The Collaboration

This year our Creative Director, Nathan Lee, put forward an exciting idea about a collaboration with Australia's own Maison Blanche. We were searching for an opportunity to work with a strong local brand with similar values to ours and the same attitude towards premium quality standards. Maison Blanche was that brand, who have grown rapidly this year and even recently added retail giant Sephora to their list of outlets. 

Each Maison Blanche candle is meticulously handmade in Sydney from the highest quality 100% pure soy wax, with no nasty additives. They use lead and toxin free cotton wicks to ensure a safe burn and use only the best fragrance oils to complete every Maison Blanche candle.

In an exclusive collaboration, Mind Methods crafted its own range of Maison Blanche scented candles, producing a limited edition run of 50 co-branded candles with the scent selected by Mind Methods. 
 

The Process

Nathan started the rare project by attending a candle production and pouring workshop, in a behind-the-scenes experience at the Maison Blanche headquarters.

Needless to say, Nathan's creative flair, steady hand and attention to detail, flowed through the creation process. With much care taken, Nathan poured each of these candles by hand. This resulted in the production of 50 limited edition candles with a scent described as "woody with hints of dark berries"... perfect for the festive season!
