When I think “iconic Australia”, the image that springs to mind first and foremost is the aerial view of a handful of white tents set on rich red dunes and grassy plains against a spectacular backdrop of Uluru.

That image of Longitude 131 has always been something of a magical print in my mind. The white tented pavilions are one of the most striking images of luxury eco tourism in Australia and they sit quietly and respectfully in relation to Uluru.

I’m pleased to announce that our Red Centre candle and unisex fragrance oil, Desert Heart, are now stocked at Longitude 131. As a perfumer working in the niche field of natural perfumery, and with a particular focus on telling the story of Australia’s unique native botanicals, I feel very honoured to partner with James and Hayley Baillie of Baillie Lodges in relation to this truly iconic Australian venue.

Stay tuned for further exciting news about our custom fragrance work for Baillie Lodges.

As we all start to plan our spring and summer breaks, and borders open up, now is the perfect time to support Australia’s tourism operators and reconnect with our unique wilderness locations.

This candle encapsulates the sheer energy of Central Australian flora. A bountiful base of desert oak recalls the dry sandy plains that surround Uluru while native grass and wild berry notes signify a kaleidoscopic feast. A subtle hint of native mint bush opens up a quietly spiritual dimension.

During the time I spent at Uluru I had the privilege of meeting an extraordinary group of women who make fibre art, the Tjanpi Desert Weavers. Tjanpi is a social enterprise of the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women’s Council that enables women living in Australia’s remote central desert regions to earn their own income from their individual fibre art.

Tjanpi represents more than 400 female Aboriginal artists from 26 communities on the NPY lands, which cover almost 350,000 square kilometers across the tri-state (WA, SA, NT) border region of Central Australia.

In addition to purchasing their art, we also support Tjanpi by donating 10% of the proceeds from the sale of the Red Centre candle to this amazing group of women.
