*This is a featured item for Artisans Nest at 315 King Street, Newtown. While you can purchase online, it's an amazing space well worth visiting directly!
The area known as Newtown was part of a broader area where the Gadigal tribe of the Eora people once reigned supreme. We acknowledge the traditional custodians of country, and recognise and honour their continuing connection to the land, waters and culture where sovereignty was never ceded. We are on stolen lands.
Newtown is a diverse, bohemian neighbourhood that bustles with activity day and night. Shoppers head to King street for the indie bookshops, artisan boutiques and thrift stores. Hip bars and eateries with multicultural fare cater to both locals, university students, and travellers far and wide. Newtown is a hub of live music, comedy and performance Art, a safety net for creative kin. Restored Victorian buildings and street art, including a famous mural of Martin Luther King, round out the scene.
Loobylou is driven by a love of candles and inspired by the connection between fragrance, emotion and memory. We create all our own scents, blending perfume grade fragrance and essential oils, to offer you a unique sensory experience. We are cruelty-free and vegan friendly. Everything is hand-made in our Sydney studio. Our products are tested on us, NEVER on animals – because, nope. We believe in treading gently on the Earth, crafting natural products of the highest quality.
To us, burning a candle isn’t just about making your room smell amazing, we see the act of lighting a candle as a ritual that ignites an intention. Each candle has a quote we offer so that in the moment of lighting your candle, you are putting something beautiful out into the universe. It’s about you, and the moment of pause you are creating.
This is our interpretation of Newtown; warm yet earthy, sweet but not sugary, deep, but not cloying.
