Scent Candles - the ultimate guid

 Scent Candles - the best soy candles in Australia!

Scent Candles can change up your home completely.  Not just the style, but to walk into that amazing scent can change the entire mood of the home.

What scent do you choose for your scent candle though?  Every year we do our Top 10 for scented candles and wax melts – but what if none of those float your boat?  Or not sure what those fragrances are or if they will suit you and your home…  we are here to help!

We have categorised some of our most popular scent candles fragrances for you - as most customers find that they love a bundle in a particular category.

  1.  Citrus Lovers Unite
  2.  Are you SWEET enough?
  3.  Fruity is your thing...
  4.  Woodsy is the spice of life!
  5.  Flowers bring that smile to your dial
  6. Need some help deciding on the perfect scented candle glassware?


Do you love Citrus in your life?

Citrus is fresh and zingy!  These are strong and will be great for covering smells.  It is definitely part of our Top 10 in our scent candles range!

Lemongrass & Persian Lime

This is one of our most popular fragrances overall, and definitely our most popular in the citrus range for scent candles.  While this fragrance does have a soft floral undertone, the zesty lime and lemon peel come through strong.  This one is amazing for covering smells – cooking smells, bathroom smells – any smells really!

Lemon Myrtle

Similar to Lemongrass & Persian Lime, but oh so different.  It is a classic Lemon Myrtle with its fresh and green herbal notes, it smells of Australia!

Lime, Basil & Mandarin

Not as citrusy as the others, the basil comes through here to make it slightly spicy.  Still has the citrus tang to it though.


Are you a sweet over spice type of person?

There is a fine line between Sweet and Fruity.  A huge range of our scent candles collection is either sweet or fruity – and there is a reason for that!  People love these in scent candles – and some of the fruity are also sweet but we have tried to split them out for you!

Vanilla Caramel

Our number 1 most popular fragrance!  Everyone loves a vanilla caramel.  We have been told by many over the years that ours is the best scented candle they have ever smelt in Vanilla Caramel.  It is that warm sweet indulgent fragrance, reminiscent of lovely kitchen baking and sweet treats.

Japanese Honeysuckle

This one is fighting for the number 1 position in scent candles.  It is so popular.  This is the fragrance we run at all our pop up shops and people continually walk up asking what that Hubba Bubba smell is.  While the base notes are a combination of vanilla, malt, jasmine and cedar wood – the middle notes of Grape and Neroli are the ones that come through here. 

Musk Sticks

It’s that old time lolly that everyone knows and loves and it will not disappoint with its matching to that special sweet treat.  Nice and sweet but not to overpowering sweet.

Pink Sugar

A great combination of Vanilla and white musk, with some undertones of raspberry and strawberry.  It is definitely a sweet one with not a lot of fruitiness to it at all. 


Fruit of the gods in our scent candles!

Our fruity fragrances are hands down the most popular in our scent candles.  While Japanese Honeysuckle and Vanilla Caramel take up our top spots, the remainder is mostly the fruity fragrances.

Black Raspberry & Vanilla

A perfect combination of blackberries and raspberries with a slight hint of vanilla.  This is one of those fruity but not overpoweringly fruity fragrances that goes so well in our scent candles.  This has been one of our long standing constantly popular scents.

Champagne & Strawberries

A sweet concoction of strawberries and raspberries with the undertone of champagne.  Champagne & Strawberries is super strong and will carry through your home in scent candles.

Coconut Pineapple & Vanilla

Think Pina Colada!  It will take you to that Island Holiday that has been alluding you for so long.  Strong Pineapple and Coconut scents with the undertone of vanilla.

Watermelon Lemonade

The scent of Summer in our scent candles!  This Scent is watermelon all the way, so if you don’t like watermelon this one is not for you as there is no mistaking this.  It is filled with all the melon scents.

Passionfruit & Lime

One of our super strong fruity fragrances.  Both the passionfruit and lime shine through in this amazing scented candle fragrance.  There is a slight melon undertone to it, but nothing can overpower this strong passionfruit and lime fragrance.


Find yourself in the Woods

Woody scents are not for everyone – but they are oh so good in scent candles, especially in the winter months. 

Sandalwood Vanilla

The ultimate woody fragrance and our go to fragrance for our scent candles in our own home during the winter months.  It is filled with woody notes including warm amber, orchid  and Jasmine, with all the goodness of vanilla through it.  All you need is a nice warm heater, a good book and a glass of wine and you are set!

Black Amber & Lavender

Warm is the word when it comes to woody scent candles.  They always relate to winter for us and seem to envelop you in a nice warm hug.  Lavender can be one of those fragrances that people shy away from, however mixed with the warm tones of Amber – it turns this fragrance into something amazing!

French Vanilla Bourbon

Although the mention of Vanilla in our scent candles fragrance alludes to a sweet smell, French Vanilla Bourbon is nothing of the sort.  With the overarching notes of musk, amber, malt and tonka bean – the vanilla just adds to the edge that this fragrance creates. 

Flowers bring all the good to your life?

Flowers can be that one thing that bring happiness to your life, even if you cannot have real flowers in your home every day – just burn one of our amazing scent candles and it will feel like you have!

Wild Frangipani

Such a true replica fragrance.  Frangipani is one of my favourite trees – so pretty and such a huge variety of flowers.  This is amazing in a scented candle, it will feel like you have a frangipani inside your home!  As with a lot of our fragrances, this one does contain a unique frangipani essential oil component which helps with that matching to the real life Frangipani!

Sweet Pea & Vanilla

Reminiscent of a lovely English garden, this amazing scent candles fragrance gives you that lovely floral feeling but not one that will make you sneeze (if you are so inclined!).  A lovely floral with the edge taken off by the introduction of vanilla. 

Camellia & Lotus

Such a sophisticated fragrance to have in our scent candles.  The Camellia and Lotus is paired back with the base notes of Amber, Sandalwood, Musk and Vanilla.  A lovely warm fragrance that goes well during Winter.

Hawaiian Honey Blossom

Feel like going to Hawaii?  This sweet smelling scent candles fragrance will take you there.  A mixture of hibiscus flowers, star jasmine and honey to sweeten it up a bit.  You won’t be disappointed by this gorgeous fragrance.   



Our glassware collection is quiet broad compared to other candle companies.  Why you ask?  Well, as you are a candle obsessed person – so are we!  I find all the glassware in our scented candle collection is simply stunning that we really cannot choose – so we give YOU all the choice. 

Some customers are simply after the scent in our scent candles – and not that concerned with what it looks like.  Our Bondi and Leura scent candles collections are our standard range – and are still stunning, but are also great for the budget conscious candle lover.  You can grab your favourite scented candle fragrance for less!

Other customers want BIG.  The longest burn they can go for so they can enjoy their scented candle longer.  Our Embossed Glassware range is perfect for this.  With nearly 120 hours of burn time, it is our best valued scented candle you can get.  Our Kensington Extra Large is also a long burner at 80 hours and is also simply stunning with its GEO cut glass that flickers as the double wicks burn down.

Style all the way?  Our Rose Bay scented candle glassware is just like a stemless wine glass and comes in a range of different colours and styles – there is bound to be a stunner there to suit your décor.  It doesn’t scrimp on the burn time though, it is very deceiving… this scented candle has a huge 80 hours on it as well.

As usual – if you have any questions about any of our scent candles range – please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!

Sooooo many beautiful scents ! I’ve usually always gone with ‘woody’ ‘earthy’ scents , I’m a die hard patchouli and Musk lover. I’ve purchased ‘Egyptian Musk ’…loooove it and I’ve just purchased ‘Baltic Amber ’ which is divine!
I’ve been purchasing ‘clams’ as well as the little pop tubs( which are brilliant). I’ve got 2 melt warmers..the white butterfly and also the white elephant…I actually purchased the white butterfly originally for my mother in law but I loved it so much , I took hers and re-ordered another one for her ( she doesn’t know lol she thinks she got hers first). I bought the Egyptian Musk pots for her as she is really sensitive to smell and so is my husband so anything to strong can trigger a migraine, but both the Egyptian Musk and Baltic Amber are perfect and I can have them going day and night …not a problem, I prefer using the melt warmers as I love the ‘cosy’ feel it gives my home.
I have also discovered (and hubby is definitely loving these scents also) Driftwood and seasalt, and also the Lemon and Persian lime, that makes the house smell really ‘fresh’.
There are sooooo many more I want to try so I’ll keep placing orders, I’m sure I’ll always have my ‘favorites’ but I’m looking forward to discovering all the other beautiful scents.
And as long as you’re in business I’ll definitely be a lifelong return customer.
Warm regards, Ange 😊🕯⚘
