Autumn is here, the nights are drawing in, the coats are coming out and you are definitely wanting to spend more time indoors. That might just be us but if you feel the same don't worry.

A divine autumn fragrance needs to be warming and fresh, and these are our choices for the season.

This earthy fragrance is a great pick for the season. With the fresh aroma of pine needles, cinnamon, bergamot and nutmeg complimented with divine hints of oriental amber, patchouli & cedarwood, this fragrance brings a warm feeling to your home and is just perfect for a cosy night on the couch with a book.
Orange & Bergamot
This sweet orange and bergamot candle contains a zesty blend of floral and citrus notes. Merged with rosewood, pine needle patchouli and lavender bud this fragrance is just divine. A soothing pick me up and perfect for a rainy autumn afternoon.
At Aria Rose Collection we are very proud of our British heritage and this candle is definitely our most British yet. When we set out on this journey we wanted to evoke memories of our life back home and what could be more British than a sweet tea.
There is nothing quite like a lazy summer afternoon relaxing and sipping a delicious brew, our new fragrance perfectly encapsulates that feeling and takes us back to those wonderful memories back home.
Earl Grey & Honey is a refreshing, sweet and zesty fragrance with notes of bergamot, lemon, honey and of course Earl Grey.
Handmade in Sydney but distinctly British this artisanal candle is the perfect addition to bring a little bit of calm and relaxation to those blissful Summer days.
With a little sugar and spice and all things nice Christmas truly is a wonderful time of the year.
Our range of handmade candles draws inspiration from our favorite Christmas memories of festive days spent with family surrounded by heavenly fragrance.
We love Christmas and it has been a real thrill to put together a selection of candles to help you get ready for the festive season. As with all of our candles each has been lovingly handmade here in our studio on Sydney's Northern Beaches and having the ambiance of a Christmas market for the past few months has certainly been a treat.
Our range of Christmas candles will transport you back to magical times.

Here at Aria Rose Collection we are always looking and new and exciting ways to extend our range of handmade candles and this is a project we have been excited about for a while.
Do you need a little luxury? Surrounding yourself in heavenly fragrances whilst spending a cosy night indoors is definitely one of the best feelings, but we think we can go one better.
Our striking crystal starburst pillar candle is truly a decadent luxury, clean burning with a huge scent throw and a glowing flame.
When lit the candle is designed to burn to around a quarter of an inch from the edge before tunnelling, then its your choice, do you want to see the flame dancing behind the transparent starburst wax, or do you want to fold it over?
Available in two sizes and two brand new fragrances, the floral yet earthy Fir Needle and Jasmine and the luxurious Leather & Bergamot.
As with all of our products this luxury candle has been handmade in our Sydney studio so each one will be a little different from the next. You really are looking at something totally unique.
This might just be our new favorite.
One question that we are often asked is why do you use soy wax when making your candles and why is it better. Soy wax may be a more expensive alternative to paraffin wax but in this instance the benefits found definitely justify the costs.
If we want to answer the question really simply the answer is a straight forward one. Soy wax is better. It creates a better candle burning experience, its more environmentally friendly than the alternatives and it is better for your home and most importantly your families health.
Soy wax was only discovered in the 1990's making it a pretty new product and a much more cost effective option than other paraffin alternatives. As the name suggests it's made from soy beans, it's completely renewable, natural and environmentally friendly. So 100% amazing in our eyes.
One of the most important things for us when we started this journey here on Sydney's Northern Beaches was to ensure that we made a product that we could be proud of, was natural and was definitely not harmful. our health and the health of the planet is important. The wax that we use is from American grown soy beans. It is natural, clean burning, toxin free, environmentally friendly and has NOT been test on Animals.
So the main reasons for choosing soy wax ahead of parrafin wax in our opinion are:
Paraffin wax seems a more cost effective alternative but in the grand scheme of things and put quite simply soy is better.
We love testing new scents for our Northern Beaches inspired scented soy candles. Over the last year I don't think that we would be exaggerating if we said that we have smelled over five hundered different fragrances.
It can be so hard to choose but we made a promise to ourselves at the start of our journey that we would keep our range of candle scents small and that we would not offer a crazy amount of choice. The goal in doing this is to ensure that we love every scent that we offer and that we are proud of the candles that we produce.
We have been doing a lot of scent testing over the last few weeks as we have looked to develop our Christmas range and in working with a couple of our stockists in developing some very exciting exclusive candles for their stores on and around Sydney's Northern Beaches. I could pretend that this has been hard work but in reality it is so much fun. Some decisions are difficult but some are super easy.
Lychee and Peony was one of the easiest decisions we have ever made, we love it. It is both exotic and delicate, a perfect match of the exquisite lychee and subtle peony petals, it truly is a perfect Northern Beaches scent with a subtle oriental twist.
We are so pleased to now offer this in our store and as a key part of our Northern Beaches themed range. The last few months have been very exciting and we hope that we can keep growing, learning and bring more and more exciting soy scented candles your way.
All of our candles are created and handmade on Sydney's Northern Beaches using only the finest quality materials, fragrances, soy wax and wicks.
Our collection draws inspiration from the beautiful coastline that surrounds us and our products are designed to reflect the beach lifestyle by creating a relaxing and rejuvenating atmosphere with fresh fragrance and luxury. We hope to bring a sense of this into your home.
We started with hand poured soy scented candles and have expanded to include, soaps and other bath time treats in a variety of exciting and refreshing fragrances. We experimented with many fragrances when we were starting out but over time we have refined our collection and now offer four scents as part of our key range.
The scents chosen to reflect where we are and the lifestyle we lead were:
Lime and Coconut - Refreshing, a tantalizing fusion of fresh coconut, lime and invigorating verbena soothed by luscious vanilla.
Vanilla and Caramel - Indulgent, a sweet and salty buttery caramel scent is balanced perfectly with rich creamy vanilla, coconut and tonka bean.
Strawberry Daiquiri - Celebrate, fresh & fruity, red ripe strawberries and quenching orange fruity notes with white rum, vanilla & malt.
French Pear - Be on top of the world, this pear derive their name from the phrase, "Doyenne du Comice", meaning, top of the show. An amazing pear fragrance originating in France.
In those scents and in the words, refreshing, indulgent, celebrate and on top of the world, we believe we capture what is so great about Sydney's Northern Beaches and the lifestyle we love.
We have become a lot more adventurous with scents and winter has been very exciting in trying to create the perfect candle for a cosy nigh in but these scents will alway be at the heart of our candle collection.
We have had a great time over the last week working on our Winter Candle. As with all of our products we have aimed to reflect our life on Sydney's Northern beaches and with this candle we want to show how this is different during the darker months.
Despite the sensational scenery and beautiful beaches Winter can make us want to stay indoors and wrap up warm as the temperature cools. The fact that we are originally from the North of England makes us experts in this.
At this time of year it is fantastic after a hard day to come back to a cosy home. One way to make your home even cosier is a beautiful candle and we have made the decision to present this one in an amber glass. The amber is eye-catching and when lit offers a very warm glow, perfect for this time of year.
We tested a wide range of scents before we finally made decision but we are sure we made the right one, our limited edition scent is Fresh Ginger and Green Tea.
The Fresh Ginger is rich, spicy and decadent and the subtle notes of green tea bring out a real freshness.
Our Winter Candle is perfect for nights in and is available in our online store now.
Two weeks ago we were presented with a fantastic opportunity to work with the sensational Piper and Ross. Based in Pymble New South Wales this eclectic store is stunning and features high quality, exquisite furniture, homewares and trinkets. This store is inspirational and as well as the pieces available there is a fantastic creative atmosphere reflected in the paints and tools available.
We were so excited to be working with these guys and together we produced an exclusive Piper and Ross Emma Bridgewater two in one mug Candle in a Spiced Winter Orange.
To say that we enjoyed doing this would be a huge understatement. From collecting the beautiful Emma Bridgewater mugs to filling them this has been a great experience and has really given us a great deal of satisfaction. We could not be happier with how this has turned out and we hope that you agree that the end product is simply gorgeous.
This has been a fantastic first collaboration for us and it has been great crossing our Northern Beaches inspired candles with a true British brand giving us a bit of a feeling of home in Sydney.
