Well hello there, my fellow fragrance fanatic!

You've stumbled upon the perfect place for those who like nice things but don't take themselves too seriously.

If you're classy, but also kinda not, and don't mind a bit of sass, then we're going to get along just fine.

I'm Franca, the founder and maker of Blackwood Soy Candles. I'm loud, I'm funny, and I have a bit of a potty mouth. Oops, sorry, not sorry!

But I also make some seriously awesome soy candles that are fashionably funny and ludicrously luxe at the same time.

Whether you want to treat yourself or find the perfect gift for your sassy friend or darling Nanna, we've got you covered. From soy candles to aroma mists, room diffusers, and luxury gift boxes, we have it all. Just a heads up though, our F-Bomb range might not be Nanna's cup of tea. But who knows, she might surprise you!

All of our candles are hand-poured with premium soy wax and the finest fragrance oils in our home studio in Melbourne. We offer affordable luxury home fragrances that will seduce your senses and add a bit of cheek (if you're into that kind of thing). Blackwood is classy, sassy, and a tad bad assy!

So what are you waiting for? Come have a peek at our collection! And if you're having trouble deciding which fragrance to choose, don't worry. Just hop on over to our "contact" section and shoot us an email. We'll send you a complimentary fragrance card so you can sniff out your favorite scent. Happy shopping!


How Blackwood came to be.

Listen up, folks! The story of Blackwood starts on our very own street where I live with my school-sweetheart hubby, our two adult kids, and a whole bunch of craziness. In the midst of it all, I managed to open up my own candle studio, which I absolutely adore.

Now, let me tell you about my beautiful Mamma who passed away in 2015. Every single day, I light a candle next to her picture and say, "Hey Mum." It's my way of celebrating her life and keeping her light shining in mine.

One day, I thought to myself, "I reckon I could make these candles myself." But let me tell you, I didn't want to settle for any old candle. So, I took a little class and got to work creating my own unique scents and experimenting with different jars.

I know my Mamma would be so damn proud of what I've created here at Blackwood. And you know what? She would've loved everything, even our sassy F-Bomb range! She was a bit of a jokester, after all.

So have a good squiz at Blackwood and let us light up your life with our amazing candles. Who knows, you might just find a scent that reminds you of someone special too.
