Summer Candle Favourites

I love to burn candles all year round, and although it may seem strange to burn a candle during an Australian summer it’s usually pretty cold in our house because Sebastian is a huge fan of the ol’ air conditioner. I wanted to share some of my favourite seasonal candles with you, as these little beauties have been staples in my house for quite a few years.

Glasshouse Montego Bay (coconut lime) – This is probably my longest running favourite fragrances, and one that I continue to love years after discovering it. I actually think I started out wearing this as a body moisturiser, but then switched to burning the candles when I knew they were available. Coconut and lime is the quintessential summer fragrance for me, so this is perfect. An OG candle for me.

Glasshouse Kyoto (camellia & lotus) – This is Sebastian’s favourite scent, and he always has one of these candles on his desk in our study, and the throw on this candle even when it’s not burning is strong enough to make the room smell amazing. At first the fragrance of this was a little bit too floral for me, but it’s grown on me and now I really like it.

Glasshouse Galapagos (kaffir lime & cocoa butter) – I asked for this candle for Christmas a couple of years ago, because I smelled it once and instantly fell in love with the fragrance. This is more of a fruity scent so if that’s more your cup of tea than a floral or gourmand, this is worth picking up.

Glasshouse Coney Island (burnt sugar & fig) – If you ever used the Firebird/Flourish perfume oil in Sugar you will love this, because the scent is almost spot on. I want to bathe in the melted wax of this candle, it smells that good. More of a gourmand-y type scent, but still ‘fresh’ enough to be something I burn in the warmer months.
