Introducing Ophidian | Soaps and Candles by Hopeless Lingerie
While we've been busy sewing your knickers and bralettes we've also had a very exciting project bubbling along in the background. Its taken nearly a year but we are finally ready to announce our new range of soaps and candles.
We collaborated with both an established Melbourne based candle maker and a soap maker, to create a unique scent we believe captured everything that was true to Hopeless Lingerie. We chose a combination of Cedarwood, Neroli, Sweet Orange, and Black Pepper essential oils to offer something that had just the right balance of darkness and romance, just like our lingerie.
The candles are made with soy wax and cotton wicks, free from paraffin or harmful chemicals. The soaps are made using a slow-set soap making method to preserve the healing properties of the ingredients. Both are cruelty free and vegan.
We are very excited to be expanding our brand into this area, with 'Ophidian' the first of 3 scents coming throughout the year. Good things really do come to those who wait.
