Bayonne - Cacao, Chilli Pepper, Pine
Part of a ‘A King’s Christmas’ collection, inspired by the opulence of Versailles and the Sun King, Bayonne celebrates Christmas with gourmet notes of chocolate, chilli pepper and pine trees.
A city in the South West of France, during the early 16th century, Bayonne was the first French port through which cacao was imported. It became the first chocolate manufacturing city in the kingdom. Chocolate was introduced to the court of France under Louis the 14th and quickly became a fad that gathered momentum throughout the courts of Europe until today's mass consumption. Chilli pepper was imported from Latin America around the same period as cacao and contrarily to cacao it has remained a specialty of the region. Pine is naturally an homage to Christmas.
Trudon candles are considered to be among the finest scented candles in the world. Made in France since 1643, Trudon are known for their quality and tradition. Like all of their candles, this special Christmas collection is crafted with care. Each vessel is decorated and gold leafed by hand.
