One thing our customers love about each range of Glasshouse Fragrances is the scent story that swirls around each distinctive object – part olfactory ambience; part fantasy. But how about the backstory behind the backstory? There’s always a tale to tell, and ‘tis the season to share …
THE SEASON FOR KEEPING
Behind the velvet rope at Glasshouse Fragrances as we prepare our new Christmas Campaign - with a twist
Cue the sleigh rides and Christmas cheer; it’s time for you and yours to gather around the tree, and no-one loves a jingling bell more than we do…
Glasshouse Fragrances co-founder Nicole Eckels grew up intoxicated - like any New Yorker - by the smell of roasting chestnuts and fresh pine needles in the air as street sellers proudly displayed Christmas wares. As the season waves its magic wand over the world, New York celebrates like no other city: carols at The Waldorf, ice-skating at Rockefeller Centre, a cityscape carpeted in magical fairy lights.
Suffice it to say, Nicole’s pretty nuts about Christmas.
So we like to go all out, creating limited edition Christmas Candles, Diffusers & Gift Sets that capture everything we love about the holiday season, in all its glittery glory. Our mantra is to create the perfect gift – be it a gorgeous triple scented candle or adorable miniature trio.
Like kids in the candy store, our customers tap into the generosity of the season (the loveliest thing about Christmas? We all rise to the occasion, becoming the person our dog thinks we are).
Then a revolutionary thought popped into our collective minds.
Christmas comes and you’re shopping baby. You’re looking. You’re on a medieval quest to light up your friends and family with delight.
But what if you treated yourself that nicely? There’s plenty of good cheer to go around; what if you gifted and nurtured yourself with some fabulous? Or as Rupaul puts it: if you don’t love yourself, how the hell you going to love somebody else?
We know our Glasshouse girls. They integrate our scent into their lives: personalising boring hotels suites; spritzing their sizzling signature throughout their love nest and drifting off in the bath as our latest candle takes them somewhere new, from the sticky sweetness of the fairground to the mossy pungency of the forest floor.
So we had a ball in the office imaging our glorious customers on a gift- giving spree with this season’s offerings - to themselves.
Ding Dong Merrily on High
It’s the silly season and she’s ready to mingle all the way - girlfriend (and life of the party) has bottle of bubbly ready to go. Our iconic Night Before Christmas range, ‘Dancing Sugar Plums’, showcases the fruits and blackcurrants of a great midnight gathering. Magical gold and red packaging is so pretty her candle becomes a new decoration – only this time she gets to open the box.
Nothing is too much trouble for this lovely lady, earth mother to her family and the best bestie a girl could have. God rest ye merry girlfriend! We’d love to give you permission to spoil yourself with White Christmas' Cedar Leaf, Fruity Clove, Eucalyptus and Pine for a cold climate twist to your Aussie bush Christmas retreat before the relatives arrive (we know you’re doing lobster instead of a roast…) You earned it this year.
Away In A Manger
While most of us are barely surfacing from a King Henry the Eighth-worthy feast (hey, ‘tis the season…) this glam-up-and-go girl is in the Business Class lounge, putting the jet into jettison. Christmas is her off-time; her playground has two hemispheres. Luxury Travel Packs’ irresistible miniature candle and nourishing Hand Creme brings the fun of Xmas pampering and pressies on the road. Bon Voyage!
This year our Limited Edition Christmas Candles, Diffusers, & Gift Sets make the perfect gift for everyone. Especially you.
