Ampersand Candle Co is a small batch candle company based in rural England.

We launched in 2014 by husband and wife, Sam and Charlotte Gough.

Simple things, made well.
In our case, the humble candle.

Ampersand is a soy wax candle company that features handmade products designed for the home and manufactured in Britain to exacting standards. Passionate about craftsmanship and good design, we are inspired by the great outdoors and hardworking rural clothing. 

We make candles, nothing else. We take pride in our singular approach. Each one is lovingly hand crafted and designed to live alongside the things you already own.



Rather than big claims and testaments, our values are simply the framework for everything we do. Ampersand is about creating something wonderful with care and craft. And we’re proud to share that with you…




Isn't life a lot easier when you trust someone, something.


If you don't believe in it, if you don't love it... what's the point?

Hard Work

It's never crowded along the extra mile.


...not quantity.


Because the details matter.



We ended up with a range of 11 fragrances that we loved. Just the right mix of styles, from the sweet and sublime to the exotic and spicy. You can find out more about them all here.

There’s something for everyone.

Made in small batches, each candle is hand poured into old fashioned double whiskey tumblers with cork stoppers to retain the scent. They’re then packed into a beautiful black gift box with raffia surround. Each candle will see you through an average burn time of 60 hours. See the entire process here.
