Perth Summer Soy Candle

(5 customer reviews)

$25.00

Warm summer nights. Cool ocean breezes. Music festivals. Outdoor cinemas. Weekends at Rotto.

When it comes to Perth Summer, you’ll never want it to end. (Except the flies. They can f*ck right off.)

This western beauty smells like dusky December evenings on the beach with your mates, a few gin & tonics, a guitar, and a roaring bonfire lit by someone who’s ignored the fire ban. (They’re probably from Sydney.)

Cooler than a quokka selfie and laced with sandalwood, amber, moss, and seaweed, our Perth Summer soy candle captures the essence of warm, salty breezes off the Indian Ocean as you watch the orange sun drop below the horizon at The Cott.

Perth may be the most isolated city in the world – but damn, we know how to do summer.

Buy it for: Lighting up in winter when the temp drops to 27 degrees and your Sandgroper homies want to reflect on warmer times. (#EndlessSummer)

Top Notes: Cucumber, sea salt

Middle Notes: Moss, seaweed

Base Notes: Sandalwood, amber

Word On The Street

“You know when you’re in the dead of winter and summer is a distant memory? This candle makes you feel like you’re right back to late night beach swims and cold Friday night drinks. Absolutely amazing!”  – Christi

“This is good for shacked up lovers that want a glorious smelling home but are considerate of your manly other half. Husbo never discreetly blows this one out when I’m not looking so I know it’s a keeper.” – Hayley

“This scent is EPIC. It’s the moments just before a summer storm, it’s lying on the beach after a salty swim, it’s a backyard BBQ. it definitely sums up Perth Summer to a tee. Totes sniffable xx” – Dilhari

Approx. 470g with 80+ hours burn time

Burn Candles. Do Good.

We’re more than just another basic candle company – we’re here to set the world on fire. (Geddit?) That’s why $2 from your order will go directly to a not-for-profit organisation of your choice.

Thanks to your support, we have been able to donate over $18,000 to worthy causes so far. (Because baby, it’s a wide world – and we’re here to light it up, one bright prospect at a time.)

Baby light my fire

We don’t do things half-assed around here; that’s why we only use the finest fragrances and highest-quality soy wax in our candles. So not only do our candles smell amazing when they’re lit up and being all candle-y, they also emit fragrance when they’re just sittin’ around!

We gonna let it burn, burn, burn

Place in any room in the house that requires a lil’ extra magic.

Tips and tricks (for when your wick is being a dick)

  • Trim candle wick to about half a centimetre before lighting.
  • If your candle starts smoking, your wick is too long. Blow it out, trim, and re-light.
  • If your wick is drowning, melt some of the wax around the cord and pour out until
    wick is visible.
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. (That shit’s just dangerous.)

Ingredients:

Soy wax: Hydrogenated soy oil, containing a soy-based additive. All 100% vegan, natural, and kosher.

Fragrance: Composed of natural, naturally-derived, and synthetic ingredients. All fragrance materials have been studied by RIFM (Research Institute for Fragrance Materials) for safety, and IFRA (International Fragrance Association) has set forth a code of practices for the use of the materials. This ensures that fragrances are safe for consumers. All our candles are phthalate free (and smell-o-riffic AF).

    Smells really lovely! A touch too masculine for my taste though. Love the handmade feel of the candle.

People tell me I’m an easy going mum, but I think they’re confusing my being exhausted with being easy going.
I still don’t have a clue what I’m doing. Some days I feel like I’m killing it and she’s laughing her head off, other days I haven’t had a shower and have only eaten half a bag of grated cheese all day.
To all the other mums in the trenches with me: I see you. I hear you. I am you.
