New Candle Scents from SOH Melbourne

Last year before the holidays we introduced SOH Melbourne candles and they were an instant hit. With a 70 hour burn time and amazing scent throw, we couldn’t keep the candles in stock. Now that we’re all spending more time at home, I’ve had multiple requests for candles. The SOH candles I had during the fall were amazing, but the scents were a bit heavy for the weather we have now. Luckily, new fresh scents have arrived, and I am in love with them.




While not technically a new scent, it sold out so fast that most of you never got a chance to smell it. Freshness of the sea and spring cut flowers from the land match together to take you away to a better place. As SOH Melbourne says, “The place where ample time is king on a sunny day and a gentle breeze drifts through the open abode.”



Green House

Dark green fig meets sandalwood and amber for an intoxicating scent you’ll want to burn every evening. The Green House is housed in a chic, white-matte candle that instantly elevates any space it’s placed.



Sophisticated white florals at its finest. Gardenia blooms out of her filling the air with white flowers, bergamot, tuberose, and orange blossom.



Inspired by warm Mediterranean evenings. This candle evokes a summer sunset, the red dashing across the sky, the green leaves of orange blossom beginning to turn down and the delicate flower exhaling sweetness into the air. Transport yourself into this picture-perfect scene with this glorious fragrance.


Collins St.

Named after one of Melbourne’s most famous streets, Collins Street features a blend of rich sweet scents such as caramel and mandarin. It’s absolutely delicious.


Grace Le Rose

Buried deep in floral heaven lays a bed of berries and roses, surrounded by hidden notes of jasmine and pine is the patchouli. This fragrance evokes beauty and elegance. A perfect spring scent.


Mr. Rosado

This sleek, black-matte candle fills the air with notes of green fig, bergamot, violet, cedar, and vetiver to bring Mr. Rosado to life. Reminiscent of a man who loves sitting on his deck and watching time pass him by.



The Plume candle evokes the aromas of warm wood, incense, and spicy berries, all housed in a subtly tapered, navy opaque matte glass vessel.


  • The latest from Angela
I have been a beauty junkie for what seems like forever, but before I did anything about it, I went to law school. (Yes, my life is a little like the reverse of Legally Blonde.) Then, I worked as a prosecutor in Sonoma County after which I moved to the DC area with my husband in ’97. I served as Majority Counsel to the Senate Banking Committee followed by a year-long stint at a lobbying firm. You get the picture. It was then that I decided to act on my dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Finding my favorite beauty products proved to be impossible without stepping foot in a mall–the horror. So, I decided to bring my favorites to Alexandria. A few trips to New York and a flight to France and Bellacara was born in March 2000.
