Qasturi (pronounced kastoori) is the Malay word for musk, an aromatic substance commonly used as base notes in perfumery. Qasturi is the creation of Malay Australian Roslan Ibrahim and comprises a unique range of luxurious scented candles and reed diffusers designed to create an atmosphere of comfort and serenity. Inspiration for the fragrances come from a variety of exotic locations and all Qasturi candles, reed diffusers, room sprays and soy melts are individually hand-made and hand-poured by Roslan in his Noosa Hinterland studio with meticulous attention to detail to maintain the highest possible quality. His candles are made using the finest natural soy wax and premium quality fragrance oils and essential oils and are produced using clean renewable energy and pure rain water.
“I first discovered scented candles as a young boy growing up in a poor family in Singapore. I used to help out by selling my mother’s traditional cakes door-to-door and one day one of my neighbours was burning a scented candle and I was amazed by the wonderful fragrance. So I started scraping together what little pocket money I had to buy my own scented candles and I treasured every opportunity to burn them and they made me feel tranquil and relaxed” Roslan Ibrahim, Qasturi founder
After immigrating to Australia in 2010, Roslan learned to make his own scented candles and reed diffusers and has now turned his life-long passion into an exciting enterprise, Qasturi.
