Our Fragrance Oil Scents


Scents can be very powerful.

Scents can evoke memories, allow you to relax within a moment, or stimulate dreams.

In addition to carefully choosing our ingredients, we have paid great attention to our choice of scents.

Although we have a couple of timeless classics, we have deliberately steered away from many of the popular cliché scents and instead we have created a selection of deep, rich, luxurious aromas that have a WOW factor!

A candle shouldn't just smell nice... it should give a room character, reflect the style of the decor and the mood of the people. 

Some scents have been chosen for a purpose, like Gingerbread to quickly fill a kitchen with a sweet 'just baked cookies' aroma to dispel any cooking smells, or Jasmine as a way to fill a bathroom quickly with a strong fresh scent. Others are more delicate and require a longer burn to generate a larger melt pool and allow the high notes, mid and low tones to work their magic. 

Soy wax is much healthier than paraffin wax, and our choice of healthier essential and fragrance oils do not pump out the strong over-powering chemical-like smells of cheaper candles made with more commercially-minded ingredients, so please do burn them correctly and allow full melt pools to develop. For more information on correct candle and wax melt use, please read the information on candle care and melt safety

Below, you can read what scents are in each of our candles so you can choose the mood that suits you.
