Coconut meets Copper: Win New Candles from Cocolux Australia

Cocolux - New Candle Rangw in Copper Casing

Copper is the metallic of 2015.

Move over silver and forget gold. Bronze has even tried to get in on the action too. But when you see imagery like the photos in today’s post, why would you veer toward any other metallic when copper is so undoubtably amazing?!

The new candles you see here are from the divine Aussie brand Cocolux Australia, who have filled on-trend copper vessels with coconut wax to create what’s gotta be the decor marriage of the year. The best part, of course, is that you can win some by entering my competition below (you’re welcome). But before we do that I think it’s best I tell you why these new candles are so amazing.

New Copper Candles from CocoLux New Copper Candle range from Cocolux

Cocolux candles are scented with the finest fragrances and hand poured from clean burning coconut wax. Unlike many other waxes, production is sustainable and free from toxins, the use of pesticides and the need for deforestation. This approach gives the fragrant marvels an extra (and very eco-friendly) edge, don’t you think?

The copper vessels were designed to be re-used as vases, containers or planters once all of the candle wax has melted, so you get the scent of a candle and then the extra homewares piece at the end – bonus!

Created and poured on the NSW Central Coast by friends, Meisha Styrkowski and Natasha Nicholson, I reckon Cocolux brings a bit of paradise to your interior (and you can’t go wrong with copper, let’s face it!). As you can see in the pics, the candles come in two collections; Sol and Luna (white label and black label respectively).

WIN 2 Candles from Cocolux Australia!

    Island Fig, Cassis and peach would have to be my favourite. I love sweet fruity smells. Perfect for our tropical weather up here. I’m loving the copper! The packaging is beautiful!
    I think you need commission from DeLonghi, the amount of us that have bought the copper appliances… Myer in Cairns has sold out!

    Cocolux candles look like the epitome of raw luxury – the beautiful copper and contrasting natural coconut wax, talk about perfection!

    My favourite scents would have to be Grapefruit & Lemongrass, fresh and zesty – I can imagine this one sitting on my kitchen counter. I also love the Tropical Gardenia – one of my all time favourite scents, this is one for the bedroom, it reminds me of relaxed glamour, just the candle to light to take you back to those balmy summer days.

    It is our 7th wedding anniversary this week – copper and cashmere. So a copper candle would be perfect! Spice/Fruit: Island Fig, Cassis & Peach
    infused in Coconut. The scent would remind me of an island holiday …. Perhaps for our 10th anniversary.

    As the weather becomes cooler in Melbourne how better than to create the feeling of being in a warmer climate than to light a sensual looking copper Cocolux candle with the wafting scent of Island Fig, Cassis and Peach during the evening and the fresh Grapefruit and Lemongrass during the day.
    Someone make me a Pina Colada!

    Fig, Cassis & Peach would have to be my first choice. I adore scents that are rich, fruity and a little bit spicy. I am also very keen to get the Tropical Gardenia, it is such a classy fragrance. The copper containers look beautiful and I love that you can choose to let them get a rustic look or keep them shiny and new with a little polish.

    The tropical gardenia would be the one for me…. the sweet perfume of the gardenia takes me back to my childhood home where on summer afternoons after primary school I’d be sitting along mums garden bed of gardenia, arms dripping red juice from a piece of ice cold crunchy watermelon. Those were the days of long summers with daylight savings, where a kid could play outside for many more hours, running, jumping and doing cartwheels. Being called in for tea on dusk and begging for just 5 minutes more playtime….. Oh those were the days….Extraordinary how a smell can revive such good memories.

    Energising and uplifting, Grapefruit and Lemongrass is my favourite Sol scent. While the rich and spicy Island Fig, Cassis and Peach is my favourite Luna scent – perfect with a glass of red wine on these cool nights!

    4 May, 2015
  • “Wild frangipani” and “sweet pomegranate and acai” are my 2 top scents of choice.
    I am just imagining relaxing in my home with one of these incredible candles lighting up the room. The copper look is extremely lush and brightens up any room 🙂
