MAY LANE No. 12 OUDH/FIR NEEDLE/PATCHOULI
Experience the heart and soul of Hunter Candles through an enigmatic, opulent scent that epitomises industrial chic. Named after the laneway that’s led countless locals to their graffitied roller door, May Lane offers a rustic yet refined blend of oudh, cedar wood and moss, interspersed with fir needle and patchouli – an ode to the musky, earthy green tendrils that earmark our concrete space. At once mysterious and multifaceted, May Lane evokes everything from rain cascading down cement walls to exposed timber beams overhead and the rebellious aroma of spray paint scrawling its way across the bare brick just beyond their showroom. Choose May Lane for an all-encompassing scent that’s intriguing, opulent and effortlessly sexy – just like Hunter.
This candle burns for approximately 45-50 hours. Please refer to packaging for candle care instructions.
ABOUT THE BRAND
From humble beginnings in a Newtown backyard to a light-filled industrial enclave on King Street, Hunter Candles is a true embodiment of the creative energy and distinct community culture that courses through Sydney’s art-filled streets.
Every Hunter Candles blend is born from a moment in time, a memory, a muse – a scent undiscovered, yet somehow intoxicatingly familiar.
Gritty, intriguing, and inherently grungy, Hunter Candles embodies everything founder, creator and maker Vianney Hunter is about. When developing a new scent, Vianney combines nostalgic earthen tones and raw textures with inspiration drawn from the mentors, makers and memories that colour her world. Passionate about preserving the art of candle-making, each candle is brought to life with two bare hands – and promises to remain this way. More than just a scent, Hunter Candles is a true olfactory experience.
Hunter Candles are perfect for those looking to make more mindful candle choices without compromising on aroma or aesthetic. They take conscious steps to minimise waste wherever possible, and meticulously select materials of the highest quality to create each of their candles.
