Press Release - 25 February 2020
Quaintrelle, a new luxury candle brand inspired by classic cocktails is sure to awaken your senses
A boutique candle company has just hit the shelves, featuring a range inspired by your favourite classic cocktails. Too early for an Espresso Martini? Too grey for a spritz? Too busy for cocktails on the beach? Quaintrelle has your back.
After years spent mixing up cocktails in some of Australias best bars, Quaintrelle founder Evonne Eadie has launched her first range of cocktail candles including Espresso Martini, Tiki A.F and Aperitivo Hour. Available from February 2020, Quaintrelle ships Australia wide.
Made lovingly from high-quality soy wax and artisan fragrances, these incredible candles are hand-crafted in Australia. “I make my candles like I make my drinks: heavy-handed on the flavour,” says Ms Eadie. The candles have a burn time of over 70 hours with fragrant designed to fill your entire home with heavenly scents.
For those who have not had the pleasure of coming across this gorgeous word, a quaintrelle is:
‘A woman who emphasises a life of passion expressed through personal style, leisurely pastimes, charm, and cultivation of life's pleasures.’
We believe this is the perfect name for a company that aspires to be the constant reminder to embrace life and all the pleasures it has to offer.
Founder Evonne Eadie, a true quaintrelle, has spent the last decade working in and around bars. She knows a few things about mixing a cocktail or two and one day thought, “why can’t my house smell as delicious as my bar?”.
Step aside “white linen” candle, you have no place in this modern world. Hello Espresso Martini, you know how to perk me up any time!
Thus, Quaintrelle was born, using the finest artisan fragrance oils, blended under the expert nose of a true cocktail connoisseur. Quaintrelle’s first range of three candles will fill your home with heavenly scents... or see you racing to the bar.
There’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh coffee in the morning and nothing quite like that first cocktail at the end of the day. Quaintrelle's Espresso Martini gives you the best of both. Undeniably delicious, we make no apologies in advance for your inevitable coffee cravings.
Featuring fresh coffee, rich cacao and vanilla, this is the perfect blend of your two favourite drinks: your morning coffee and afternoon cocktail.
We could tell you how this candle will transport you to an island beach, cocktail in hand and someone to rub coconut oil into your skin, but we make candles, not travel brochures. We’ll just tell you that Tiki A.F is delicious A.F!
Pineapple, coconut and lime make this a candle we could practically sip on (but don’t - come on guys, do we need to spell that out?).
You have to give it to the Italians; they sure know how to embrace the Quaintrelle lifestyle. For those occasions when you can’t sneak in a spritz after work, Quaintrelle's Aperitivo Hour has you sorted with scents of blood orange, ruby grapefruit and bergamot.
Future additions to the range include: Gin & Tonic, Vino Tinto & Old Fashioned.
