Go on a sensory journey with We Are Posie
Byron Bay-based small-batch candle makers We Are Posie have blended a love of nostalgia and a passion for travel to create a niche collection that takes the humble candle, a long-standing household staple, back to basics.
Creators Ashleigh Sampson and Casie Brooker have incorporated their collective love of travel, the great outdoors and art into the We Are Posie soy wax candle range. The duo’s appreciation of the simple things has inspired the design of the collection, which includes a range of candles hand-poured and set in enamel camping mugs for a real sense of nostalgia. Light one of these and you’re transported back to those childhood trips away and family camping adventures. What’s even better is that it doesn’t all end when the candle does (you’ll have around 45 hours burn time up your sleeve) – your kitchen will gain a pretty rad looking enamel camping cup.
The apothecary inspired amber-jar range is simple in style, featuring an aluminium screw-top lid so you can stash the candle in your travel bag and take its soft amber glow on your journeys. Each of the handmade candles are created with soy wax and natural fragrance oils from the Byron Bay studio, with varieties like watermelon and cucumber, rounded out with basil and a hint of lemon – a delicious reminder of the balmy summer days ahead. Even the wicks are made from sustainably sourced wood, which emit a soft camp fire crackle. Ahhh, don’t you love that sound? Sometimes, all you need is the simplicity of a candle to be taken on a journey. Check out the We Are Posie range online and jump over to Instagram for some seriously cool candle inspo.
