Notes on scentEnglish Fig is reminiscent of a sun-warmed garden, with a velvety and sweet yet fresh scent. It combines green and fruity notes – leafy figs, dried fruits and tart cassis – with a subtly floral hint of rose, wood and the honeyed, resinous fragrance of amber. Our Bluebell & Honeysuckle candle is scented, as you’d expect, with the classic notes of bluebell (it’s a member of the hyacinth flower family so it has a similar smell) and the sweeter scent of honeysuckle. This combination is balanced by a green, earthy base to prevent it being too sugary. For those that relish the scent of a light, herbal blend, our Rosemary & Thyme candle is a must have. It’s refreshing, energising and its citrus and subtle, mossy base keeps the herbal balance in check.
Layering scentEach of these scents also comes in diffuser form, which you could use together to create fragrant layers. A diffuser will circulate a gentle aroma around a room for weeks but having a candle on hand too means you can enhance the fragrance.
Doing the right thingWe work with a small team that know all about making delicately scented candles. They’re based in a Hampshire market town where they create the ideas for the fragrances, and these are then made into candles in the UK. As well as the minimal carbon footprint, the contents are made from natural plant wax (a unique blend of soya, coconut and rapeseed) all of which are obtained from sustainable sources, and the candles are packaged in 100% recycled, FSC certified card. Our supplier has also created the brown jars from 15% recycled glass and, once the candle has burnt down, you can reuse the pot – why not turn it into a stationery holder or give it a place in the bathroom to store cotton buds?
