Today has been my Balmain day. The beautiful pieces of the new Barbie® x Balmain capsule collection have finally arrived in Gstaad as well as this beautiful candle from the newest collaboration of the French Maison with Trudon.
Building upon that long-standing relationship, Balmain’s Creative Director Olivier Rousteing, who is a long-time fan of famous candle maker, has created together with Emilie Bouge, Perfumer at Robertet Paris, the new Balmain x Trudon candle. This beautiful result of a unique partnership between the two Parisian houses, reflects the distinctive savoir-faire and style of both Balmain and Trudon.
The scent is absolutely addictive!
Bouge concocted an expert floral and feminine flourish for Ernesto’s masculine Atlas cedarwood, gunpower and cigar notes, relying on the mysterious and distinct touch of a black rose, in order to create the ideal olfactory reflection of Rousteing’s twenty-first century Balmain.
