• First Light candle

    First Light candle – A unique, intoxicating blend of wild, aromatic mountain flora: fennel, bergamot, rosemary, mountain pepper, and rockrose.

    First Light is La Montaña’s signature fragrance, in the sense that it was our original inspiration: the fragrance of our new mountain home at dawn on a summer’s day.


    All our candles are 220gms of top quality wax (burning for at least 40 hours), include a high percentage of natural and essential oils, and are hand poured by artisan candlemakers.

    All candles are gift-boxed and cellophane-wrapped.

    Burn Time

    40 hours or more

    Candle Care

    To get the most from your candle, trim the wick to 5mm every time before you light it. After burning (1-3 hours to fill your room with beautiful fragrance), re-centre the wick, if necessary, while the candle is liquid, to ensure an even burn. Never leave a lit candle unattended, or in a breeze.

      “Even before I lit my First Light candle I knew I’d found something incredibly special. Then it got even better! It’s really unusual but so beautiful. I LOVE it!”

      I love this candle- it’s like a walk in the Mediterranean on a spring day. Fresh, aromatic, sophisticated and the scent really lasts. Highly recommended.

      An absolutely stunning fragrance, just beautiful. Fills the room with a gorgeous fragrance that lasts. I will definitely be buying this candle again.

      The packaging of this candle is just gorgeous but what an even more beautiful surprise when I lit First Light – it’s a subtle and incredibly unique scent, soft, “herby”, gentle and slightly sweet, it really grew on me – a very pretty, natural, mountainside-type scent for summer evenings. It sort of captures that Mediterranean hillside scent – those (occasional?!) mornings when you wake extra early on a summer holiday, and you’re the first one sipping your coffee on the terrace as the sun comes up and the day starts to warm up. Magical.

      Love this. I wouldn’t usually buy this kind of luxury product, but it is fantastic. I can burn it for a couple of hours and the scent lingers for days and days. The scent is fresh, clean, real and not at all synthetic. I will definitely be buying again.

      What a fantastci candle.. the smell is heavenly and it doesn’t take long before the room smells amazing. Even when it is not alight you get a waft of the scent. Divine…. I even kept the box for a few days as that smelt so good!
      Just bought Galad De Notche which I am looking forward to immensely….
      Fantastic candles.
