Set The Festive Spirit Alight This Christmas

Media release: 29 November, 2012


Set The Festive Spirit Alight This Christmas - with Living Light!

The mistletoe is in position, fairy lights are twinkling, the angel is pride of place on the tree and the wreath is hanging on the front door - there's no doubt that Christmas is a time of beauty and light - so set your festive season alight, with Living Light!

Living Light candles are New Zealand-made, all-natural plant, beeswax and soy-based luxury perfumed candles - the perfect gift this Christmas, no matter who you are buying for!

And with a brand-new online shopping website in partnership with Living Light's top selling largest retailer Riva, and stunning new flagship store, it couldn't be easier or more fun to shop for friends and loved ones.

For long-lasting enjoyment, the Living Light Bell Lantern (RRP $33) boasts an impressive 24-25 hour burn time, providing hours of light, colour and fragrant pleasure. Made from the top of a recycled wine bottle, the Bell Lantern is available in 12 exquisite fragrances, including Ivory-Vanilla, Red Pohutukawa and White Rose.

For the floral fanatic, the Granite Rose (RRP $22.50) is a beautifully handcrafted candle that burns out through its petals, enabling you to place a matching tea light in the hollowed centre for long-lasting enjoyment. Available in fragrances such as Ginger Vanilla Orange and Teaberry, this is the perfect candle for the rose lover!

Or for something a little different, the Granite Icicle (RRP from $32) creates its own work of art and design. Best placed on a large plate to capture the sculptural pool of wax, candle lovers will be entranced by the unique lace pattern the icicle develops as it burns.

Add a modern touch to summer entertaining with the Mini Globe Lantern (RRP $40.89), which emits a soft, ethereal glow when the tea light is burning and is also floatable, making it a stunning option for a water feature. Hand-sculpted entirely of wax, the Mini Globe Lantern has a refillable glass tea light holder embedded inside.

If you or someone you know is a water lover, Living Light has a divine selection of Floating Candles (RRP $8 each, or $21.50 boxed) - from small granite candles available in a boxed set of three or individually - to beautiful tea lights which become coloured liquid as they melt.

As the signature Living Light range, Granite Pillars (RRP from $17.50) are made of natural plant and New Zealand bees wax. With a sparkling crystalline structure, the Granite Pillar creates a unique paper-like shell as the candles burn. Long-burning, soot-free and lavishly fragranced, the Granite Pillar can be used outdoors as it doesn't melt in the sun - perfect for Christmas evening picnics on the deck!

As decorative as the torches, candles, fireplaces and fire pits it lights, Versailles Social Light (RRP $110) refillable lighters are an ideal Christmas treat. An all-metal refillable butane lighter with hand crafted glass mosaic handle, the Versailles Social Light is available in black, red and mirror mosaic with polished chrome.

And for the eco lover, the Living Light New'd range combines recycling with sustainability. The New'd Soy in Recycled Wine Bottle (RRP $40) boasts 100% soy wax in recycled wine bottles, available in four gorgeous fragrances and three shades of recycled glass. Or go green with the New'd Soy in Recycled Fern Glass (RRP $40) - an emerald green bottle embossed with a fern which once held beer, this innovative candle now effuses a stunning green glow and a beautiful vanilla fragrance.

Living Light company founder Cynthia Baur says Living Light Candles offer unique designs that use natural ingredients to encapsulate the clean, green image of Aotearoa.

"Living Light Candles is not just a brand; it's a whole philosophy and lifestyle. Our ethos is that we only use the best, all-natural products and to bring a little bit of affordable luxury into the lives of Kiwis this Christmas - and beyond!"
