Petrichor, could this be the best Australian word?

October 23, 2017

Scents that instantly send us back in time, they can conjure up people, places and events more so than looking at a photograph or home video.  As we head into the silly season of Christmas, Téa&Belle has launched our favourite scents through a series of candles that will transport you back to a simpler time.

 

 

 

 

 

Cicadas Calling

The smell before and after a thunderstorm in summer, daylight savings, jacaranda trees in bloom. A southerly buster blowing in to break the back of the heat. The scents of an Australian summer. Mum running out to take the sheets off the line before the storm came and then lying in bed with those fresh cotton sheets that had dried on the hills hoist all afternoon, we hear the Cicada’s calling, that sound of Australia, that Cacophony that heralds summer is here.

Téa&Belle's Cicadas Calling candle will immediately take you back to the Australian summers you remember and yearn for. Petrichor, one of our favourite Australian words, which encapsulates our Cicadas Calling Candle perfectly

“The scent of rain and the earth opening up to receive its blessing”

Ghost Gum

Could there be a smell that evokes homesickness of any ex-pat living away from Australia then the perfume of a crushed eucalyptus leaf? Bring forth the lemon scented gum and the wattle and how quickly we are transported back to a time when we realized these are the scents of Australia when we were full of wonder and curiosity at how big our world could become.

That smell of dawn, when out bush. The heady scent of your hiking boots bruising the Eucalyptus leaves and releasing that distinct Australian smell.

Late at night, I head outside to the stillness after a busy day just to breath in the scent of the ghost gum in the backyard and it's bliss, I am home.

Ocean Road


Running home from school on the last day of school for the year, the car getting packed up for the long road trip ahead, the car games, the obligatory stop at a small-town bakery on the way for a pie or a vanilla slice and then, then the rise over that last hill and you see the ocean. Summer holidays have started.

Balmy summer nights in a tent or at the old holiday shack. The mosquito coils, the smell of night creeping into long sun-filled days at the beach, the smell of coconut oil, green apple shampoo, frangipani's and all the while that smell of the ocean.

Our ocean road candle will transport you back to a time of long summers, your first swim in the ocean, playing all day with friends you have not seen since the summer before. We give you the Australian summer experience.
