When the Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines in New Caledonia in 1840, it was then unknown in Europe. At the end of the 19th century, the noble spiced wood had a beautiful pedigree: called “candana” in Sanskrit, or “sandalwood” in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for hair and body. A remedy for anxiety, it is still enhanced today with the smoke of Asian incense.
From the same Les Belles Matières Collection:
LES BELLES MATIÈRES
A geographical odyssey, Cire Trudon's collection goes back to the origins of rare perfumes: it delves into the hours rich in botanical discoveries and reveals the genesis of great olfactory adventures. Monothematic candles that follow travels and discoveries of enchanted places where raw materials of exquisite beauty are found.
"Les Belles Matières" by Trudon: pure and essential in their form. Like a plant composition, their refined scents orchestrate fruity, woody and floral fragrances. A geographical odyssey that travels into the cradle of rare essences and reveals the genesis of great olfactory adventures. A memory of distant lands runs through the entire collection, whose doors are represented by the midnight blue of the glass that contains the fragrances. Emilie Bouge, with the well-known perfume house Robertet, created the fragrances. The perfumes speak a contemporary language and express in an absolute and clear way a great truth: «Les Belles Matières», the beautiful (raw) materials.
This fragrance was selected thanks to the partnership between Danilo Cascella Premium Store and Campomarzio70
