance leads our hearts towards hope and gives us a smile. A symbol of French Labour Day, Lilly of the valley was given by Parisian seamstresses to workers and helpers in the early 20th century as a celebration of freedom, good luck, springtime and the balance of a good life: work, leisure and sleep.
The Labor Day observed on 1st May in France is actually the amalgam of several holidays established in the 19th century to celebrate workers (the proletariat). In 1889, in honour of the centennial of the French Revolution, 1st May became associated with labour's fight to obtain an eight-hour workday. In early 20th century Paris, seamstresses gave three sprigs of lily of the valley to their workers and little helpers, but we would have to wait until 1976 to celebrate this day on 1st May.

What makes Cire Trudon candles so magnificent?
They are made with a wax blend that has been perfected over hundreds of years. The unique 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.
When correctly burned, no smoke is emitted from a Trudon candle and no wax is left on the inside of the hand-blown glass.
