First Light candle

(11 customer reviews)
Wild mountain flora

A unique, bewitching blend of wild, aromatic mountain flora: fennel, bergamot, rosemary, mountain pepper, and rockrose.

On our mountain, at first light, there’s a heavenly fragrance in the air; before anyone starts an engine, or lights a fire, the air is clear, and still, and silent.  The first breath of the day carries the perfume of wild mountain herbs, the alchemy of which, blended naturally on the breeze, weaves a magical spell…  The inspiration for our first ever candle.  A new day, a new life – and a memory we didn’t know we had.

    This is one of my favourite La Montana scents. It makes for perfect present as it scents has a broad appeal. There is no way the recipient wouldn’t fall in love with it. It’s a great way to introduce someone to La Montana.

    • Jonathan Hall

      Thank you – we can’t help being a little over-fond of this, our very first fragrance.

  2. Tracy (verified owner)

    Love this fragrance, both fresh and warming at the same time. Will buy again and again!

    • Jonathan Hall

      Thanks Tracy – of course we’re not allowed favourites, but we love it, too!

    What a fantastci candle.. the smell is heavenly and it doesn’t take long before the room smells amazing. Even when it is not alight you get a waft of the scent. Divine…. I even kept the box for a few days as that smelt so good!
    Just bought Galad De Notche which I am looking forward to immensely….
    Fantastic candles.

    Love this. I wouldn’t usually buy this kind of luxury product, but it is fantastic. I can burn it for a couple of hours and the scent lingers for days and days. The scent is fresh, clean, real and not at all synthetic. I will definitely be buying again.

    The packaging of this candle is just gorgeous but what an even more beautiful surprise when I lit First Light – it’s a subtle and incredibly unique scent, soft, “herby”, gentle and slightly sweet, it really grew on me – a very pretty, natural, mountainside-type scent for summer evenings. It sort of captures that Mediterranean hillside scent – those (occasional?!) mornings when you wake extra early on a summer holiday, and you’re the first one sipping your coffee on the terrace as the sun comes up and the day starts to warm up. Magical.

    An absolutely stunning fragrance, just beautiful. Fills the room with a gorgeous fragrance that lasts. I will definitely be buying this candle again.

    This candle is everything I hoped for & more….
    Incredible blend of fragrance. Delicious. You must invest in one to appreciate…….

    I love this candle- it’s like a walk in the Mediterranean on a spring day. Fresh, aromatic, sophisticated and the scent really lasts. Highly recommended.

    “Even before I lit my First Light candle I knew I’d found something incredibly special. Then it got even better! It’s really unusual but so beautiful. I LOVE it!”
