This candle and its unique fragrance tell the story of Australian artist Del Kathryn Barton and her exhibition “The Highway Is A Disco” at the National Gallery Victoria in Melbourne. Australian native botanicals including salt bush, river gum and wild herbs recall joyful childhood summers the artist spent in her mother’s South Coast garden, while bergamot, bay leaf and rose nod to her formative years in Sydney. The resulting scent, both delicate and richly layered, is a story of quiet beauty, the comfort of ancient trees and the celebration of a life well lived.

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.
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.
