Those who’ve met the thoroughly Australian milestone of taking a ‘Euro Summer’ trip’ can attest to the magic that is exploring the other side of the world. Steeped in history, France is always a favourite spot–and in particular, Paris, aka the city of lights.
Our latest limited edition candle collection is inspired by the Parisian neighbourhood of Montmartre. Never been? Picture bohemian creatives strolling cobblestone streets with café au lait in hand, corners dotted with ateliers, and the kind of in-the-know boulangeries, patisseries and glaciers that are always packed with locals. Then, there’s the Sacré-Cœur, the jewel in Montmartre’s crown. No matter which boulevarde you find yourself on, this historic basilica draws your eye upwards to the highest point in the city. In a nutshell, it’s a place where the past meets the present–and we couldn’t think of a better birthplace for our two new scents.
Sacred Heart (think: Smoky Incense and Woody Myrrh) and Montmartre Macaron (sprinkles of Wild Blueberries, Velvet Vanilla and Coconut) both come in beautiful vessels. Intended as a tribute to the artisans of the area, they’re crafted in matte white ceramic (a brand first!) and etched with intricate designs. In another considered design detail, each vessel has been lined with a glossy glaze that matches the coloured wax inside.
