My friend Belle and I go way back, to a friendship that started long ago while working at a rather crusty old dental clinic that will remain unnamed. Thank god we both escaped to start our own businesses.
Baby mumma to one little one, Belle started her own fabulous candle making empire. While I remember the launch party like it was yesterday, this busy little bee has been hard at work over the last couple of years developing her range based on the South Australian locations and lifestyle. Think ‘Yorke’ with pineapple and mango, the ‘Adelaide’ candle with espresso, ‘Adelaide Hills’ with Butterscotch Pudding and one of my favs ‘Mount Lofty Ranges’ full of La Poire. The pear fragrance is a favourite in my office as it is subtle, fresh and non imposing.
It may seem like every man and his dog has a candle range, these are truly unique, from the wooden wick which sounds like a miniature open fire as it melts, to the gorgeous wooden lids on every glass jar of candle goodness, the soy based , vegan friendly wax and of course, this girl loves her pretty packaging. I have used these candles as gifts for friends, corporate gifts at work and of course, just a little treat for myself. The Gingerbread Christmas edition is a perfect pressie for all those extra little gifts you always need,.Belle also happened to work with Westfield, her candles being a gift with a Westfield purchase which as a friend from the dental years, I can say I’m proud of this little Mumpreneur business machine.
