Warmed by the sun, the air is heavy with birch and red cedar. Can you sense its strangeness?




A scented candle evoking the sensory strangeness of black volcanic rocks on the oceans edge. Warmed by the sun, the air grows heavy with notes of birch tar and resinous red cedar.

  • Olfactive Notes: Tree Resin, Birch Tar, Red Cedar
  • Materials: Soy wax blend with cotton wick                       
  • Made in Sydney, Australia
  • 300g approx. 70 hours burn time
  • The first burn is the most important as it sets the burn memory. When lighting for the first time, ensure it is alight long enough for an even wax pool to develop to the edge of the vessel.
  • To ensure an even burn and the best scent throw experience, be sure to trim the wick to 5mm before each use. 
  • After extinguishing the flame, make sure the wick stands upright in the centre of the vessel. 
  • Never burn a candle for longer than 2 hours, or when the wax level reaches less than 2cm from the vessel base. 
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep away from draughts, children, pets, or flammable objects like curtains. 
  • Always ensure candles are placed on a non-flammable base while burning.
