Introducing the Premium Soy Candles of R2 Designs.
R2 Designs are an Australian small business who create premium soy candles. Founded by Gracie Ferro, the company is dedicated to creating beautifully designed, hand poured candles. All of the products contain only the best sustainable materials to ensure safe home fragrances that don’t negatively impact on the users or the environment.
The Soy Candles Collections.
R2 Designs currently have 5 soy candle ranges available via their website and selected stockists.
Lab Jars is a collection of 10 fragrances in a compact 250ml apothecary jar. Each of the apothecary-style vessels is beautifully designed with original amber glass and a full glass stopper.
The candles are made with 100% soy wax and have an approximate burn time of 55 hours.
The fragrances currently available in the collection are: Burnt Fig & Cassis, Cinnamon Vanilla, Coconut & Lemongrass, Golden Rose, Lime & Sandalwood, Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Mango & White Lily, Pomegranate, Sweet Lemongrass and White Tea & Ginger.
Continuing the vintage apothecary look is R2 Designs’ Cosmetic Jars Candles. A hand-poured soy candle in an Amber glass jar with a black gloss lid. At a handy 120g size and with an approximate 30 hour burn time, these candles are a beautiful compact size for aroma wherever you go. Each of the candles is also individually gift boxed, making them the perfect gift idea for fragrance fans.
There are currently 10 Cosmetic Jars candles to choose from with fragrances matching the Lab Jars range.
For those who love the metallic trend the Copper Glass Candle range is the perfect choice. A stylish glass copper vessel finished with lid for easy storage when the candle is not in use.
Made in Australia from 100% soy wax, the Copper Candles are available in 4 delicious scents: Anjou Pear, Lemongrass & Lime, Thyme & Olive Leaf and Autumn Harvest, a spice mix with notes of clove, ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon on a creamy vanilla base.
The Copper Candles are a compact 200ml but still have an approximate burn time of over 40 hours.
For a touch of opulence, R2 Designs have created a collection of 4 Marble Candles. The candles are hand-poured into a reusable marble jar, crafted from Italian white marble; as a natural product all of the marble is completely unique, so no 2 jars will ever be the same. Each of the marble candles is then finished with a copper lid, which contrasts perfectly with the fresh look of the marble.
At 240ml in size, the Marble Candles have a burn time of roughly 40 hours. They are currently available in 4 distinct fragrances: Blood Orange, Cedar Forest, Fig & Cassis and Lemon Zest.
Organics Soy Candles.
Last but not least is Organics, a new range created in collaboration with celebrated Australian ceramicist, Robert Gordon. For the collection of 100% soy wax candles, Robert has created a handmade ceramic vessel, which can be reused once the candle has been burnt.
The collection was created over many months and features 3 beautiful fragrances: Black Peppercorn Spice, Coriander & Orange Zest, and Orange & Bergamot.
Speaking to Australian Gift Guide Gracie said of the collection:
“Robert Gordon is an iconic Australian ceramic company and we are very, very proud of our latest achievement together,” she says. “We always like to honour the makers of the vessels and this collaboration is a true indication of sophistication and elegance.
“There is usually a story behind every range and usually the fragrances and vessels go hand-in-hand. The fragrance needs to set the mood and then the vessels need to rise to the mood that is created.”
Measuring 420ml each of the candles burns for over 60 hours and comes beautifully gift boxed, ready for gifting.
About R2 Designs
R2 Designs was founded in 2009 by Gracie Ferro and started with learning a single skill, how to make soy candles.
As a fan of candles but keen to use designs that would be safe to burn around her baby son, Gracie undertook a course on making soy candles. From that day she hasn’t stopped pouring candles and a hobby has become a business.
Several years later and now with 2 boys Gracie has built a wonderful collection of candles that are 100% soy wax; absolutely no petroleum paraffin is used in any of the candles.
The soy wax is made from soy beans, which is a renewable source so they are environmentally friendly and plant based.
