Crisp Linen Candle Inspired by Lonsdale Street, Melbourne in the 1890s

Step back in time to the bustling streets of Lonsdale in 1890s Melbourne, where this vibrant locale was renowned for providing travellers and locals alike with a night's rest. Lonsdale Street was the heart of the city, adorned with magnificent hotel buildings, churches, restaurants, pubs, and even two large hospitals. It proudly housed the royal mint and courthouse, a testament to its historical significance. Named after Melbourne's first magistrate, William Lonsdale, the street's width was initially a point of contention, but visionary city planner Hoddle persuaded the Governor, Richard Bourke, to allow the larger street size. Thus, Lonsdale Street emerged as we know it today.

Among the notable residents was Caroline Hodgson, better known as 'Madame Brussels,' whose residence on Lonsdale Street drew clients from Parliament House and beyond. Amidst all the bustling activity, one can only imagine how the clean, refreshing fragrance of Crisp Linen wafted through the local streets on laundry days, a reminder of simpler times and immaculate linens fluttering in the breeze.
