Matches are a crucial component of the Cire Trudon experience. With a single strike, they set the wick ablaze, casting light and shadow into motion. Each match is delicately scented, serving as a prelude to the tales that the candles will tell. Long and slender, they rest within their illustrated boxes, waiting patiently for their chance to shine. When left slightly ajar, the box infuses the matches with a subtle fragrance, adding a touch of aroma to any drawer, cupboard, or study.
The mandarin tree was brought to the Mediterranean region from Indochina in 1828 and has thrived there ever since. It graces the Calabrian landscape, facing the Messina Strait, and does so without any bitterness. The gentle nature of the mandarin harkens back to the past, when its essential oils were used to create a refined and aromatic language.
