S.T. Dupont lighters

Exceptional savoir faire...

The story behind French maison S.T. Dupont is a story of producing the finest luxury products, a story of a design atelier where innovation and ideas are brought to life and where quality rings true. Everything starts in 1872, when 25-year-old Simon Tissot Dupont, former photographer to Napoleon III, opens a small luggage and leather goods workshop in rue de Dieu, Paris. Soon enough the highest social circles start discovering his finely crafted creations, and the personalised travel trunks with bespoke detailing soon became an essential accessory for the European elite.

The S.T. Dupont family starts since to expand their business even further, opening different factories all around France to cater for an ever-growing demand for their luxury articles. In 1929, S.T. Dupont joins Louis Cartier in New York to sell his travel cases at the Cartier boutique on Fifth Avenue, becoming an instant success on an international level. It was not until 1941 when S.T. Dupont created his first luxury lighter, an exquisite solid gold piece ordered by the Indian Maharajah of Patiala. The French brand will continue to collaborate with celebrities and personalities for many years, and will become a true symbol of success and luxury worldwide.

S.T. Dupont is nowadays focused on the creation of the finest writing articles, accessories and lighters. At Iguana Sell we are especially proud of our S.T. Dupont luxury lighter collection, so we have prepared this blog post to explain you in detail what makes the French brand so one-of-a-kind special.

The classics

The Ligne 2 or L2 is the quintessential S.T. Dupont lighter. These iconic lighters of balanced proportions and pure lines open with a “cling” easily recognised by those in the know. The Ligne 2 lighter features a gentle flame, a double flame or a flat torch flame depending on the model, but always of a yellowish color. The Ligne 2 lighters are handcrafted to become that classic piece to be inherited, a true object of desire of exceptional value and quality.

Over the years, the Ligne 2 collection has progressively expanded into other lines that have as well become classics on their own. Some of our favorites are the Slim7 collection (the world’s slimmer luxury lighters), the E-Slim collection (the first luxury electric lighter without gas) and the Initial collection (inspired by the creation of the first luxury petrol lighter).

Ergonomic design and slender curves characterize the S.T. Dupont Maxijet lighter collection. The Maxijet lighters are that contemporary yet classic piece with a touch of masculinity, the perfect companion for your everyday use. Their highly functional design with a powerful torch flame allows efficient lighting in all conditions.

The Minijet collection equals the Maxijet in quality and functionality but in a pocket and more portable size. Coming in a range of highly fashionable colors, the mini lighters achieve the same quality of flame and materials as their maxi version.



Défi Extrême

Without any doubt, S.T. Dupont most innovative, technical and avant-garde collection. Innovative design meets high-performance engineering to challenge the natural elements. The Défi Extrême lighters are tough enough to withstand winds of up to 25 miles/hour and stay ultimately reliable at even the most extreme temperatures and altitudes. It is also worth mentioning the S.T. Dupont Défi XXtreme collection, even more element-defying than the original. The XXtreme lighters feature two powerful flames 2732 ºF and a special pyramidal angle for better wind resistance (resistant to winds of 44 miles/hour). It lights at high altitudes (up to 3500 m) and works perfectly in both low (14ºF) and high temperatures (113ºF).
