Sweet dreams are made of these

Hi! I’m Tracey, owner and chief candlemaker at Athena Luxe, an Australian business that combines the art of candle making with the neuroscience connecting smell with memories.

I’ve long been fascinated by the power of smell to take you back in time to a special moment or person. In fact, research published in the journal Cerebral Cortex shows that smell has a much stronger link to memory and emotion than the other senses of sight, sound, touch or taste

From the sweet perfume of Grandma’s Garden to a magical New Year’s Eve or Christmas Day, from that idyllic Family Holiday to dreamy Date Nights, certain smells take you right back into the moment. And our latest scents include Ice Cream By The Beach, Summer Afternoon, Camping In The Woods, Sleepy Sundays and Candy Cane.

Combining a life-long love of beautiful candles and perfumes, with a passion for nature, Athena luxe was born of a desire to explore the link between memory and smell and formulate precise aromas that take me back to beautiful times in my life.

Experimenting, measuring, tweaking, weighing, testing and reworking has helped me find the perfect scent for each of my candles. I have also spent countless hours scouring coastal boutiques, farmers’ markets and overseas retailers to find what works, and have immersed myself in the surprisingly complex craft of scented candle making and pouring.

I have taken great pride in getting every element just right, from the parchment labels and packaging to the natural raw materials, product design and, of course, each scent. All individually batch dated, gift wrapped and delivered to your door.

In a time of hectic business and digital overwhelm, a trip down memory lane to a simpler, slower time is just what we need to make us smile.

I’ve poured my heart into Athena Luxe so you can enjoy the transformative power of smell as much as I do.
