Interiority: There’s magic in the house

Introducing our new Interiority series – a mishmash of inspiration drawn from one of Southern Wild Co’s signature fragrances. This week we’re starting with Magic Pudding because, ’tis the season after all...

The Magic Pudding is a magical slice of Australian Christmas served up in whisky-tinted glass with spicy notes of baked citrus, cardamon & cloves. Think cheeky puddings and all those childhood memories wrapped in warm aromas of sandalwood & vanilla. It represents the heart-of-the-home, radiating love and the delicious scents of an anticipated meal. Nostalgia infused and vintage inspired, the mood is joyful and festive, spicy red with dinner plates stacked high on unprecious surfaces. Simple bunches of native leaves and blossom abound and there's a contented and connected feeling.

Huge clouds of brown butterflies swirl up into the dazzling light, parrots swoop to grassy earth, honeyeaters ravish the sweet flowers of the bottlebrush, echidnas trundle steadily in search of each other, lizards dart among ants and ancient rocks, the fine branchlets of the manna gums quiver to the mating growls of koalas, ibises stroll and feast on grasshoppers and gleaming Christmas beetles hang from eucalyptus leaves like small green baubles. The birds sing gloriously and not a wrong note is heard. This is Christmas in the [Australian] bush.
