Cire Trudon In-Store Masterclass

Friday October 26 | 10:00am to 11:30am | Kensington Store

$49 per Person | Each attendee will receive a glass of champagne upon arrival

Founded all the way back in 1643, Cire Trudon is the world’s oldest wax-producing factory. Thanks to their unique and specific manufacturing process, Cire Trudon’s wax candles have gathered a cult following over four centuries, with the French brand even producing candles for notable historical figures including Napoleon and Louis XV.

Now, to coincide with the brands’ new Christmas collection, you can experience the refined beauty of these French-made wax candles first-hand with our special Cire Trudon In-Store Masterclass.

Held in the Coffee Shop of our Kensington store on Friday 26th October, the Brand Ambassador for Cire Trudon introduces you to Philae, Amon and Gizeh – the three new candles of the Christmas range that are inspired by ancient hieroglyphs and relive the mystique and glory of the Egyptian Empire.

Tickets for this special event are $49 and each attendee will receive a glass of champagne upon arrival. On the day of the event, you can redeem your $49 reservation on any Cire Trudon candle. In addition to this, you'll also receive a free 100g travel candle valued at $75 with the purchase of any two Cire Trudon candles. Be quick as tickets are sure to sell out!

European Royalty make exclusive visit to Peters of Kensington for charity event

The stunningly beautiful and deeply philanthropic HRH Princess Tatiana, made an exclusive visit to our Kensington store on Tuesday 5th June for a very special presentation and signing of her book, A Taste of Greece. With the Moet champagne flowing and Sydney’s most stylish socialites in attendance, the Princess remained relaxed and composed as she greeted guests and signed copies of her amazing book.

The fashionable aristocrat is the wife of Prince Nikolaos, son of Constantine II, who reigned as King of Greece until the monarchy was abolished in 1973. Close family of Prince Philip, the couple met earlier this month with Prince Charles and Camilla on the royal couple’s official visit to Greece.

Tatiana and Nikolaos were married in 2010 and currently reside in a fashionable inner-city suburb in Athens. The couple married in a three-day celebration on the magical Greek island of Spetses, an event widely described as “The Wedding of the Year” by the international press and attended by a who’s who of royalty, including our own Princess Mary of Denmark.

The Princess’ attitude to her charity work and desire to “make a difference” is reflected in her book, A Taste of Greece, in which she’s partnered with Boroume - an innovative charity founded in 2011 and empowered by passionate volunteers dedicated to ending food waste. The book includes contributions from 36 celebrities who share a love of Greece, including Tatiana Casiraghi, Margaret Atwood, Arianna Huffington and Valentino Garavani.

As a professional photographer, the Prince is in Australia for the inauguration of his exhibition, PHOS: Journey of Light, which has opened at the Hellenic Museum in Melbourne and will run until July 29, 2018. As the Greek word for “light,” Phos is an intriguingly mesmerising examination of the way the special properties of Greek light interplay with the beauty of Greek seascapes.

Furthermore, he is in Australia to support one of his charities, Axion Hellas, which like our Royal Flying Doctor Service, supports vulnerable groups living in remote and inaccessible locations. Due to the unfavourable economic conditions and significant distances from large urban centres, these areas lack easy access to health services, education, infrastructure and cultural activities. Axion Hellas aims to improve, promote and develop the intellectual, cultural, professional and social level of life of those isolated communities.

Peter’s of Kensington has donated $15,000 towards the very worthy charities.

Peter's Pink Ribbon Breakfast

The annual Peter’s of Kensington Pink Ribbon Breakfast bought an extra rosy glow to our store on Thursday, October 26 and it wasn’t just the pretty archway of pink balloons over the doorway.

Our feel good event of the year, which raised an impressive $30,710, was a sell out and a testament to our loyal customers and suppliers who are always keen to get behind the National Breast Cancer Foundation. It’s a cause so close to all of our hearts because we all know someone who’s been touched by breast cancer.

Showing a generosity of spirit in keeping with the Pink Ribbon theme, arriving guests including Real Housewives of Sydney’s Nicole Gazal O’Neil, in a fetching pink dress with hair to match, were presented with crystal flutes of Moet & Chandon with Peter’s of Kensington’ gift bags on every seat. The tables were set with Miranda Kerr’s collection of Royal Albert china and resting on them was an indulgent spread of scones, pastries, cakes and pastries, rivalling even tea at The Ritz.


With a charming duo providing the entertainment, one of the highlights of the day was the raffle with over 100 valuable prizes kindly donated by some of the biggest names in kitchewares, fashion and homewares.

No wonder that all of our guests left happy, judging by the number of pale pink balloons merrily bobbing up and down as they were carried along Anzac Parade following the event. But not to worry if you missed out because the countdown is already on for next year’s Pink Ribbon Breakfast.
