Haeckels fragrances are made from ingredients never before used in perfumery – in this case, parsley, berries and wildflowers picked from an overgrown abbey perched on the seaside cliffs just above the ancient stone fort of Reculver. The Reculver fragrance is a warm and intoxicating blend of blackberries, herbs, salt and sea lavender – among other secret ingredients. Just as impressive is the candle’s specially developed compostable mycelium packaging which is made primarily from the root system of mushrooms that are custom-grown around a moul and combined with sawdust, flax and hemp husks to create a completely natural and wonderfully textural lightweight treasure box. The entire piece comes wrapped in seed paper, which means planting your rubbish in the garden will result in a rush of wildflowers. We kid you not.
This is the first time Haeckels candles have been available in Australia.
This all-natural, sustainability-obsessed skincare experiment from Margate in the UK has won just about every design award you might care about. Centred around seaweed from the frigid Kent coast harvested under one of only two licences in England, the Haeckels collection is the work of a very small team, is quality tested by scientists in Oxford, and is, we think, the best natural skincare in the world. Only available in Australia at Sorry Thanks I Love You.
