Hi! I’m Champagne Shelley and welcome to my world 🍾
I’ve been an entertainment journalist and event manager for over 25 year in the U.S. and Australia, working with celebrities ranging from Ted Kennedy and Deepak Chopra to Jack Nicholson and Kim Kardashian.
I've attended many high-end events, dinners, launches and premieres in my time - usually with a glass of bubbles in my hand. It always seemed like such a waste when the staff would just toss all the beautiful champagne bottles in the bin at the end of the night. But what can you really do with a champagne bottle that doesn’t look a bit tacky? Stick a single long-stemmed rose in it? Maybe one white candlestick? Or just leave it empty on a bookshelf as a reminder of a special celebration?
I decided to give these beautiful bottles a second chance by up-cycling them into something useful that will live on. I’ve created a luxury candle range featuring three of my favourite French-themed scents – Parisian Pear, French Fig and Champagne & Strawberries. I’ve also used wooden wicks that crackle when they burn to evoke a rustic French feeling.
I’m a great believer in style AND sustainability and once the candle has been used you can recycle the vessel once again – they’re great for flowers, makeup brushes, pencils or art supplies - the possibilities are endless.
Thank you for joining me on this adventure. I hope you enjoy your candle and playing a little part in helping the planet.
