The Cahaya Story

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle,
and the life of the single candle will not be shortened.
Happiness never decreases from being shared.

Cahaya Candles is an artisanal, small batch Australian home fragrance brand with a strong focus on original design elements.

‘CAHAYA’ means light in the Malay language and is inspired by the fragrant tapestry of the Asian archipelago interwoven with modern Australian influences. Our debut collection features scents inspired by exotic flavours and dreamscapes with original box artwork featuring illustrations based on vintage Peranakan Chinese porcelain ware motifs and traditional Batik fabric patterns.  

Infused with artfully blended fragrances, Cahaya’s luxury aromatic natural soy candles have been created with lead-free cotton wicks and are made from 100 percent natural soy wax which is also kosher, halal, non-toxic and biodegradable. Our soy candles burn cleanly to illuminate, scent and transform spaces into living sanctuaries of light and inspiration.

All production elements of our candles are sourced from local Australian owned businesses and every candle is lovingly hand poured in Melbourne with the utmost care and precision.
