Our Story

Candle Journey is collective store for undiscovered luxury candles made in Australia. 

Our goal is to awake your lost senses, to refresh your fond travel memories through our unique candle fragrance while staying at home. Aka "staycations".

Or to inspire your next travel destination by our beautiful candle perfumes - a "candle inspired travel" when we could head out again.

Candle Journey was started by Gillian, who travelled to 73 countries around the world during 2017 and 2020. She returned to Australia in February 2020, and went straight into lockdown due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

It's a perfect excuse for her to rest at home, without thinking about going anywhere. But that didn't last too long before she got bored and was eager to travel again. What can she do when the only place she could go is home?

She started having staycations by burning different scented candles at home, to mimic and imagine the beautiful places she's been on earth. By closing her eyes and deep inhaling the beautifully scented candles, the fond memories in the past began to evoke, the excitement of exploration started to fill in her veins, and many exotic places really got brought in front of her vividly... at home.

It may sound too good to be true but you can travel through smells! 

This is how Candle Journey was inspired and started. We would like to create and share the travel experience with you through the seemingly endless hours of aroma.

 Let our journeys continue.
