Babe Candles X Fig & Bloom

There’s something extra about Australian Babes, and the soy candles being produced by Babe Australia are also becoming our hottest exports! Four signature fragrances unlike anything else: Oud {pronounced Ood}, Rosa, Santalum and Cedrus have been designed to provoke imagination, and take you on a journey where anything is possible and probably best kept a secret!

When Babe Australia first launched their natural bath, body and skin care range, the unique fragrances of their products gained momentum, with customers soon asking for them to make candles!

Founder Kim Peirce has always had a passion for perfumery and worked with a third-generation French perfumer to create an olfactory experience that will blow up everything you knew about candle fragrances. These trade mark fragrances are the cornerstone of the Babe Australia home fragrance line. Kim wanted to create a scent experience for the candle burner; carefully curated top, heart and base fragrance notes stir up exotic longings and memories.

Oud is a highly prized and rare resin, often called liquid gold, which originated in the Middle East from the heartwood tree. It has been used in perfumery throughout history for its complex, aromatic scent and makes it richly symbolic of old world opulence. Unlike any other scent naturally occurring in the western world, it makes a distinctly exotic statement. Babe Australia’s Oud candle has a top note of violet to add dark enchantment, a heart note of anise for a lingering, candied spice sensation and the base note of Oud and Amber for a deep and balanced, luxurious, resinous fragrance. Oud will take you on a magic carpet ride to the smoky Souks of the medina.

Babe candles are individually hand poured into glass vessels at the Babe warehouse in Melbourne. Natural soy wax is blended with the highest ratio of premium quality botanical fragrances. An organic cotton wick is used so they burn with a deep, fragrant melt pool and have a potent scent throw throughout the life of the candle.

The best way to care for your Babe premium candle is to trim the wick when you first open the box and to allow the candle to burn until the top layer of the wax is molten. Snuff the flame, rather than blowing it out so black smoke won’t make a mess of your beautiful candle. Be sure to trim your wick prior to each subsequent lighting.

The Babe Australia home fragrance range has been made with love and designed to uplift your spirits and enhance the feel good atmosphere of your home.
