The Alpine Lodge ceramic candle with 22 Carat gold within the illustration (as well as hand painted on the rim)
Evoking crisp snow topped slopes, a welcoming ski lodge, the sound of a crackling log fire and a cosy chair in which to relax.
Aromas of fir trees, pine needles, lavender, cinnamon, clove and Moss.
We spent many months developing our candles, so that you'd have something that you'd treasure and keep forever.

We believe candles should be a joy to smell, and fill the room with elegant notes that are so evocative they transport you to a forgotten past, a cherished memory, on an adventure you are yet to take.
So we spent many months perfecting each one of our fragrances so that the final result would be sophisticated, memorable and contain many layers of aroma.
We wanted the fragrance to be as beautiful as the illustration adorning it (and vice versa).
Our candles are not mass produced by factories and machines, they are hand poured in small batches by an expert team of British candle pourers in the traditional and (in our opinion) best way.
They are made with the finest quality eco soy & vegan friendly wax which are infused with our unique blend of essential oils and premium fragrances.
By making everything in small quantities, we can ensure that all aspects are of the highest quality and to our exacting standards.
Our fine china candle holders are made especially for us and are hand decorated by a small team of expert ceramicists who carefully and meticulously finish each one of them - including 22 carat gold detail (hand painted around the rim).
The team is based a few miles away from us; in the heart of the Potteries:- Stoke on Trent, and is run by a Father and Daughter team, David and Jenny (a family business like us). We love working with them because they care about their craft as much as we do.
Watch how they're made below.
Once the candle has melted, you will be left with a beautiful fine China container that you can use over and over again.
We launched refills for our single wick ceramic candles - so you can simply buy one and keep using your candle - watch video below to see how easy it is.
Simply wash out any reminents of wax with hot, soapy water and you'll have a beautiful, hand made vessel that you could use to drink from, keep your pens tidy on your desk, use as a vase/plant pot, or store something useful like in the images below:
The vegan friendly soy wax we use is from a sustainable source, and is cleaner burning than other waxes (such as paraffin/mineral wax) and contains no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it's less likely to trigger allergies. We use lead free (cotton) wicks for the same reason.
Soy wax also melts slower than mineral/parafin wax (which is a crude-oil by product), which mean they typically last 30-50% longer than their mineral wax candle counterparts.
Soy wax releases scent easier than paraffin candles to give a richer fragrance throw and 'Pot Pourri' effect when not lit.
The first time you light your candle, we'd advise you keep it lit for around 2 hours (and away from draughts), or untill the wax has pooled to the edge. This will prevent any subsequent tunneling.
Ideally you'd trim the candle's wick to around 3mm before you light it.
We'd also recommend burning your candle for 1-2 hours at a time.
Don't let it burn all the way to the bottom, and protect the surface the candle sits on.
Finally, please don't forget that Chase and Wonder candles are particularly social, and like to be given as gifts too.
I bought it for a friend, who I’ve not yet given to, however I can comment that on opening the box the smell was beautiful and delivery was fast. Thank you.
As these candles are intended as gifts and are beautifully gift wrapped i cannot tell you very much. I have tried sniffing the box and the faint smell is wonderful. It will be hard to give away! Shall I open one for myself as I have a birthday next week...yes I will!!!
What can I say a touch of class and style
Long lasting and delightful scent.
