About


Lisoire, launched in 2010 by Lisa Jayne Cramer, initially began in a provencal inspired studio nestled amongst Peppermint, Manna and Stringy Bark Eucalyptus trees in Central Victoria. Ten years on Lisa continues to create soft, ambient, fragrant candlelight in the little village of Trentham, Victoria. Inspired by French companies Cire Trudon est. 1643, Diptyque est. 1961, Astier de Villatte est. 1996 and Frederic Malle Editions de Parfums est. 2000, Lisoire candles are lovingly handmade by blending the purest sustainably sourced soy wax with 100% pure natural plant essences.
    Each time you light a Lisoire candle you can be assured of it’s purity and cleanliness. Lisoire candles do not release any nasty carbons into the atmosphere, and contain 100% vegetable wax made from pure sustainably sourced soybean oil. Lisoire candles are all natural, biodegradable and free of synthetics, petroleum, paraffin, palm oil and other petrochemical by-products. All are created and hand poured by Lisa of Lisoire into elegant frosted glass vessels (285g) with woven cotton wicks that burn slowly from 55 to 60 hours. The combination of wax and pure natural plant essences optimises the delicate diffusion of each carefully created candle. Each candle is wrapped with 100% recycled tissue paper that has been printed with Lisoire's signature garden using eco-sustainable soy based ink.


    The history of perfumery dates back to Antiquity (greco-roman), the Middle Ages and the Arab world, the Renaissance and the emergence of perfumery at the Royal Court in France. Inspired by this and the Romantic Period, Lisa travelled to the south of France in 2012 to study the Art of Perfumery. Since then Lisa has been dedicated to creating pure, natural, ambient candlelight with a delicate fragrance, and continues to compose, blend and fine tune her candles for her loyal clients in Australia.

    Olfactory recognition, the creation of accords and the structure of perfume are all important factors in creating Lisoire candles. Available exclusively online at Lisoire.

    All beautifully created and handmade by Lisa of Lisoire.

    Why the name Lisoire you might ask? This was the first word my eldest brother spoke to me when he miraculously emerged from an induced coma many years ago. He had suffered a severe rupture of an undetected brain aneurysm. He was not expected to survive however, following an 8 hour operation, nine days of an induced coma and months of rehabilitation, he awoke and thankfully lives and thrives still to this day.

    Knowing his sister was a total francophile his first words upon seeing me, when I came to see him in ICU, were ... 'Ah, Lisoire !'. So when I started my candle business back in 2010 I was searching for a name that could explain my penchant for all things french, my heart and my spirit. Lisoire was the obvious choice.

    I have two beautiful brothers and recently my other very creative brother proclaimed that, each time you receive a Lisoire Candle, you receive "Love in a Box". I thought to myself, yes! This proclamation is true!

    I hope you enjoy lighting your candle as much as I love making them for you.

    Be the light.
