Vintage BookshopThe musky, woody scent of this candle is reminiscent of days spent leafing through pages of vintage leather books at the library and exploring dusty antique stores. With a rich and faintly masculine aroma, featuring hints of cashmere, leather, sandalwood, amber, vanilla and warm ginger, it’s the perfect companion to rainy days spent curled up reading at home.

Zen: Cassis, Rose, Green Tea: Combining cassis, violet leaf and green fig leaf at the top with rose, geranium and matcha green tea at the very heart, and soft amber, musk and cedarwood complete this beautifully composed fragrance. 

Tomato Leaf: Vibrant top notes of tomato leaf and the freshness of apple, rhubarb, lemon, grapefruit, galbanum and eucalyptus give a sharp, fresh, green character. These lead to a base of plum, rose leaf and jasmine with sandalwood and moss to finish. An incredibly green and fresh scent! 

Wild Fig & Oakmoss: a wonderfully woody and fruity fragrance, combining aromas of ripe fig, bergamot, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin and apple with hints of rosemary, orange blossom and rose, and finishing on a strong base of amber, musk, sandalwood and cedarwood.

Fresh Bread: Bring the comforting smell of freshly baked bread into your home. Love the smell of warm baguette? This candle will remind you of a walk past a Parisian boulangerie! Buttery, doughy and yeasty with a faint hint of vanilla.

Spiced Orange: The heady sentimental smell of Christmas spices, this scent has tones of orange, cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Eco friendly, vegan and cruelty free ingredients only. Hand-poured in England.

Enchanted Forest: Evoking the fresh smell of a walk in a pine forest, this scent has the fresh fragrance of pine needles, cedar & oakmoss. 

Winter SolsticeBlends citrus, grapefruit and pine wood to evoke the scent of fresh snowfall, with a heart of red berries and lychee and a base of vanilla and powdery musk.

Frankincense & Myrrh: The resin frankincense immersed in warm amber, rock rose and myrrh and complimented by woody cedar, vetiver and patchouli.

LavenderFresh and floral lavender with bergamot, white tea, sage, rosemary and rose, finishing with soft musk and white woods notes.

Sage: Floral, earthy, fruity and nutty, and has a soft, sweet fragrance with a hint of fresh eucalyptus.

Drift: A tranquil coastal aroma combining subtle notes of almond and clove balanced with delicate jasmine and heliotrope.

Cardamom CoffeeBringing the smell of fresh ground coffee and spicy cardamom to your home. A rich and comforting fragrance with the exotic appeal of a Middle Eastern souk.

Amber & Rock SaltThis marine candle has a heady amber and rock salt scent, slightly woody driftwood; the perfect cool water fragrance to remind you of the seaside. A very ozonic, clean, oceanic scent inspired by a fresh sea breeze, and cold, clean, salty water. 

Clove, Honey, Muska calming scent with warm notes of clove, honey, musk and floral and woody undertones. This soft, warming, subtle fragrance has top notes of clove, honey, peach and pepper, with a heart of jasmine, muguet, rose and ylang ylang, finishing on amber, musk and patchouli.
