    Possibly my favourite scent in the world

    This was my first glasshouse candle amd omg... i fell in love hard. These products smell ridiculously good and this candles scent is so soothing yet fresh. It travelled into my lift area outside the apartment and was beautiful to wake up with. Didnt last full time as advised even with following all steps. Worth it either way!

    Money Wise spent!

    I noticed Glasshouse Candle in Sydney Fashion week, about 7 year back. Since then i have been buying them. My personal favorite is Night before Christmas ( dancing sugar plums- Red candle). Over the year i have tried, Tahaa, caracus, Fragapini, Monte Garden. Its money well spent for this product as the market is full of fragrance candles. The quality is consistent, and its built to last long. A 350gm ( large would easy last upto 4-6 months ( i burn them almost every day for 1-2 hour) If you still hvnt bought one, buy it as you will love it!

    My not-so-secret indulgence...

    I first came across Glasshouse Fragrances years ago when I was door-knocking for a charity. At one particular house, a lady opened the door to her home and the most amazing fragrance wafted out and consumed my senses... I asked her what that amazing smell was and she brought me the box of this Glasshouse Bora Bora candle. The moment I got home, I looked it up and found the nearest retailer to purchase one. Ever since then, I have been buying Glasshouse Fragrances on a regular basis, even if it broke my budget! I have tried very many of the different fragrances and loved them all. But my all time favourite has always been Bora Bora. It freshens up my entire house and creates a feeling of zen and peace. I recommend it to anyone and everyone at any opportunity! Glasshouse needs to bring out a 700g version of this!

    Bright citrus note, warm undertones. It is a light scent that is non offensive for work, or perfect to set alight when cleaning the house. Found friends can't identify the cilantro,the orange is the most obvious scent. I really like this candle for an energizing choice.

    quality could be improved

    had Glasshouse candles before and had been pleased with the fragrence,length of burning time and quality. But this candle had 2 large bubbles in wax on the side of the container. Delivery times were very slow as I had ordered a diffuser and I had a lot of difficulty actually tracking where the goods were. It was a disappointing experience buying on line and I was looking forward to arrival as I had loved candles in the past

    I absolutely adore this candle. It is fresh and simple and reminds me of the beach and long summers spent swimming and sailing in the tropics!

    MY ISLAND HOME

    If your dreaming of the tropics and are long overdue for that exotic island holiday, then this is the perfect fragrance. Sit and close your eyes and this scent will take you away to the perfect summer beach holiday. Crisp and Zesty, hints of citrus filling the air as you imagine sipping a cocktail next to an endless crystal blue ocean on a pristine white sandy coastline. This is the bottled version of Bora Bora. If you cant take the much deserved break that you need, then this is second to none. Let your mind travel as your body relaxes and calms itself after long days in the office. Take a holiday without leaving your room.

    Home becomes a holiday

    My first Bora Bora candle came from my mother for a birthday present around four years ago - I have always loved (read: completely obsessed over) all things citrus and cilantro. I used it almost every day - it's such a lovely, fresh scent that can somehow both relax me when I'm stressed and perk me up when I'm tired - and it has become a staple in my life. It's a really soothing scent for a headache, too! When I moved to the other side of the world last year I made sure to take a 350g one with me and it lasted almost the entire time I was away - it ran out two weeks before I came back and I definitely missed it during even that short time! It was great to light when I was feeling a little homesick - the distinctive scent would instantly deliver that rare sensation of feeling completely at home . For me, this candle doesn't encapsulate Bora Bora (I've never even been there), but the feeling of contentment and unwinding that can really only be experienced when you first arrive home and walk in the door - it makes me feel at home anywhere. In terms of quality, this product is second to none in terms of both packaging and the candle itself. The thick glass jar is strong and the lid fits snugly and securely - and they're also great to re-use! I always keep glasshouse jars when the candle is finished to use as vases for fresh flowers. The triple scenting of the candle really makes a difference, too; I find the scent lasts longer and somehow seems to permeate a room better than other candles. This is a candle I will buy for the rest of my life!

    The Fastest Way to Satisfy Your Bouts of Wanderlust

    Close your eyes and take a moment to feel the balmy air around you, the smell of coconut trees and of the woven bamboo. Hear the sounds of the smooth French words spoken by the locals as you squint your eyes at the shimmer of the turquoise ocean ahead. Mmm, Bora Bora… Now, I’m sorry to disrupt you, but it’s time to snap back to reality. Like me, I’m sure you are sitting in your office or at home, thinking about what could be if you’re senses were actually in that state. However, just like me I’m sure you haven’t quite saved up enough money to really live it. That’s where Glasshouse Fragrances comes in. Thanks to their copious research and dedication in bringing us the most delectable fragrances in the form of candles, diffusers and body products, more and more people are able to satisfy at least some of the five senses without the hefty price tag. Let me start off with the most important; smell. Glasshouse Candles have managed to capture the true essence of a summer holiday through the perfect combination of cilantro and orange zest, mixed in with a touch of orange blossom, clementine, galbanum resin and vanilla bean. Yes, we’ve all seen the images on Google with those bungalows sitting atop the shimmering water but seeing as they haven’t yet invented a ‘scratch and sniff this image’ app Glasshouse Fragrances is the only way to go to accompany you in your daydream. As you might gather, Glasshouse Fragrances’ key is to satisfy smell; hence the name ‘fragrances’, however, it also manages to touch on the rest of the four senses and here’s how; Sound: the ever so subtle sound of the wick sparking as you first light up your candle is almost like being on a holiday. At home it’s not so easy to just start a massive bonfire to experience this sound, so Glasshouse Fragrances does it for you. Touch: I wouldn’t suggest actually touching the hot wax as it burns but honestly, touch it when it’s cool. Glasshouse Candles only uses non-toxic wax and you can really feel the quality of it- it’s creamy and so pure! Taste: ok, you got me on this one. I can’t say I’ve ever tasted a Glasshouse Candle (not that I’ve never thought about it, trust me I have!). But if you really must, I would suggest bringing out your best silver platter and putting on it one orange, some coriander (cilantro), a clementine (for those of you who don’t know it’s a type of mandarin), a vanilla bean and for a little garnish, the orange blossom. There you go, Bora on a platter! Sight: I couldn’t finish my list without first talking about how Glasshouse satisfies sight. Glasshouse Fragrances have been leaders in providing Australian handmade candles and as stated above has truly satisfied! But probably one of the best things about the Glasshouse Fragrances brand (besides the scent) is their packaging! To be honest, that’s what makes you pick it up over all of the other brands on the shelf of your local boutique or David Jones store. The simplicity of the designs truly resonates with the simplicity of the brand and the entire Glasshouse Fragrances range. That special turquoise blue of the Bora box and the label sure caught my eye and what’s even better is that it fits in perfectly with my décor. To top it off, Glasshouse has thought of the environment AND our pockets, by allowing the glass jars to be re-useable, almost as if it’s our little souvenir of the ‘holiday’ we just took! I am a self-proclaimed lover of the Bora Bora Glasshouse Fragrances Candle. If you still aren’t convinced and are undecided on which fragrance to choose, then I would suggest Googling ‘Bora Bora’. … [Please open Google Images and type in Bora Bora] There you go. I hope that’s convinced you.

    Bora Bora is my all time bucket list destination. This candle scent makes me feel like I am in the tropics, relaxing on a hammock with a good book. The slight hint of orange makes me crave fresh juice and summer sun! A candle to put on when you've had a terrible day, and it takes you away to Bora Bora. Blissful.

    Bliss in a jar

    I absolutely LOVE Bora Bora. It was my first ever Glasshouse purchase years ago, and although I purchase several candles to have around the home, this one is my absolutely favourite. It reminds me of many fond memories of my travels throughout the years, each trip to a different exotic island location. It is fresh and zesty and NEVER fails to put a smile on my face. Nothing pleases me more than burning these throughout my house on a daily basis, especially before guests arrive. It is my pick me up and always leaves a smile on my face.

    Bora Bora at Home

    After purchasing this candle not long ago, I feel like I don't need to go to Bora Bora anymore as the smell is right in my home. The beautiful citrus scent is both relaxing and playful and is the perfect scent for any occasion. Feeling my home with this scent brings a feel of ocean and sand at any time of the year. The large jar is a perfect reusable to fill with seashells and other souvenirs from the beach and is accompanied with a beautiful yet simple box. Glasshouse candles have never let me down, but Bora Bora brings an increasing desire to own the whole Glasshouse collection.

    Summer citrus

    If you are a fan of scented candles, you are sure to love the Glasshouse brand. Packaged in beautiful reusable glass jars with a glass lid, they are available in small and large sizes. They aren't cheap, but then they don't smell cheap either! The fragrances are rich and true and last long after the candle is extinguished. Bora Bora was the first Glasshouse candle I ever purchased and it is still one of my favourites. It has a zesty, citrus scent which is crisp and fresh. It's perfect for summer as it's not too heavy. If you love candles, or are looking for a luxe gift, do yourself a favour and try Glasshouse. They are Australian made and one of my personal faves.

    A Tropical Island Escape

    Glasshouse make the most beautiful candles and in my opinion are second to none. The packaging is refined and elegant perfect for gift giving. I have just finished burning my BORA BORA candle and have repurchased. The candle fragranced my entire house. The scent was delightful to me, it smelt watery and of ozone it transported me too a distant faraway desert island. This candle is truly extraordinary

    Summer Days

    My absolute favourite glasshouse candle so far. The combination of cilantro (corriander) and orange zest could not be more perfect. Even my boyfriend who hates corriander, loves this candle! The strength of the wax (triple scented) means you only have to burn it once every few days to keep your house smelling like a holiday in paradise. Once the candle is done use the empty jar to store goods in the bathroom. I have (and will) purchased again and again.

    Coconut Oil, Warm Sand, String Bikinis, Poolside Service- the Bora Bora experience

    There's something sensual and sexy about Bora Bora, evoking fond memories of poolside shenanigans and escapades. Bora Bora is strong and sexy, bold and daring. If you are a winter person, this scent is not for you. As for me (a self-confessed Summer lover), i love Bora Bora. For strength, i'd give it 5 stars (up there with Rio, Tahaa, Montego and Leura). *Bora Bora is perfect for a summer BBQ, a pool party, a casual lunch outside by the pool. This fragrance encapsulates everything there is to love about summer.

    You open the Bora Bora box, take the lid off, close your eyes & take a big breath in.. You feel like you're right there, laying in a hammock, listening to the palm trees in the wind. Its zesty orange smell just highlights & refreshes any room its in. Weekends are my favourite time to light this beauty as I leave it burning all day & it circulates the whole house. Although I have many other scents in the Glasshouse Range, Bora Bora is my absolute favourite scent in the Glasshouse Destination Collection.

    Strong frangrance

    When smelt unlit, this scent seems lovely and light. However, I found that when lit, this fragrance can become slightly overpowering and sharp. It is lovely to have lit in an open area, but beware lighting it in an enclosed space. Otherwise it obviously has excellent throw and lasting power.

    perfect candle to burn on a lovely spring or summers day

    Second favourite candle of mine in the Glasshouse Destination range - I am always alternating between the Bora Bora & Amalfi Coast candles. I love the lightness yet intoxicating fruity summer scent of this candle. I love burning it when I have guests over for lunch during spring - and I'm always asked what perfume I'm wearing when in actual fact it's the wonderful Glasshouse Candle. I love burning my candles at night to fill the house with lingering beautiful scents & this doesn't disappoint.

    it's light and fruity summery scent
