Glasshouse Fragrances Captures the 1920s with New Humidor Collection: Limited-edition Trio of Transportive Scents That Pay Homage to the Speakeasies and Smoking Rooms of the Jazz Age
Use the power of scent to journey back in time to the Roaring Twenties with three new art deco-inspired candles and diffuser
New York, NY (PRUnderground) September 1st, 2022
Glasshouse Fragrances, a leader in the Australian fragrance market now available to U.S. shoppers, announced today the release of a new art-deco inspired collection, “Humidor,” evoking a nostalgic but contemporary, smoky homage to the 1920s. The Humidor Collection includes three decadent candles: After Hours, Heavy Petal, Scarlet Nights and a Heavy Petal Fragrance Diffuser for flameless fragrance.
Available today on the Glasshouse Fragrances website, select boutiques across the country, as well as Amazon.com, “Humidor” is an olfactory nod to a 1920’s delicately smoked and gilded speakeasy.
“When it comes to sensual winter fragrances there is nothing better than a scent that transports you to somewhere warm, comforting, and intriguing,” said Glasshouse Fragrances founder and CEO, Nicole Eckels. “The sultry scents in the Humidor collection combined with their art deco-inspired sophistication calls forth visions of bourbon-soaked lounges and a 1920s wonderland.”
Embark on the prohibition-era ambiance of “After Hours,” a warm, tobacco, and inviting scent of ginger, black pepper, and saffron blossomed into soft woods layered over a base of creamy musk. Think of rum and sweet vanilla swirled with leather and toasty tobacco transforming senses to a clandestine bar with soft jazz music and free-flowing champagne.
Next up, in both candle and diffuser form, is “Heavy Petal,” a sandalwood overdosed dark, floral, slow dance amongst smoked woods. This scent is a ticket to a ‘20s-inspired ballroom with voluptuous blooms, toasted spices and smoked lavender.
Lasty, inspired by the Jazz Age is “Scarlet Nights,” a black cherry and toasty tobacco leaf scent evocative of the roaring twenties. With visions of after-hour nightclubs and a hedonistic lifestyle, splashes of rose, creamy sandalwood, and earthy vetiver encompass this fragrance.
Each candle is dramatically presented in a sumptuous glass vessel adorned with art deco-inspired patterns and accented with shiny foil – housed in a package that is straight out of the Gilded Age.
Triple Scented, hand poured in Australia, 2 x Natural Cotton Wicks, decorated in reusable glass vessels, Soy Blend Wax for a clean and even burn.

About Nicole Eckels:
Born and raised in New York, Nicole began her career as a makeup artist before making a career move into B2B sales which found her in San Francisco. At this time, Nicole yearned for a more empowering
and challenging creative outlet where she could express her passion for the bold and the vibrant. It was at this time that she sought out the sunny shores of Australia with her son where she found her
‘true calling’. While shopping in David Jones to replace a beloved candle purchased in New York City, Nicole couldn’t find what she was looking for. Noting the high-end brands from Europe and non-
fragranced, low-end brands, Nicole saw a clear gap in the market for fine fragranced, high-quality candles at accessible price-points and, after months of researching Glasshouse Fragrances was born.
