Remember the gorgeous fashion and furnishings in Sophia Coppola's Marie Antoinette? Now you can get in on a little French history by purchasing what lit her last moments: Cire Trudon candles. The iconic brand, launched back in 1643 in Paris, is now setting up shop in NYC. Back in the day, Cire Trudon candles were used in churches, royal courts, even prisons—like the one where Marie Antoinette stayed before her execution on Oct, 16 1793! The new boutique's decor is inspired by the Galerie des Glaces at Versaille. Stop by 54 Bond St. and check out the expansive candle selection, chandeliers, snuffers, and candlesticks. Off with the lights!
