When scientists and medical doctors turn their minds to scent, magic happens
Our story has always been Light & Glo’s heartbeat and its pulse quickens with every year. A Melbourne based fragrance house founded in 2015 by husband wife duo Suji & Jeeva.
Light & Glo is a multi award-winning business creating boutique candles, with a focus on creating fragrances that are not only novel but crisp and fresh with a contemporary take on age-old perfumes. Handcrafted here in Melbourne we create wood wick soy candles from soy wax, blended with natural fragrances of the highest quality.
A fragrance house that takes extra special care in every step of their candle making which allows for a longer, cleaner burn, ensuring when you light a candle, even a large room can appreciate the mesmerizing scent. The wooden wicks crackle just like an open fire, just light and enjoy!
Combining an effortlessly cool Melbourne aesthetic with ethical practices like sustainable and responsible sourcing, these candles will make you feel as good as your room will smell.
