My mate Ainslie Walker has started working for the Glasshouse group who are an Australian Candle, Fragrance and Cleanliness crew. They happen to have a luxury line called Circa Home. From the thick waxy cardboard, brightly coloured modern art exterior to the vessels and fragrances themselves they feel and smell like luxurious homewares should. She gave me a bunch to test and I wanted to share some of my findings with you all. Circa Home Soy Wax Candles are handmade in Australia using natural soy wax, high quality fragrant oils and lead-free cotton wicks
Available online or in David Jones stores they are a perfect last minute, can’t believe I forgot Aunt Beryl, or even something to have pre-wrapped in the wardrobe in case the neighbours turn up with gifts unexpectedly.
The biggest surprise is how affordable they are. Prices start at as little as under $15!
Circa Home: Luxury Home Fragrance
Raspberry and Rhubarb is my favourite scent that I was given to try. It’s a modern fruity floral with a green heart that lifts it beyond my expectation. With only a few tweaks I could see this as a fine fragrance in the Aedes des Venustas line. Below I’m burning the candle.
Here’s the Raspberry and Rhubarb Diffuser in my bathroom. I love the white on white but I bet it would look stellar in a more modern dark with chrome or old fashioned wood bathroom.
I have to tell you a secret. I’m not opening this Hand Wash and Hand & Body Lotion. The Blood Orange fragrance is going to be a big winner with a citrus mad buddy of mine at Christmas. Yes, I’ll tell them it was a gift from the brand but they will be freaking thrilled.
Cinnamon Sticks is another winning fragrance in my books. Cozy and warm like Christmas should be. This is what I’ll be burning over the Christmas period to give even sweltering Sydney a little bit of festive cheer.
