Vianney Hunter has been playing around with scents for more than a decade and created her eponymous label, Hunter Candles, in 2016. All of the brand's candles are artisanally hand-poured with soy wax, which is biodegradable and free from palm oil.
As well as the absence of palm oil, Hunter Candles eschew any genetically modified materials or petroleum. The soy wax is manufactured by using pure soy beans and is completely non-toxic, meaning they contain no nasty elements like petrochemicals, phthalates or parabens. The wicks are crafted from cotton and all the packaging is recyclable cardboard.
Each bespoke candle is underpinned by the tenets of cleanliness, earthiness and simplicity. From blends of pink peonies and juicy lychees, Australiana amalgamations of blue gum, lemon myrtle and wattle, to velvety fig and gardenias, there is an enriching smell suitable for every home.
To care for your new Hunter Candles product, the brand recommends burning the candle for at least two hours for the top wax to completely melt against the glass, preventing the tunnelling effect. It's suggested that the wick be kept trimmed at a quarter of an inch to stop the wick from burning too quickly or smoking.
