  • Jo Malone London Pastel Macaroons Townhouse Candle

    Jo Malone London Pastel Macaroons Townhouse Candle

    Inspired by six classic scents and moments in a British townhouse (such as the iconic Jo Malone London townhouse), this new collection of scented candles include ‘glowing embers’ and ‘green tomato vine’. But for something really indulgent, opt for the Pastel Macaroons fragrance for a sugary warm almond aroma that is (almost) good enough to eat. The stunning new ceramic casing will look beautiful in your home office or on your dressing table, too.


  • LOEWE Scented Candle

    LOEWE Tomato Leaves Candle

    Featuring eleven plant essence-based scents including beetroot, oregano and bright tomato leaves, the Spanish label’s new home fragrance range is as diverse and bountiful as the vegetable gardens that inspired them. Creative Director Jonathan Anderson sought to evoke the smells of his childhood, crafting scents that are ‘part Victorian botanical garden, part apothecary’. All come in delightfully tactile, colourful terracotta pots – based on a 5th century Greek mug – with beautifully illustrated packaging.


  • Saint Fragrance Balearic Isle

    Saint Fragrance Balearic Isle Candle

    Missing your Mediterranean getaway this summer? As the next best thing, fill your home with the scent of this breezy candle, a new release from London-based brand Saint Fragrance. Reminiscent of balmy evenings and beach sunsets, it features warm notes of coconut, Sri Lankan sandalwood and luxurious Indian tuberose. With further offerings like Sunday Papers and Powdery Skies, the Scent Fragrance range aims to evoke comforting memories and soothe the senses. Candles are hand-poured in the UK using locally-sourced vegan ingredients, with a burn time of 50 hours.


  • Evermore Kana candle

    KANA x Evermore Light Candle

    Brand-new from sustainable brand Evermore in collaboration with ceramicist Kana London, this limited edition ceramic outdoor candle offers up to 200-hours of burn time – more than enough to last you through a summer of balmy evenings spent entertaining al fresco. Let notes of bergamot, grapefruit, rosewood and cedar fill your home and garden. The best part? You can put the candle vessel to good use once the wax has run out; Evermore recommends transforming it into a debonair serving dish.


  • Maison La Bougie Rose Des Vents Candle

    Maison La Bougie Rose Des Vents Candle

    With blends of fresh thyme with woody notes of tree moss and pine, this Maison La Bougie candle smells even better than it looks. The ceramic vase will also make a beautiful piece in your home long after the candle flickers out.


  • Roja Neroli de Tunise Candle

    Roja Neroli de Tunise Candle (1kg)

    Nobody does fragrance quite like Roja, and this Neroli de Tunise Candle really is exquisite. The flowers of the bitter orange tree are hand-picked to create the citrus-floral Neroli oil used in the candle, that will add an instant feel of luxury to your home.


  • Baobab Candle

    Baobab Ocean Drive Candle

    These limited edition Baobab candles smell as beautiful as they look. The Ocean Drive Candle has delicious notes of mandarin and cedar, inspired by the multi-hued vibrance and spirit of Miami’s Ocean Drive.

    Handmade in Belgravia, Rachel Vosper’s chic candles (available in a range of sizes from one to five wicks) come in an array of beguiling scents, from Echinacea – a delicately-scented medicinal herb – to Rose & Magnolia. What’s more, the central London studio is open for orders and operating a no-contact refill service, available for non-traditional vessels as well as empty candle votives.


  • Legna Unity Candle

    Legna Unity Candle

    Thought scented candles were just for women? Think again. Legna London launched July 2016, and creates luxury scented candles with men in mind. They are ‘mandles’, if you will. Choose from Strength (foresty), Wisdom (earthy) or Unity (spicy) scents.


  • Petits Rituels Sensual Healing

    Seductive and soothing, this natural aromatherapy candle will instantly surround you with the intoxicating scent of organic Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, Rose and Lavender. The blend is designed to help against nervous tension – and supposedly also works as an aphrodisiac.


  • Cire Trudon Odalisque

    Cire Trudon Odalisque

    Infused with orange blossom, vanilla and zesty citrus, this decadent scented candle evokes the exotic scents of the Ottoman Empire. Quirky enveloping a room, it lifts flagging spirits with thoughts of travel and romance in faraway places.
