About us

Our mission 

To reduce waste and give a second life to glass bottles. 

A little bit about us

We love all glass bottles and we are passionate about reducing waste and recycle what we can. We give glass bottles new life by repurposing wine, rum, cider and beer bottles collected from our local bottle partners here on the Mornington Peninsula and create scented candles.

Hand crafted and poured in small batches  to create 100% pure soy scented  candles in repurposed glass bottles.  

Fenix is the Swedish word for Phoenix which connects back to Sweden where our love for candles began. The Fenix symbolises hope through regeneration and renewal, rebirth emerging from the ashes, much like we hope a candle from Fenix Candle Co will bring to you. 

Our story 

Swedes love candles. If you have ever been to Sweden you will find every house in Sweden filled with candles spreading light and warmth in the home, especially during the cold dark winter days. 

Being surrounded by restoration projects (dad) and old items being transformed into something new (mum) growing up, some of that Jakobsson creativity and craftsmanship finally rubbed off. 

Fast forward to today and a move to the Mornington Peninsula.  Surrounded by so many amazing wineries, distilleries, breweries and restaurants, it’s impossible not to collect a bottle or two on your outings exploring what the neighbourhood has to offer.  

It was on one of our visit to Jimmy Rum spotting the basket full of empty bottles of rum on the way out that sparked the idea.  The bottles are made of beautiful thick clear glass, ideal for repurposing and giving the bottles a second life by  creating scented candles. And so Fenix Candle Co was born.

All our candles are hand crafted and poured in small batches. The bottles are in their second life and may have picked up a few imperfections, or 'memories' as we like to call them, along the way but that's just part of life and what Fenix is all about. 

We hope you enjoy your Fenix candle! When you are done, send it back for a refill or find a new purpose for the glass jars. Share your new creations on Instagram @fenixcandleco. 

Let’s do something for our planet and have some fun and enjoyment doing it! 

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
