This fragrance evokes the pristine wilderness and breathtaking diversity of the Island State, from its rugged mountains and ancient Tarkine rainforest to the long, remote beaches of the Freycinet Peninsula. Native boronia enlivens the mind while lemon myrtle and native pepper suggest refreshment beside a crisp flowing river. Meanwhile, cedarwood imparts a sense of timelessness.
Scent: Spicy, citrus, fruity, green (herbal), smokey, earthy, woody (rich)
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 uniquely fragranced candle tells the botanical story of Hamilton Island, the jewel in the crown of the Whitsunday Islands, located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Sea grass and moss articulate thoughts of a sunrise bushwalk along a coastal path, surrounded by cool moss-covered boulders, while notes of lemon myrtle and native ginger reveal themselves as if carried on the ocean’s breeze. A steep pathway to Passage Peak at the top of the island reveals the spice notes of the trade winds and, as the sweeping island views reveal themselves, hints of native cedar leaf and eucalyptus.
Scent: Spicy, citrus, oceanic, green (sharp), woody (rich)
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.
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.
