hint of citrus from calabria
Brought back from Indochina in 1828, the mandarin-tree has since prospered on the occidental banks of the Mediterranean Sea. Facing the Messina Strait, it sculpts the Calabrian landscape without a touch of bitterness. The mandarin’s softness hints back to ancient times when its essential oils composed an elegant, odorant grammar.

Leave your candle burning until the entire top layer is liquefied, and do that every time you light it. This will allow you to fully enjoy your Cire Trudon candle until the end, by preventing the wax from tunneling. You also want to center the wick back into its original position from time to time (before the wax sets again) and trim it before and after every use
Your candle should not be burned for more than 3 hours at a time during the first third, then for 1 to 2 hours afterward.
