I don't want to tell people though cos I want to keep the secret to myself. I will be back for more!!! Definitely recommend.

    A candle that works!

    There is nothing I personally hate more than paying top dollar for a nice candle, only to take it home and burn it to realize that the smell 1) doesn't last or 2) isn't strong enough to smell at least 2 meters away from the burning candle. This candle however ticks all these boxes, I have only just purchased this candle a few days ago and I already want to go back and buy more, The smell lingers through my entire house, including down near the front door when my candle is burning in kitchen (which is at the opposite end of the house), I definitely recommend anyone to buy this candle, although its somewhat pricey, you definitely do get your moneys worth!

    Smells delicious

    Awesome candle with a delightful juicy fruity smell. Burns nicely, looks fantastic. I had one disappointment and that was that I bought several candles with the intention of giving some away as gifts. However they were sent in a box that was quite large with only some brown paper as packaging and the candle boxes were dented and crushed in the corners and edges making them look a bit second hand and shabby and I did not really want to give them away looking like that. In saying that, the inside product was undamaged and absolutely fine, perhaps better packaging and a box that fits the product better would have helped.

    My favourite thing about this product is:

    the smell and the colour!

    Response from Glasshouse Fragrances:  Thanks for the review and sorry that you've had an issue with your packaging. I've sent you an email to see if I can help to get to the bottom of this for you.

    The Girl From Ipanema Beach

    Dear Glass House Candles, Another absolute credit to your team for the destination Candle Collection it is just scent-sational! My favourite homewares shop has a huge shrine dedicated to your products and this amazing colour of bright Tangerine just stands out in the candle crowd. The smell is just such an incredible punch to your senses of tropical fruit paradise you can not help be transported to Ipanema Beach Rio Brasil known for its elegance and incredible nightlife. I highly recommend this intense yet smooth joyful candle to anyone wanting to feel summer through the home play some Bossa Nova music whilst enjoying the tripple scent of paradise. If you find yourself putting on your bikini and wanting to play the bongos singing when my baby smiles at me... blame it on Rio for giving you such a happy feeling of pure summer morning noon and night. Well done Glass House Fragrances 10 stars ********** eternally greatful for all your work into such an amazing company Joey x

    happy vibrant pick me up

    Better late than ever, this is my first ever purchase of a Glasshouse Fragrance candle. It was a big decision for me and it was great at the Broadway Sydney pop up store, I was able and did sniff every candle fragrance. I chose Rio de Janeiro as it is very fragrant and fruity and different to the use just floral candles.. I wanted to add joy and vibrancy and energy to my new apartment. Rio does this and makes me feel happy. It is nice to burn a couple of hours when I come home from work and when I have projects to do eg housework, computer work.

    The perfect way to welcome guests

    I was so happy when I received this candle for my birthday, as my favourite holiday ever was in Brazil! I love the vibrant orange colour, and the wonderful fruity aroma that fills the house when I light the candle. I always light this candle when I'm expecting guests to visit my home, and it never fails to draw lots of compliments from my visitors about the passionfruit and lime fragrance. My aunt always jokes that she is going to visit 'me and my candle again!'

    This is my favourite candle in the whole world! I come in from a hard shift as a palliative care & dementia nurse and the scent in my home wafts at me and all my troubles disappear! It takes me back to holidays overseas and carefree nights under the stars. I adore the vibrant colour as its so uplifting and the scent is to die for. It is in every room in my home! Thank you Glasshouse, your products are amazing and the candle doesn't even have to be lit to fill the air with gorgeousness! Lasts longer than any other scented candle brands!

    I have never tried Glasshouse candles before so I bought a small sized Rio De Janeiro to "test the waters" in my home.This fragrance instantly reminds me of a fruity, juicy drink that I just can't get enough of and have to keep smelling to quench my (noses') thirst. It is tropical and fruity, yet sweet and divine. For a little candle, it sure does fill my home with the most refreshing passionfruit fragrance! I am so disappointed that I didn't buy one in full size! This was my first Glasshouse candle and will definitely not be my last! I want to try them all!

    Peace and Serenity

    My husband received the candle as a present. Orange is his favourite colour and I found it weird at first to contain Passionfruit and Lime. Once lit it brought peace and calmness to the house. It permeates into every room and you just want all your senses to experience the aroma. When the candle is not lit I walk past it and lift the lid just to smell its aroma. It's like a fruit bowl in a jar that just needs to be eaten. With Christmas coming upon us I just had to buy a few more candles from the range to share with family members and the children's teachers. I hope they enjoy their presents as much as I enjoy my husbands present.

    Tropical oasis: Feels like a mouth watering drink on a boiling hot day

    Whenever i sniff Rio i can't help but salivate. The Passionfruit is strong and bold, making it hard to resist thinking the glass is not a drink, but in fact a candle. Rio is very strong- it will fill up the whole house with its tropical ambiance. It's cool, refreshing and fruity- it's gender neutral, day and night I have 6 spare Rios locked up in the event the world comes to an end- (ok I'm being dramatic)

    Homesick Cure

    I've been a fan of Glasshouse fragrances ever since moving to Australia five years ago. I've swooned over each of their fragrances, but when once I found the Rio de Janeiro range I knew it was love of first sight. Rio is my hometown,and at the first sign of homesickness all I need to do is indulge in this fragrance and instantly it takes me back to carnival, beaches and samba music.

    Husband friendly

    Finally a candle I can burn to my hearts content without my husband complaining that it's giving him a headache... The smell is fruity and light. It transports me to a relaxing tropical paradise where I'm sipping cocktails on the beach. For a more subtle smell I don't even have to light the candle. I just open the lid of the jar and the delicious scent slowly fills the room. When the candle is lit the smell is divine and fills my whole house and fills my whole house quickly. I have only recently discovered Glass House Candles and I am extremely impressed with the quality of the product. The beautiful packaging makes these candles a wonderful gift. Having been regularly disappointed with scented candles that smell lovely until they are lit, I am glad to have found a scrumptious smelling candle that does not disappoint.

I have always had an obsession with fruity citrus smells and after finding this I can finally let anyone who comes to my house enjoy the candle! It sits by my front door and as people enter the first thing they smell when coming inside it this beautiful candle. What other candle makes you want to dance around like you are in a carnival!

    A trip to Rio de Janeiro... in a jar.

    Now it's important to note, I'm not a fan of the colour orange but I'm glad I put that aside and lifted the lid all the same to sample this scent. And boy am I glad that I did, I've never looked back since. The only orange thing I willingly buy is the Rio de Janeiro candle - I can barely put into words the feeling it gives me. Uplifts a funky work mood, puts a spring in my step and motivates me to no end - just like a Rio de Janeiro holiday would no doubt - and all for under $40. I like to buck the trend and keep one of these out all year 'round instead to burn throughout the seasons. Absolutely stunning, like having spring and summer holiday in a jar xx

    Rio de Janeiro, Fun, Indulgance!

    Have you have ever during a particularly busy day when you are being pulled every which way, thought ' I could really just disappear for a few hours, a day, even more? ' Possibly the closest thing to that would be lighting my Rio candle and pouring a glass of fresh crisp white, some fun South American music (Ricky Martin works well) and my imagination carries me away. It is indulgent to the senses ! Tropical yet fresh, so perfect.

    I cannot rave about this candle enough. I get some many compliments from family and friends. The fragrance is strong and lasting but not overpowering which is a plus. It states passionfruit and lime but I get hints of mango. When you first smell this candle it is rather sweet but once lit the deeper aromas shine through.
