For those who have everything: Cire Trudon

Smash a boule puante, or “stink bomb,” from Cire Trudon, and the air will become suffused with a beautiful scent. 

Forget about saving that bottle for a special occasion—not if it’s a boule puante, or “stink bomb,” from Cire Trudon. Each tiny glass vial is filled with a beautiful scent. Smash one, and the air will be “suffused” with an aroma fit for royalty. Cire Trudon, a centuries-old French company, once made candles for Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette, and they came up with this “jolly notion” to show that fragrances can be fun. Each “pretty gold tin” holds 10 boules puantes.
