Wanderlust Soy Candle


Wanderlust will take you on an adventure that smells a helluva’ lot better than the shared co-ed bathroom at your dodgy, £5-a-night Shoreditch hostel.

Prepare to go on an adventure, ‘cos Wanderlust is more than just a #trending hashie. It’s wandering the souks of Casablanca; a hot cider by the fire after a day on the slopes in Whistler; climbing the steps of the Colosseum in summer; chowing down on crunchy báhn mì on the streets of Hoi An; and dancing til’ the sun comes up in Ibiza.

Perfect for travellers who are getting a little too old for another Contiki trip, our worldly Wanderlust soy candle is a heady mix of magnolia and bergamot, with a rich heart of myrrh and musk.  One whiff of this intrepid wanderer and you’ll be reaching for your passport.

Buy it for: Your BFF who did two years in London (5 years ago) who can’t let go of her adopted accent, obsession with Posh Cheddar & Pickle baguettes from Pret A Manger, or starting most sentences with, “When I was living in Camden…” (*eyeroll*)

Top Notes: Bergamot, leaf green
Middle Notes: Magnolia, heliotrope
Base Notes: Myrrh, tonka bean

Approx 470g with 80+ hours burn time

Word on The Street

“When I opened it up, the sweet but slightly musky woodiness hit me so I had to check out exactly what it was on the website.

I really don’t have any idea of what tonka bean smells like but the candle itself is so deliciously sweet, honestly like a creamy vanilla mixed in with some caramel. I really cannot place the scent on anything in particular, but it smells like something you can eat. Actually, it makes me think of a drink you’d have in winter, something warm and creamy with some sweetness and a little bit of spice mixed in.

There is that wood musky edge to it which blends wonderfully with the sweeter aspect of the candle, and helps avoid it being overly saccharine. The scent is fills the house when burning and gives off that whole warm fuzzy vibe.” @oysterandpearlblog

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 $20,000 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.)

  • All online orders are wrapped with Geami Greenwrap, a fully recycled sustainable alternative to bubble wrap. (And any bubblewrap that finds it’s way into your order has been reused by us from our suppliers, pinky-promise.)

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 extra AF)

  • 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 just dangerous.)


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).
