I got very excited about the Cire Trudon Scented Matches when I first saw them – I was in a hotel lounge so couldn’t exactly start sparking them up. I thought that when you strike them you get a burst of fragrance instead of that sulphur scent, but no. That was me being thick and not thinking it through. That’s not what happens, so actually, my own fault entirely, they’re not as exciting as I thought!
However, I think they’re meant for those who love the ritual of fragrance, who really get it about the specialness of scents (Cire Trudon candles are £50++) and just take a whole lot of pleasure and care in how they scent their home. What does actually happen when you open the box is that you get a waft of fragrance and not match. Some of the matches are the same scent as some of the candles so I guess it’s a way to heighten the ritual by starting it before the flame itself.
So, despite the fact that they’re not quite the magic matches I’d first thought, I still think if you know a candle afficionado, they’re a lovely gift.
Cire Trudon Scented Matches are £15 but I’ve spotted them on offer as a GWP with candle HERE.

Oh damn! When I read the title I made exactly the same assumption. That would have been genius!
Quick, patent that idea, Jane, before someone steals it! I’d definitely buy matches that gave off fragrance on lighting them!
I don’t think you can get round the sulphur thing needed to make fire!
