This is Damselfly: The modern lifestyle game changers. Intuitive and innovative, with a healthy dose of humour.
We are an Australian lifestyle brand, here to enhance your world with a careful curation of beautifully designed products. We are a passionate female lead team, with a sparkling sense of humour and a keen eye for considered style.
We keep it real and craft what we love because we know you’ll love it too. We produce thoughtful products that engage with your sense of self, style and contemporary culture. And make you laugh at the same time, because we are all about lighting you up from the inside out.
We are home to the original quote candle, but we don’t stop there…
We produce a broad range of coconut - soy based candles, alongside an iconic wine range, lush body care and covetable stationary. To harbour that sense of personal connection with our customers, we weave our key themes of witty word smithery and ethereal zodiac references across our product offerings, creating an instantly recognisable style.
At the heart of the brand lies a belief in making positive change and promoting sustainable design, so our conscious creations are designed in house and produced locally. Our products use natural fragrance, non-toxic coconut-soy based wax, and are all vegan friendly & cruelty free because we invest in minimising our impact on the earth and value the wellness of our customers.
Think of us as risk takers, glass ceiling breakers, free spirits and extraordinary makers who are changing the way you view self-care and home styling.
Bold, fierce, and kinda badass. This is our story.
