artisan hand-crafted beauty
The Escape Co’s unique pieces are handcrafted and hand-poured by Candise in her humble studio in Sydney. Each piece is carefully created for you and your home, embracing the philosophy to live life slowly with heart, magic and depth.
Just like each one of us, no candle is alike or perfect which is what makes them so magical. The inspiration for this collection arises from the natural surrounds of her Australian home. It is an attempt to capture the exquisite beauty of the Australian gumtree seen through the lens of the Japanese aesthetic ‘wabi-sabi’ – roughly translating as imperfect beauty. Using the rawness of concrete and the softness of soy wax, Candise finds the perfect mediums to portray her vision and bring something special to your home.
WHY SOY + PLANT-BASED WAX?
Soy wax is completely renewable and free of nasties. Most PILLAR candles are made with chemical pollutants such as paraffin, acrolein, formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, toluene, benzene, acetone which are released into the air when burning. These chemicals are what make most PILLAR candles look and stay perfect in colour and shape when burning.
Our candles are handpoured using clean soy and plant based wax. Soy is a living organism that continues to expand, contract and change from it’s current form. These ‘flaws’ are normal and it is a clear indicator that you have purchased a natural plant based candle. Each candle is lightly scented with beautiful subtle notes, nothing overpowering but just enough to capture your senses.
Here at The Escape Co we wanted to create a natural plant-based PILLAR candle, which is very rare to find within the candle market. Please remember that soy is natural, not synthetic which means it will not be 100 percent perfect in colour and texture. It may even change over time, as soy is a delicate and soft wax to use in PILLAR candles....Hey, we can’t all be perfect!
