This candle has been created in collaboration with Lennox Hastie, founder and chef behind Firedoor to capture the warmth and energy of sitting around an open fire and to highlight the fragrant beauty of some of the ingredients Lennox cooks with.
Fresh juniper, fruity davana and rich bitter fennel are extended with green violet leaf, while the citrus heart notes from neroli and petitgrain invigorate the senses. Honeyed facets of native kunzea and spicy pimento make way to vibrant sherry-like characteristics from carrot seed, which slowly reveals a base of native buddawood and guaiacwood before being warmed with rich cepes, earthy tobacco and a smokey pairing of choya and vetiver.
This unique candle was created to capture the essence of dining at one of Australia’s most celebrated restaurants, Quay. Representing the pinnacle of dining, Quay’s unparalleled harbourside location is paired with rare and beautiful ingredients skilfully executed with texture, flavour and harmony.
This candle was handmade at our atelier in Sydney’s northern beaches in collaboration with Quay’s Executive Chef, Peter Gilmore.
With an opening overture of refreshing citrus from bergamot, yuzu and lemon, followed by crisp juniper, subtle coriander leaf and a hint of spice from cumin, this lively palate cleanser is layered and energising. The trio of heart notes emerge, led by the complex floral beauty of native boronia, rich neroli, and herbaceous clary sage before revealing a perfectly balanced base of deep earthy terroir from patchouli, soft wood and spice from guaiacwood, warmth and leather from labdanum before lush oceanic moss to close.
Scent: Citrus, green (fresh), spicy, herbaceous, woody (rich)
This unique candle has been created to capture the celebration of waterfront dining at OTTO. Located on Sydney’s sparkling Woolloomooloo Wharf and on absolute river frontage in Brisbane’s South Bank, OTTO is a beloved dining institution celebrating people, place, and la dolce vita.
A fresh opening entrée of bergamot, Sicilian lemon, juniper and cedar leaf is paired with crisp cypress and galbanum before revealing the classic beauty of rose geranium and lavender. Finally, just like a long leisurely afternoon in the sun, sandalwood, labdanum, patchouli and fir create a warm, lingering embrace.
