Cire Trudon began as a company in 1643 in Paris by a salesman named Claude Trudon. His company grew once he began supplying candles for the French Court and the most important churches. The Trudon company even supplied Versailles until the very end of the monarchy. As Napoleon's wax producer during the Empire, the company survived the arrival of domestic lighting and the birth of the "electric revolution" continuing to prosper. They are now the oldest and most prestigious wax manufacturer in the world.
