For Lovers and Spenders
An impressive shop front
As soon as you walk into Dusk you feel immediately relaxed. The light are dim and the aroma sweet. I think this would be one of the best places to work and I noticed the staff seem very relaxed. No wonder. It's also a great place to be tempted to spend money in the hope of creating such a lovely ambience at home. I bet this place is flat out near Valentine's Day.
Which type did you want?
Dusk is primarily known for being a premium retailer of luxury and exotic candles. I am told they always burn evenly. Apparently this matters to some people although I must say that I have never even noticed, let alone been bothered, by supposed erratic burning behaviour of candles.
More than just candles In addition to their large exclusive collection of decadent candles, they also sell contemporary home décor and gifts including body wash, hand creams, body wash, music, home fragrance, flowers; all things to pamper, make an impression or just spoil a loved one. I was interested to see they have in-store informational videos. I guess this will increasingly become the norm.
On their website they promise you'll find something perfect for your special someone as keepsakes and special tokens of appreciation. They have ideas for all special occasions, including Halloween. Dusks also stock a range of bonbonniere for a romantic, elegant touch to wedding days.
Special deals To my surprise there are ninety stores (and an online shop) in Australia. They are proud of their Australian-made product and are a wholly Australian-owned company. If you subscribe to Dusk's news, which includes the latest deals, offers and new arrivals they will give you a thank you gift - $10 off your first purchase.
Dusk produce over six million candles per year. Yes that's right – one for every four Australians. I suppose they are dispensable but what a clever trade. What other industry makes a product that you have to replace because you just burnt the damn thing?
