Shopper’s Diary: Cire Trudon Opens in New York

Francesca Connolly October 29, 2010

Modelled after the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, the first US outpost of venerable Paris-based candle makers Cire Trudon is located belowground at 54 Bond Street (within the landmark Bouwerie Lane Theater building), in an atmospheric lair done up with a mix of aged French-made mirrors, vintage finds from Brimfield, and furniture made by Amish craftspeople. The impossible-to-resist fragrances include Roi Soleil (featuring "vapors of wax, candelabras, and palace"), La Marquise ("powdered air of a delicious boudoir"), and Carmelite ("perfume of mossy old stonewalls"). Go to Cire Trudon to view the range.

N.B. The candles are available online through Barney's New York.
