Cloudburst candle

(3 customer reviews)
The mountainside after rain

Bergamot, lavender, basil, lemon and lime, and ozonic notes, along with the beguiling scent of wild mountain fennel and rockrose.

Cloudburst is inspired by the mountainside after a summer storm, when the rain clouds part and strong sunshine lances through, stirring up a heavy mist of fragrance.  In this haze, notes from our herb garden mingle with fresh citrus from our lemon and lime trees, along with the signature fragrances of the wild mountainside.

We’ve always thought of this as a sister fragrance to First Light; in First Light it’s all clarity and freshness, whereas Cloudburst seems older and wiser – but just as beautiful.

    I’m a new La Montana fan, after reaching out to the company’s lovely founders in search of a gift recommendation for a specific scent note…
    The response was friendly and helpful, and my resulting order (First Light and August Sunset – both wonderful) came with some room mist samples, including Cloudburst.

    Finally getting to the point (!): I’m so beguiled by the beautiful complexity of Cloudburst. Experimenting with “fresh air” fragrances has mostly been a bust for me: even with indie luxe brands, “breezy” notes tend to mean all the sledgehammer subtlety of fabric softener. But this is such an elusive, multilayered blend – bright and clean, yes, but with a heady intensity (a kind of old-growth weathered-ness?) underneath that keeps me coming back for more. Extra kudos for using lavender notes in a way even this lifelong lavender-avoider loves!

    Oh, and the artwork. Spanish scenes are a welcome step change from the millennial minimalist design schtick that most artisanal brands default to. The scents are unique and evocative of a specific place/time/mood, so makes sense that the art should take us there…
    Bit of a long and general review, but thanks for an all-round lovely sensory experience in the depths of winter!

      Ruth! The only thing we love more than a good review is a beautifully written good review. This has raised the bar to a whole new level. Thank you so much. XXX

    This is my favourite candle ever, and I’ve used a lot of scented candles. It has a lovely warm scent that even makes the house smell nice the next day, and fills whatever room it’s in while burning. I bought a second one after a few days of using my first one because I didn’t want to run out!

      Aedín – thank you, and sorry I’ve only just seen this message. So lovely to hear that it’s your favourite – obviously we love all our children equally 😉

    I’m a complete candle nut and my friend introduced me to La Montana. I’ve been waiting for a sale on Cloudburst, as after receiving a pack of scent cards, this was one of my favourites. I can honestly say your candles are the most unique exquisite scents I’ve ever come across! Beautifully packaged, too. I’m almost too sad to have to light the candle, it’s like a piece of art!
    Cloudburst is fresh and zingy, but really relaxing too. Thank you, I’m such a fan!

      Katherine – we don’t know whether we’re blushing, or flushed with pride. Thank you so much. What a lovely review!
