Cire Trudon Tadine Candle
Sensuality of sandalwood
When Englishman Edward Foxhall discovered sandalwood on the Isle of Pines, New-Caledonia, in 1840, it was, then, unknown in Europe. By the end of the 19th Century, the noble spiced wood had quite a pedigree: named ‘candana’ in Sanskrit, or ‘sandal’ in Arabic, it was used as a precious ointment for the hair and body. A remedy against anxiety, it still billows today, seamlessly embedded in the smoke of Asian incense.
Tadine is the principal town of Maré Island in the Loyalty Archipelago, New Caledonia. Its steep coast shelters one of the best sandalwood reserve of the island. Between maritime pines and translucent waters, marine fragrances/scents blend with sandalwood’s elegance, at the heart of island legends.
