Prospect – Something expected; a possibility.
The Prospect Project started in 2014 by West Perth local, Shan. As a result of being unhappy in the corporate world and spending her twenties travelling and partying, Shan realised that she had tonnes of life experience but wanted to prove to herself that with hard work and passion, she could achieve something with her life and make a positive change within her community. Shan also noticed her health was suffering and began to see the difference that eating healthy made to both her physical and mental health and found that many “healthy” products were overpriced, full of hidden chemicals, pretentious and took themselves way too seriously. She also wanted to make a difference by creating a high quality product that was unique, good for you, delicious, affordable and that not only made people smile but gave back to the community whilst being eco friendly.
Through learning not to take life too seriously and being kinder to herself and others, Shan combined her love of hip hop, puppies and food into her products and their names and gets a huge kick from the feedback her customers give her as well as being able to donate 10% of sales from her online store to worthy not for profit causes.
The Prospect Project proudly collaborates with other girl bosses and has grown to be a small team of MVP’s who provide invaluable support with deliveries, prep work, marketing, and behind the scenes assistance to allow Shan to continue to grow TPP, with many exciting projects on the horizon.

WORD ON THE STREET…
“Holy moly, these lil’ suckers are a candle-y game changer!
I can’t decide what I love more: the simple, on-trend, minimalist branding which speaks my (sassy) Love Language; the heavenly scents – with just a hint of ‘f*ck you’ vibes – that are so damn good I actually drooled into the Lemon Meringue Pie candle (#truestory); or the fact that a portion of each order goes to a deserving charity of my choice.
You may regret buying lots of things online – like that faux fur coat from eBay or some dodgy fake tan from Brazil – but stocking up on alllll the rad AF candles from The Prospect Project won’t be one of them.
Bravo, team. BRA-vo. *slow clap*”
“Beyond expectation. Not only do they smell incredibly divine but they look so fabulous! Thank you thank you thank you!”
“Mash up all the delicious memories of mum’s cake creations from the Women’s Weekly birthday cake cookbook from every birthday I ever had and boom, you have this candle. Burning this beauty also fools guests into thinking you are level 10 housewife.”
“Would it be acceptable to eat this?”
“Everyone loves unicorns right?”
“If this is what unicorn poo really smells like I want to bathe in it”
“After burning this to the bottom I can confidently say that if I had a pet unicorn I’d let it poo inside.”
“We first fell in love with TPP’s kick ass candle range back in 2016 and the love grew deeper when they released their “Becky with the good hair” Lemonade & Strawberry flavoured, Beyonce inspired candle!! (We burn that baby every single day) Not to mention the kick ass #girlboss behind the brand who we love having as a part of our #FIFDTRIBE. Thank you Shannon, for sharing your Godly candle making skills with the world”
“Shoutout to @prospectproject for sending us this deeeeelicious hand poured soy candle. The only thing we love more than candles is having them emblazoned with the lyrics from Shoop”
“This amazing candle came today, I’m obsessed”
“I NEED MORE OF THESE CANDLES IN MY LIFE”
Yummy…my house smells like I’m standing outside the Hummingbird Bakery in Notting Hill. Absolutely Divine @prospectproject
