Inspired by the tranquil, carefree days of summers passed, boutique hotel Halcyon House is excited to announce the creation of their Halcyon House candle in collaboration with bespoke fragrance brand, Lumira. The Halcyon House x Lumira candle will be released in June and to celebrate, Halcyon House will be holding a candle masterclass hosted by Lumira founder, Almira Armstrong, on 15 June.
The Halcyon House x Lumira candle’s signature scent presents the essence of Halcyon House by fusing sunburst citrus notes with warm spices and a signature floral heart of sheer neroli petals. The candle will be available in two sizes, standard and mini, with the standard retailing at $79. Almira said the Halcyon House and Lumira collaboration had been a year in the making, with the candle celebrating the Halcyon House lifestyle of coastal tranquillity.
“I visited Halcyon House in 2017 for the first time and it brought back so many memories of my European vacations but with an Australian twist. I love how you are immediately immersed into this beachside holiday away from the everyday. A place you can truly switch off and I look forward to making many more memories there.” she explained.
The Lumira Candle Masterclass will be held on Saturday 15 June from 11:00am – 2:30pm with tickets at $210pp. Event guests will unleash their creativity during a candle masterclass with Lumira founder Almira, followed by poolside drinks and a two-course lunch prepared by Executive Chef Jason Barratt. At the conclusion of the masterclass, guests will leave with their own scented candle creation, a Halcyon House Lumira Candle and a coveted Halcyon House tote bag.
Halcyon House General Manager, Mauro De Riso, said of the collaboration and event, “I’ve admired the Lumira brand and Almira’s dedication to quality for years, so when I had the opportunity to meet her during one of her visits to Halcyon House, it only cemented my impression. The collaboration has been an organic process and we’re delighted to have the essence of Halcyon House captured in this candle. Guests can now take home one of our candles and be reminded through scent of their time at Halcyon House.”
The Halcyon House Lumira candle will be available exclusively from the Halcyon House Spa and Boutique and the Boutique’s online store at halcyonhouse.com.au and from Lumira at atelierlumira.com. For those wanting to extend their Halcyon House experience, guests attending the Lumira Masterclass will receive an exclusive 10% off stays of 2 nights or more during the week of the event. Masterclass, lunch and stay packages start from $1590 for two people in a classic room.
