hand poured

for lovers of colour, art + scent
Artist Sample Box

With so many of the artist sample packs being used for gifts, we thought it was time to jazz up the box. And make it extra gift worthy!

So we asked our graphic designer and creative magician Danielle, who worked her magic on the rest of our artist collection range, to work her magic again on our sample packs.

We hope you love them as much as we do!

Meet Carmel + Jess

Carmel started making candles in 2013 as a hobby whilst on maternity leave. This started with selling her hand poured pieces at markets throughout South Australia before launching the website in 2016. Fast forward to the launch of the Artist Collection in 2019, plus the the birth of two children and Aroma Pot Candles has now gone from Carmel's side hustle to full-time gig. She lovingly hand pours all of their candles in her home studio, located on the edge of the Barossa Valley.

Jess is a self-taught artist based on the South Coast of NSW. In 2019, after dedicating the past 7 years to raising her 2 children, she was inspired by her surroundings and dusted off the long-neglected paint brushes after a deep calling to re-ignite with her creativity. Jess's motto is that art has the power to heal, build connection and evoke a sense of calm and happiness.

Carmel + Jess instantly connected over their love of bold colour and art and collaborated in late 2019 to create 'The Australian Artist Collection'. A collection of candles inspired by Australia's flora and fauna. Pairing Jess's vibrant artwork with the unique scents of our native bushland.

Customer Love

The most divine smelling candles ever, perfectly complimented with @jesshutchinsonart gorgeous prints. I haven’t even taken them out of the box and my house already smells amazing. I purchased as gifts but now I have to reorders as I want to keep them for myself 🤭


Absolutely beautiful candles! The fragrance and attention to details is amazing! Plus when I received the delivery, there was a little surprise that made me feel so very special. Thank you! ♥️


Love, love, love my goodies that arrived today 😍. They smell amazing and the tins are perfect. Your collaboration with Jess will definitely be a huge success, congratulations to you both. Thanks so much for the free gift as well!
P.S. my daughter has claimed the choccy stick and marshmallows 🤣.


Carmel supplies our premium bed and breakfast The Clyde Greenock with an array of beautiful candles, diffusers and room sprays. We use these products throughout The Clyde and as token gifts for our special guests. Our guests frequently pass on feedback on the gorgeous fresh scents that greet them upon their arrival. Nothing is too much hassle for Carmel, from our own labelling to meeting to order new stock. Excellent customer service and wonderful products. And yes, I use them in my own home too! Love working with Carmel!


I came across Aroma Pot when I was picking my daughter's birthday cake up, the ladies home smelt delicious. I asked what it was and she very happily told me all about Aroma Pot. I recently made a purchase for a gift and when I opened the lid of each candle for a sniff I died and went to heaven! I will be a returning customer that's for sure and hopefully I might even be able to buy something for myself. You will not be disappointed!!!
