Mothers Day gift idea: Glasshouse Birds Of A Feather candle

April 27, 2014


With Mothers Day coming up in two weeks time, I thought that I will randomly feature some Mothers Day gift ideas on my blog. I thought I would start with a limited edition candle, that I found in David Jones a couple of weeks ago, and that I am utterly obsessed with!

My favourite candle brand of all time is Glasshouse Fragrances. They aren't cheap (generally around $40 for a large candle or $20 for a small) but they are triple scented and you literally have to burn them for 5 minutes and they make your room smell amazing. I have previously bought a few of the Tahaa candles which smell like caramel and vanilla, but I am in love with this new limited edition Birds Of A Feather candle.

This Birds Of A Feather candle comes in a neon pink glass container (which I will keep and turn into a trinket/lolly jar later on) and it smells like pink lemonade, which is a fresh, sweet and all round amazing scent. The Glasshouse website describes the scent as:

Top: Cherry, Pink Grapefruit, Berry.
Middle: Rose, Lily of the Valley, Lemon.
Bottom: Musky, Vanilla.

This candle is $42.95 which is slightly more expensive than the permanent range (which retails for $39.95) but 5% of the retail price go to the McGrath Foundation to help fund breast care nurses.


So if you are in a pickle and don't know what to get your mum for Mothers Day, check out my new favourite candle (I know I will be buying at least one more of while it is still available)... or if you don't think your mum will like the scent or the bright pink glass, they also have a huge range of permanent candles.

Let's all sign a petition to make this candle scent permanent!


  1. Glasshouse Fragrances is my favourite candle brand too! My favourite is "Tahaa" which smells like caramel goodness! I think I might visit David Jones to give this one a look! :)

    1. Tahaa is my favourite too! I have used up a few of them :P

  2. I love this candle! The scent is divine and the jar is also beautiful. X

  3. I saw and smelled this at DJs and was awfully tempted, but ended up buying another candle from Archipelago instead. I have been eyeing a Glasshouse candle for FOREVER but I just can't make my mind up about which one! They sound so good though, especially if they fill a room with scent in just 5 minutes :)

  4. it.......amazing packaging....xoxoxo...^_^

  5. Looks Beautiful :) Love the idea to re-use it later on!

  6. I was on the edge, just about to be tipped over into buying this and you did it! I can't wait to look for it and take many whiffs of it whilst wrapping for my mum :))

    It sounds divine, I love grapefruit mixed with other fruits and vanilla! It's actually perfect, I won't even hesitate to get it as some money goes to the McGrath Foundation...thank you for sharing!

  7. I love Glasshouse candles... Have ordered one of these pink ones online based only on people's raves - hopefully I'll love it!
