Southern Wild Co

A sense of Australia.

Working in partnership with Australian artists and iconic bush poetry, we take inspiration from the Australian landscape to craft scented homewares that promote a sense of this beautiful place we call home. Headquartered in an old shearing shed near the historic village of Rockley NSW, we work with our wonderful local team, combining our love of Australian literature, art and design with the science of scent-making to translate it into our distinctive brand.

The ocean as muse is such great fodder for a creative metaphor here and a brag of artistic skill there. And we’ve always been drawn to the symbolism sunk deep in a painted seascape. The best watery paintings can express an artist’s deeply held reverence, can illuminate the boundlessness, the mystery of. Seascapes can layer through centuries of historical lore and legend. The very best can have us smelling and feeling the salt, the wind, sun on skin!

As we soak up these last few days of seaside bliss, we’re sharing some of our favourite seascape artists over on the journal. Tap the link in bio and be transported to salty shores.

Everyone has a unique story to share, and ours revolves around a deep affection for the Australian landscape, which profoundly influences every aspect of our scented work.

Later this coming week, we will gather at the SWC Shedquarters with Sophie Hansen , with a fresh group of individuals eager to discover the precise methods of capturing the magic to craft their own narratives. Currently, only a few spots remain available.

A quick stop on our way back from the post office at one of our favourite spots, Native Dog Creek. You know, they found a massive diamond in this creek in the 1800s? Can you imagine?! Right now, it's a sparkling early spring swim for Boris before the 🐍 come out and so lovely to be out in the bush, surrounded by fragrant blossom.

We know nobody wants to hear the 'C' word in September but it's when we always shoot our festive season campaign and this year we're sharing it with our Masterclass.

When Southern Wild Co was just a tiny seed of an idea, we stood looking lovingly at the Australian Impressionist paintings and knew that we wanted to do so much more than just make nice candles. We wanted to create Australian-made scented wares that would resonate and inspire through our own love of the Australian landscape, art and poetry. ⁠

As our 5th birthday sale continues, it would be remiss of us not to mention the amazing artists whose work inspired each of the candles in our Signature Range. Each collaboration is devoted to a piece of the Australian landscape and has been captured in scented wax to evoke a feeling or memory of those places we know and love. ⁠

Use the code CELEBRATE5 to experience your own olfactory piece of the Australian landscape until this coming Sunday. If you would like to learn more about our artist collaborations, visit the link above and click on 'Discover the Scent Stories'.⁠

Our story

Southern Wild Co was founded by two friends who share a deep love for the Australian bush and all that it inspires.

Our work with Southern Wild Co is informed by our younger years growing up in the country and now, making our homes in the bush. We sought a way to share the evocative nature of wild Australian landscapes with friends and family, both here and overseas – and discovered the power of scent, captivated by its ability to arouse emotion and trigger memories of home in us all.

Working remotely with a small team from a converted woolshed near Rockley NSW, we’ve combined our love of Australian literature, design and art with the science of scent-making to translate it into our distinctive brand.

We invite you to share a little bit of the fragrance and wild beauty of Australia with Southern Wild Co.
