This richly layered candle traces a line from the thrumming laneways of inner-city Melbourne to the wild and rugged shore of Port Phillip Bay, where native flora thrives. A trio of white cypress, wattle and kunzea conjures images of Melbourne’s crisp autumn nights and a delicate geranium leaf note nods to the city’s splendid gardens.
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 the Cooks Shed, located on a magnificent sunny ridge overlooking the upper Hawkesbury River at Sackville.
With a zesty opening of lemon and bergamot followed by a crisp herbaceous trio of basil, rosemary and thyme, the top notes linger with a refreshing greeting of native eucalyptus. The heart notes quietly reveal themselves with the soothing tones of green tea and jasmine before giving way to the rich warm embrace of tanka bean, oakmoss and labdanum.

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.

A coastal oasis peppered with close intimate valleys, hinterland wineries, rugged shores dotted with seaside villages and a thick green blanket of native forest. Cooling breezes from Bass Strait blow clouds away and allow sunshine to work its magic in creating colour, tannins and aromatics. Old vines cascade with pinot noir and pinot gris and sit quietly on ancient rich red volcanic soils.
A fresh opening from juniper, angelica root, pink pepper and kelp act as a spicy palate cleanser before a slow avalanche of native kunzea and its warm honeyed tones is met with sage and crisp native white cypress. Strength and poise are provided by a dense forest of Australian sandalwood, cedarwood, vetiver and birch tar.
This gentle and considered scent aims to showcase the vitality and terroir of the vineyards of this exceptional wine region located an hour south-east of Melbourne.
