The crashing surf and lush tropical forests of Byron Bay come enlivened in this distinctive fragrance, which blends bold and salty botanicals including cinnamon myrtle, native thyme and lemon myrtle. Rosalina imparts depth and soul, bringing to mind the invigorating climb from Palm Valley up to Australia’s eastern frontier, Cape Byron.

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)
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.
Handmade in Sydney’s northern beaches by The Raconteur in collaboration with Ingrid Bowen.
Scent: Citrus, green (fresh), floral, earthy, woody (rich)
The title is derived from the French verb “Entreprende” meaning “to undertake”.
L’Entrepreneuse 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.
