Beauty news: Glasshouse Fragrances unveil Dance of the Dragon for Lunar New Year

Commencing on February 9, Chinese Lunar New Year this year will be celebrated globally by billions. And for those unaware, 2024 is the Year of the Dragon; a symbol of stellar fortune, enhanced strength, and superb health in Chinese culture. Superstitious individuals are quick to point out that the harbouring of dragon motifs and/or items in hues of red and gold are guaranteed to bolster one’s auspiciousness—so, naturally, the beauty industry had to answer the call with an array of Chinese New Year 2024 limited edition releases.
Represented by the only mythical — and the most powerful — creature of the twelve-animal Chinese zodiac, the Year of the Dragon is considered particularly special. The legendary magical beast is symbolic of authority, honour and dignity, and as the luckiest of the twelve animals, the dragon is thought to signify unprecedented opportunities.
To sum it up, 2024, the Year of the Dragon, encourages us to be ambitious, creative, and strong in facing challenges. By setting big goals, being imaginative, staying resilient, building good connections, and balancing our efforts, we can make this year successful. How great is that?
In celebration of the year of the Dragon, Glasshouse Fragrances has launched a limited edition 380g soy candle, Dance of the Dragon. Eschewing the more predictable red and gold packaging, this exquisite fragrance instead uses Red Sandalwood and Patchouli to embody the spirit of this auspicious celebration, offering a sensory journey that honours tradition and invites prosperity into your home.
Dance of the Dragon captures the essence of the Lunar New Year holiday through a mesmerising blend of notes including Mandarin, Amber, Green Cypress, Vanilla, Champaca and more. Not just a home fragrance; it’s a symbol of new beginnings, an emblem of good luck and a representation of prosperous journeys ahead.
I am obsessed with the packaging, which adorned with intricate details, is a testament to the artistry of the fine fragrance within. The ceramic vessel showcases a modern take on Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, evoking a sense of elegance and tradition. Look closely, and you’ll find the Glasshouse Fragrances symbol woven into the custom-created artwork, which is an absolute joy to behold.
The scent itself is a blend of Champaca, Red Sandalwood, and Amber, which surge together to “erase the past and make you reborn with power”, while Vanilla, Cedarwood, Musk, and Patchouli add to its intricacy for a fragrance you can’t help but fall for.
A limited edition release that you’d be mad to miss out on, Dance of the Dragon is available now.
