THE POWER OF SCENT
Pond is thrilled to announce the arrival of our next exclusive candle release for Spring
If you love our signature Pond scent, Bamboo and Lily, then experiencing our new release is a must.
The process of development for the exquisite fragrances we select is meticulously considered and inspired by the desire to allow scent to enhance our everyday living spaces by adding that most beautiful dimension of scent.
Our new, limited release candle will evoke that feeling when we awake to the start of spring; warmer, longer days and spring blossoming around us after (what feels like) the long, hibernation of winter. There is something particularly special about the fresh perfume of flowers that arrive in Spring.
Clean and fresh with spearmint, lime zest and middle notes balanced with soothing lavender, fresh cut grass and a slight woody, spicy finish of cedar wood and nutmeg, this scent has layers that are sure to stir nostalgic memories of Spring in a way that no other sense can recall. Think of lawn-mowers on a Saturday morning, the throwing open of windows and doors to let in the warmer air and peeling off woolly layers to throw on fresh cotton for the first time in months. There is something about Spring that makes us yearn for a fresh start in anticipation of longer and warmer days ahead.
Our candles are hand-poured using soy wax produced with only the purest of essential oils and zero artificial fragrance, presented in beautiful, heavy white or black glass vessels in three sizes. Our holistic approach also applies to the packaging - all vessels are able to be re-poured and re-wicked to minimise the impact of waste on our precious environment.
The Gift of Scent
The gift of a quality, scented candle is the ultimate expression of appreciation; a luxury that not everyone indulges in for themselves but, upon receipt is a beautiful and constant reminder of the precious act of giving itself.
At Pond we have a beautiful range of accessories to complement your candle - ideal for the person who has absolutely everything:
Use a timeless marble or vintage teak tray as a foundation piece to display your candle and bring spring indoors with a display of fresh, seasonal blooms in a glass or ceramic vase. Play with height and textures to create a beautiful vignette for your coffee table or console.
Pair your candle with a Pond brass matchbox cover - exclusive to Pond, these beautiful matchbox covers cleverly conceal any obvious matchbox packaging yet allow the box to open and close and strike a match. Ideal for the person for whom presentation is everything. Suits readily available matchboxes 28x57x71mm.
Or add a sense of luxury to your home with a Lumira candle snuffer - the ultimate accessory for extinguishing the flame on your favourite candle and a special piece to display with your candle.
Tips for Burning Your candle
Trim the wick - when lighting your candle ensue the wick is trimmed to no longer than 5mm tall. Do this prior to every lighting to ensure an even burn and less flame height.
Tunneling of wax - to eliminate this from happening, allow the whole surface to become liquid wax before putting out your candle. Never burn the last cm of wax
High flame - Should the flame start to dance on the surface of the wax, blow out your candle immediately and allow to re-set fully. Ensure the wick is short and that the candle is not sitting in a draught.
Safety - never let your candle burn for more than 3 hours at a time and never leave your candle unattended
Our new scent ‘Spring’ is available for a limited time only, so we look forward to seeing you in store soon.
