Transport Yourself to Another World with these Top 10 Luxe Aussie Candles

Looking for a unique fragrance that will bring back special memories? Or are you just trying to escape the Melburnian winter (or another lockdown)? Find your fragrant escape here!

It doesn’t matter if you love candles for their scent or for their calming effects; no matter your taste, we’ve done the research so that you don’t have to.

You'll find something in our list to suit almost any mood: from scents that will make your home smell like the beach to aromatherapy candles that will transform your home into a spa sanctuary. 

1. Bondi 5 – Australian Lime

This sunny, zesty candle captures the energy of Bondi Beach in early summer, with crashing waves and beautiful sand dotted with the footprints of joggers. The 60-hour candle features Australian lime and wild berries to invigorate body and mind, while coastal jasmine gives a hint of the day to come.


2. VOLUSPA Baltic Amber Classic Boxed Candle

Create a cosy atmosphere with VOLUSPA's Baltic Amber, an infusion of vanilla orchids, earthy sandalwood, and honeyed amber resin. When lit, the matching amber glass emits a golden glow, maintaining an intimate, understated ambience.


3. Laboratory Perfumes Samphire Candle

In this layered fragrance, juniper berries, citrus oil, lavender, rosemary, and basil evoke coastal air, with verbena layered over white amber and oak moss. Laboratory Perfumes begins fragrances with a single aroma, and for Samphire, it was the verbena leaf her friend picked from her garden one sunny afternoon. The smell was so fresh, Laboratory Perfumes decided to capture it for their third scent.


4. SOH Melbourne Collins St 

This scented candle is inspired by the famous Collins Street in Melbourne and features the scents of sugar, caramel, mandarin, and lemon. Housed in a subtly tapered, white matte vessel, the candle embodies the classy, historic feel of one of Melbourne’s best streets.


5. Gippsland Candle by búl

Discover the beauty of the Australian bush with bùl’s Gippsland-inspired candle. Native flowers blooming among gumtree-laden trails, a sea salt breeze, and the crisp aroma of bergamot, jasmine, and lavender transport you to this Australian paradise.

6. Fresh Linen Candle by Bed Threads

With notes of fresh freesia, musk, and nutmeg, this fragrance is reminiscent of crisp, line-dried sheets. Finally, you can have a room that smells as good as linen bedding feels.

 7. Cocolux Australia’s Luna

Figs, cassis, cedarwood, and hyacinth combine to make this warm, comforting scent. With its rich fruit flavour, this is the perfect complement to mealtimes and entertaining.  A great feature of this product is its re-usable, recyclable vessel. I love a well-designed luxury gift! 


8. Apsley & Company’s Santorini 

With this evocative candle, your space will become an aquatic oasis. Embrace dreamy marine notes intertwined with patchouli and hints of black pepper. This intoxicating ode to Santorini is encircled in an entirely unique mouth-blown glass vessel, featuring two wicks and a decadent soy wax blend that emits a burn time of up to 60 hours.


9. Lumira’s Arabian Oud Candle

This candle perfectly captures the enigmatic charm and opulence of the Middle East in its blend of dignified oud and powdery rose. As the smokiness slowly dissipates, the beautiful rose scent emerges, creating a clear floral core that's complemented by its sandalwood and patchouli notes. In the end, it's the namesake – oud, a rare ingredient with a rich and resinous scent – that leaves a lasting impression. 

10. Glasshouse Fragrances – Montmartre Macaron

One of my favourite elements of the luxury Australian brand Glasshouse Fragrances is their unique limited-edition scents and vessels. 

Their newest addition, Montmartre Macaron, takes inspiration from the renowned Montmartre, a chic and bohemian neighbourhood of Paris. A tribute to the artists and patisseries that can be found on every corner, Montmartre Macaron captures the rich aroma of the precinct’s streets with its vanilla, blueberry, and sugared coconut scents. 

A luxury candle that transports our senses to Paris is just what Melbourne needs right now!
