There are 4 qualities that set apart a luxury candle from regular candles: fragrance, wax, wick and container. Luxury scented candles use blended essential oils to create unique, distinctive and deeply evocative fragrances. Their wax isn’t made from paraffin but from soy wax or other alternatives that are eco-friendly, burn longer, and have a stronger throw. Their wicks provide a clean burn to better fill rooms with their fragrance, and are lead-free. And last but certainly not least, the container or candle holder of a luxury scented candle is artfully designed to complement the fragrance it releases.

As candlemakers who delight in scents that transport you, we take great care in the preparation of our candles.

Our candles are hand poured in small batches by skilled British candle pourers in the traditional and (in our opinion) best way. We select and blend essential oils and premium fragrances that carry deeply evocative scents, and we use natural, vegan friendly soy wax that has a strong throw and burns cleanly for 30 to 50% longer than mineral wax. Lastly, our ceramic candle holders are handmade and hand decorated by a small team of expert ceramicists based in the heart of the Potteries, Stoke-on-Trent, to create candles that look as good as they smell. The ceramic candle holders are designed to last a lifetime – they are both refillable and reusable.

We believe soy wax is the best choice for scented candles for three reasons: it burns for up to 50% longer than mineral or paraffin wax; it offers a strong throw to fill rooms with fragrance (and even when unlit can give you a potpourri effect); and because it is all-natural, it burns cleanly and doesn’t release any toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants to trigger allergies.

Scented candles made from soy wax tend to last twice as long as those made from mineral or paraffin wax. That’s one of many reasons why our luxury scented candles are made from soy wax – 300g of our vegan friendly soy wax provides a burn time of approximately 90 hours. Our luxury scented candles carry evocative fragrances that are inspired by or feature notes of florals and the garden, fresh / ozonic, citrus, woods & spice.

It’s best to keep your candle lit for no longer than 4 hours. This prevents your wick from mushrooming, which is when the wick burns faster than the wax, resulting in the wick absorbing the wax and making it difficult for you to relight.

Please remember to never leave your candle unattended.

Our luxury scented candles are made from all-natural, vegan friendly soy wax and offer a burn time of 90 hours. To ensure you get the most out of those 90 hours, we recommend the following:

  • Trim the candle wick to 3mm before first lighting it for a clean burn.
  • When you first use your candle, keep it away from draughts and lit for around 2 hours, or until the wax has pooled to the edge. This will prevent tunnelling (which is when only a small circle of wax around the wick melts, rather than the entire surface of the candle burning evenly).
  • Ideally, let the candle burn for 1 to 2 hours at a time.
  • Avoid letting the candle burn all the way to the bottom. This protects the ceramic container and prevents it from becoming too hot to touch. And always protect the surface on which your candle sits.
