This candle has been created in collaboration with Lennox Hastie especially for 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.
Introducing a new multi-sensory collaboration between the Raconteur and Australian visual artist, Ingrid Bowen. This new work has been produced to coincide with the show PEREGRINE which opens on 6 May 2021 at Suki & Hugh Gallery, Bungendore, NSW.
From dry scrubby bush to golden hills peppered with native grass and tall eucalypt forests, the journey across Australia’s ancient pathways is where we witness the pace of nature: patience, growth, renewal. Giant sandstone boulders and meandering creeks offer shelter and provide moments of reflection. It is here that the voyage turns inwards and nature’s resilience signals to us the values of perseverance and optimism.
With a refreshing opening of lemon myrtle, crisp eucalyptus and rich galbanum, this invigorating start to the olfactive journey is met with greetings from a comforting floral trio of kunzea, Kimberley heath and geranium. Finally, the warm embrace of sandalwood, patchouli and cedarwood welcomes the traveller home.

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.
