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. 

Fenix Candle Co.

Our Mission is to reduce waste and give a second life to glass bottles

Fenix Candles are hand made using recycled glass bottles and hand crafted to create scented candles. The candles are made with 100% pure soy wax, mixed with our curated range of scents and hand poured into the repurposed glass bottles. 

The glass bottles are hand cut and sanded so may be a little uneven and have picked up a few ‘memories’ along its journey - but that’s part of a Fenix Candle Co charm.
