Hand poured, soy wax candles. Made in rural England.



Luxury from simplicity. It’s a belief that determines the scents and crafts we select to produce our small batch candles. We take pride in each candle being hand poured with the finest grade premium soy wax blend. Our fragrance oils are sustainably sourced from London to Lebanon, using only the finest oils to ensure each candle fills your home with fragrance. All our candles are poured into vintage whiskey tumblers with hand finished cork stoppers to retain the scent. Our unique blend of wax and oil surrounds pure Egyptian cotton wicks to provide an average burn time of over 50 hours.



We know that you want to make informed decisions about what you buy, and that you're interested in the provenance and sustainability of products. As a British company, we're proud to play a part in that - all our candles are designed and made right here in England.
