Our Place Scented Candle
Our Place Scented Candle has notes of dry tobacco and leather combined with bright florals and spicy clove bud. It evokes the warmth of an Australian summer afternoon in the bush.
Inspired by Dorothea Mackellar’s iconic poem ‘My Country’ and Lithgow artist, Graham Gercken’s painting, Kanimbla Valley No.3, Our Place is the promise of long, lazy days with golden views taken from the refuge of a cool, shady verandah - the scent of bush blossoms carried on a warm breeze.
These candles are divine. Not only do they smell incredible but the packaging and extra touches make them a very special gift. They even come in their own calico drawstring bag!
Size: 300g, double wick, 70+ hours burn time
Material: Soy wax, recyclable cardboard tubing
Care: To ensure an even and smoke-free burn, trim wick to 5mm before every use, and allow burn pool to reach full glass width before extinguishing.
Made in: Kangaroo Valley, NSW
The Story Behind it
Southern Wild Co was founded in 2018 by Tania Robinson and Hannah Ley – two friends who share a deep love for the Australian bush and all that it inspires. Southern Wild Co was informed by their experiences growing up in the country and now, making their homes in the bush.
"We sought a way to share the evocative nature of wild Australian landscapes with friends and family, both here and overseas – and discovered the power of scent, enamored by its ability to arouse emotion and trigger memories of home in us all."
Together, they combined their skills in art, design and aromatherapy with passion and style to create Southern Wild
