An Inner West institution, Hunter Candles creates an olfactory experience that’s clean, considered and unapologetically cool.
From humble beginnings in a Newtown backyard to a light-filled industrial enclave on May Street, Hunter Candles remains a true embodiment of the creative energy and distinct community culture that courses through our 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.
Her obsession with the graffiti-streaked streets and industrial back alleyways of Newtown underscores the creative ethos hand-poured into each and every candle. “I find these streets contagious. They have this crazy energy, full of life and lust. Yet everything still feels so simple here, and everyone feels so connected.” This interconnectedness to community is at the heart of Hunter Candles.
