This unique candle has been created to showcase the exceptional beauty of dining at Bennelong in the Sydney Opera House, a site of historic significance to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation where feasting, performance and celebration have taken place for thousands of years.
Act I opens with green spice from native Tasmanian pepper, earthy blackcurrant bud, rich fennel and honeyed wine notes from linden blossom. From this fresh and invigorating introduction the shape of the scent’s smooth curve begins to emerge. As the heart notes in Act II announce their presence, they are led by crisp complex florals from native kunzea l, smooth herbaceous celery seed, and a hint of spice from clove leaf before giving way to subtle citrus from litsea and the warmth of honeysuckle. The base notes of act III take centre stage with soft, creamy, woody notes from native sandalwood, paired with labdanum and cedarwood, before a final overture from lush oceanic moss.
The title is derived from the French verb “Entreprende” meaning “to undertake”.
L’Entrepreneur celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit. Honouring those who undertake risk, chase adventure and provide a source of new ideas and innovation for the betterment of society.
This candle and it's unique fragrance was created in collaboration between Suzie Anderson (of the legendary eponymous homewares stores in the Southern Highlands) and the Raconteur.
A collaboration that began in late 2019, was disrupted by a pandemic, and finally blossomed into this fresh new candle fragrance. This new signature scent celebrates all those individuals, throughout history and today, who have been “in the arena” and found the determination to persevere and reinvent themselves during challenging times.
