Havana Home is an independent home fragrance company in the city of Sydney. Owned and operated by Creative Director, Judith Bruce, Havana Home is the culmination of a lifelong love of fragrance and candles and wonderful memories of a childhood in central western New South Wales.
Although it has taken a very twisty path, the journey to this point began in central New South Wales on a farm. Being a kid on a farm does give you time to explore your senses and watch the craft of those around you.
My mother made beeswax candles when I was little and used to give them to her friends as gifts; the kitchens of my grandmothers always smelt amazing and my father and grandfather both devotedly grew fruit when not working the farm. I was also surrounded by captivating aromas which will stick with me for life: rain hitting the parched earth for the first time in months; fresh tomato & mint sandwiches; straw; harvest; wattle; paddy melon; sun ripened citrus. The list goes on and on.
