You might already know that GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES co-founder and CEO Nicole Eckels was inspired to launch the brand when, after moving to Australia from the US, she discovered a gap in the market for locally produced high quality candles. What you may not know is that since then, we have continued to manufacture and hand-finish our candles in Sydney. Like many other industries, this is far from the norm, with the majority of brands now producing offshore. In Nicole’s own words: “We choose to craft our candles locally and by hand because it allows us to carefully observe the standard of quality for each and every one—we hand wick, hand trim, hand pour and hand polish.”
GLASSHOUSE FRAGRANCES’ commitment to quality is something that’s woven into every aspect of the artisanal journey. Our staff (dubbed “Sapphires” by Nicole) treat every product with love and care, and we think it shows.
Inspired by our recent relaunch, we’re taking you behind the scenes for a sneak peek at how our signature Triple Scented Soy Candles are made. From hand-pouring and finishing in our Sydney factory to burning in your home, they experience quite the journey! Along the way, we’re also answering a few frequently asked questions about our new soy blend wax and laying out the basic candle care tips and tricks every Scent Addict should know.
