Glasshouse Fragrances - Hong Kong Candle



Hong Kong is the latest limited edition release from Glasshouse Fragrances. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it (even though I hadn't smelt it yet). I fell in love with the glass instantly. How can one not love a hot pink glass with purple print? Luckily, I also fell in love with the scent which is named Double Happiness. 


Hong Kong is inspired by the vibrant & glamorous (as the name suggests) Hong Kong. Two versions of the Hong Kong candle are available - Day & Night. I purchased the Day version. The difference between the two is the glass jar. Day is pink glass with  purple print and Night is green glass with  blue print. I could not smell any noticeable difference with the scent of the two candles. Though the saleswoman tried to convince me there was a difference. 


I am not good at describing fragrances but I find Hong Kong to be quite a sweet floral with a green base. Does that even make sense? What I am trying to say is the scent is sweet but with more to it. Yup, hopeless at describing fragrances!

Here is the official fragrance description:
Top - Bergamot, Dewy Greens, Orange Zest
Middle - Jasmine, Ginger, Magnolia
Base - Green Tea, Crushed Tonka Bean, Green Foliage


Hong Kong is just as potent as the other Glasshouse Fragrances candles that I have tried. They are the type of candles that you can have lit in one room yet be able to smell it right through the house. Hong Kong is in no way over powering though, it is a strong yet subtle scent. 

Overall, Hong Kong is a candle I am really enjoying and am glad to have in my ever growing collection of candles. 

Hong Kong is available now for $42.95 and is limited edition (and limited edition Glasshouse candles are known to sell out quickly). Glasshouse Fragrances can be purchased directly from Glasshouse here or from Luxola here

  3. Mum and I checked these out recently but they weren't really to our tastes unfortunately, mum went for Sistine Chapel and I couldn't resist Rio De Jeneiro but I was desperately trying to make myself like these Honk Kong ones because the jars are so pretty.
