Jackie Kennedy brought Rigaud candles to the White House. Halston always had one or two burning on his desk or coffee table. And Frank Sinatra would only have Rigaud candles in his homes. Now you too can have access to these amazing French luxury candles.
I started buying Rigaud during the quarantine. I was sick of buying candles that barely smelled. From the minute I opened the box, the fragrance was lingering. Not overpowering just a really beautiful smell. I bought Jackie’s favorite the Cyprus. A blend of the aromatic sweetness of lavender, the woody, crisp notes of pine needles, and the powerful aroma of cedar wood. It smells heavenly. Recently, I have been burning Rose and it is incredible.
Rigaud Paris candles are considered by many to be the finest, most elegant, and highest quality candles made in the world today. Each candle is hand-poured and inspected to insure a premium quality product. Rigaud candles burn evenly, without leaving any deposit on the glass and they do not tunnel, unlike hard wax candles.

If you want to sample a candle, I would recommend the small size with the wick cutter. This fragrance is Cythere. It consists of fruity notes reveal hints of jasmine, delicate and transparent, on a slightly musky backdrop. This candle has 23 hours of fragrance.
Here is the Reine de la Nuit candle. Reine de la Nuit (Queen of the Night) is a light and sensual fragrance created around a lavish and mysterious flower. A heady oriental scent like an evening melody.
This scent is Jasmine Green Water. Part of Rigaud’s Single Flower Family, Jasmin has a fresh essence of bitter orange and jasmine petals mixed with the sweet, mellow warmth of the orange blossom. Ideal for spring and summer months.
This is the Lilas Mauve. Lilas is a part of Rigaud’s Single Flower Fragrance Family which focus on a single flower whose fragrance stirs strong emotions, such as rose, jasmine, or lilac. This Lilas candle has all the delicacy of fresh springtime lilas, with touches of the green freshness of Lily of the Valley and a touch of powdered ylang-ylang.

I saved the best for last. This is Jackie’s and Halston’s favorite, Cypres. Cypres is a part of Rigaud’s Aromatic Fragrance Family which brings the freshness of the Mediterranean forests into your home. Introduced to the White House by Jacqueline Kennedy in 1960, this is a blend of lavender, the woody, crisp notes of pine needles, and the aroma of cedar wood.
