Is there any better smell than freshly-baked pain au chocolat, piping hot bread, oozing melted butter and cinnamon sugar? No? It just stands to reason that a fragrance company would take advantage of the universal joy these scents bring and create bakery-inspired candles with them, so you can take home that sweet aroma.
Sydney-based Glasshouse Fragrances’ ‘Sugar Coated‘ is a new sugar-fuelled range of candles features six unique scents including Party On, based on birthday cake and sprinkles, iced mocha scented Rich & Famous, Sweet Enough, with rich salted caramel notes, Movie Night, which evokes caramel popcorn and choc tops, All Red Ones, based on red lollies, and Bakery Binge, which is scented like “freshly-baked everything”.
Glasshouse describes the individual scents as follows:
Picture baking trays piled with pastries that glisten with butter, piping hot loaves of bread, and doughnuts liberally dusted with cinnamon sugar. Smell that? With notes of Baked Bread Accord, Melted Butter, Star Anise, Milk Chocolate, and Cinnamon Sugar, Bakery Binge brings to life all your high carb fantasies this Winter.
Close your eyes—can you smell hot, salted caramel popcorn and decadent vanilla waffle cones dipped in crushed nuts? Thought so. Movie Night, the jewel in our Sugar Coated crown, taps into this very inspiration. Designed to showcase savoury top notes (Roasted Almonds, Popcorn) layered over sweeter middle and base notes (Vanilla, Cream, Salted Caramel), this bad boy is complex and beautifully balanced.
Inspired by an exuberant celebration of life, Party On evokes visions of a Vanilla Birthday Cake packed with Sprinkles. First, you’ll pick up on notes of Dark Rum, Cosy Vanilla and Aromatic Nuts. Then comes swirls of luscious Coconut and on the base, there’s a heady blend of Tonka, more Vanilla and Amber.
Featuring a blend of Chocolate, Cream and Coffee notes, you’ll also pick up on something else… (Spoiler: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better it’s been spiked with Rum, Butterscotch and Spices).
True to its name, Sweet Enough is about Sugar, Spice and all things nice. Featuring an abundance of dessert-inspired notes, you’ll discover layers of sumptuous Salted Caramel, Maple Syrup and Honeyed Nuts swirled with Butterscotch, hot buttered Toffee and Coconut Cream.
All Red Ones
If you’re a diehard fan of red frogs (or raspberries or strawberries and cream for that matter) you’ll know that there’s something about red lollies that’s endlessly appealing. All Red Ones captures this allure perfectly with notes of Pomegranate, Guava, Raspberries, Cherries, Jam and of course Sugar. All Red Ones is for lolly hedonists that can’t (or won’t) stop at just one.
