$145.00
By Trudon

Sous un Ciel de Pétales(落英缤纷) Combining jasmine sambac and jasmine grandiflorum – both originating from the Himalayas – and with fresh notes of bergamot, the fragrance of Sous un Ciel de Pétales (Under a Sky of Petals), created by Vincent Ricord, alludes to a floral scene. Its fragrance is supported by base notes of guaiac wood and light touches of incense, which evoke this candle’s connection to the earth. The origin of Sous un Ciel de Pétales’ Chinese name is closely linked to the Qing dynasty poem that Master Tseng has written on the front of Maison des Trois Thés in calligraphy: 桃花源. This refers to the myth of Shangri La, a heavenly valley where peach trees are in full bloom, protected from time and the outside world, the existence of which cannot be revealed if one hopes to ever return there. Those who walk through its gate, just like that of Maison des Trois Thés, have been warned.

Maître Tseng × Trudon


Trudon collaborates with Master Tseng to conceive a collection of three scented candles celebrating the world of tea and its five thousand years of history in China. Yu Hui Tseng comes from a very old Chinese family. She is a descendant of Confucius’ first disciple. As a tea master, she represents both tradition and modernity. Master Tseng spends most of her time in Asia working with exceptional tea producers. More than thirty years ago, she set up her first exploration trips to old tea routes situated in remote regions, to reach primary forests where precious tea leaves are harvested in extreme conditions. As vigilant as she is demanding, Master Tseng orchestrates each stage of the production of her teas. As a bearer of tradition, it is she who, in collaboration with figureheads of the gastronomy sector, brought tea into our modern era. Leading figures such as Alain Senderens or Pierre Gagnaire who became fascinated by the precision and poetry of her perceptions, worked alongside her to create food and tea pairings. In many respects, Master Tseng has revolutionized tea tasting, creating a new school both in Asia and Europe. At the heart of Paris’ Latin Quarter in the early 1990s, Master Tseng created Maison des Trois Thés. It has turned into both the largest tea cellar in the world and a sanctuary for connoisseurs and professionals. In this true library of tea, time stands still: the love for tea-related objects, ancient furniture, old ceramics, rows of plain tea boxes reminiscent of prayer wheels, as well as the calligraphy on its walls embody an age-old art of living where tea is king.
