Meet winter’s ultimate fragrance collection for your home: Humidor by Glasshouse Fragrances

11 July 2022
Fashion Quarterly

Welcome the Glasshouse Fragrances Humidor collection into your home and prepare to be transported to another time and place.

Produced in partnership with Glasshouse Fragrances. 

As gales howl outside and frosty temperatures set in, nothing beats cosying up at home, lighting your favourite candle, closing your eyes, and letting fragrance carry you far, far away. As founder and CEO of Glasshouse Fragrances, Nicole Eckels so accurately explains, “when it comes to winter fragrances, there is nothing better than a scent that transports you somewhere warm, comforting, and sensual.”

Glasshouse Fragrances’ latest collection, Humidor – an olfactory ode to yesteryear’s speakeasies and smoking rooms – does just that and has landed just in time to take you back to a place of glitz and glamour. “These incredible scents, with their art deco-inspired sophistication, take you on a journey to a 1920s delicately smoked and gilded speakeasy,” explains Eckels.

The Humidor collection features three unique scents – After Hours, Heavy Petal, and Scarlet Nights. While each conjures up a bygone time – think subtle smokiness furling through dimly lit nooks, and a hint of sweetness from forbidden, prohibition-era cocktails – the three scents all have a one-of-a-kind twist.

Introducing the enchanting trio of Humidor fragrances:

After Hours

All three scents are equally enchanting, however aptly named After Hours is the star of this show. As the name alludes, this is a fragrance that conjures up the hours after the sun goes down.

The mesmerising notes that bring After Hours are a little bit naughty and a little bit nice. Spiced rum, ginger and smoky tobacco top notes bewitch the senses immediately before a heart of black pepper and patchouli is revealed. Finally, decadent base notes of musk, amber, vanilla, leather, and saffron envelop you and, like magic, transport you to a speakeasy of yesterday.

Glasshouse Fragrances After Hours is available now in a 380g soy candle, for $59.99

Heavy Petal

Next up in the Humidor collection is Heavy Petal which is available in a candle and diffuser. A blooming bouquet of germanium and velvety tulip petals opens the fragrance along with zesty lemon leaves and a hint of piquant black pepper.

While floral notes are the heart of Heavy Petal — expect the unexpected with this divine scent. There’s a twist on an old favourite, as smoked Lavender features at the heart of the fragrance with oregano, cream and Indian spices. But it’s the dramatic base of addictive sandalwood, charcoal and always-captivating patchouli that reinvents Heavy Petal’s blossoming floral notes and creates a one-of-kind scent. 

Glasshouse Fragrances Heavy Petal is available now in a 380g soy candle and 250ml fragrance diffuser, for $59.99 each.

Scarlet Nights

Scarlet Nights is the third unforgettable new Humidor offering from Glasshouse Fragrances lineup: a bold blend of delectable gourmand notes, rose, and mysterious scents reminiscent of the twilight hours.

Sweet and inviting top notes of juicy black cherry and apple are given a twist with a dash of rum. A unique combination of almond, plum, rose, and tobacco brings the heart of Scarlet Nights to life before sandalwood, amber, and vetiver round out gourmand fragrance with a delightful difference.

Glasshouse Fragrances Scarlet Nights is available now in a 380g soy candle, for $59.99 exclusively at glasshousefragrances.com.

Not only will these fragrances take you on an olfactory journey, each piece in the Humidor collection is bound to create a stunning visual statement. Beautiful bronze and ruby-hued glass is adorned with dazzling golden Art Deco-inspired motifs and patterns — another nod to the glitzy Gatsby era. And of course, all of the candles in the collection are hand wicked, hand poured and hand polished.
