The long light evenings and summer blooms inspire a seasonal shift in mood and changing your home fragrance or that of the ones you gift can really personalise your home. Summer usually means a shift towards floral and fruits, bold and bright.
We love a candlelit evening, and switching up your seasonal scent can help invigorate those spirits, a good quality diffuser will keep your space full of hassle free fragrance, and a candle will add an extra throw of indulgence and ambience in the evening. Whilst fragrance is totally down to the individual nose, our seasonal recommendations are those that we and our customers love using this time of year and are all British made and hand poured and hand wrapped.
Starting with our bestselling 'Summer' fragrance from our signature Seasons Collection, blended especially for us it is a sophisticated and distinctive perfume with exotic notes of Pink Pepper and Pomegranate, settling on a base of spicy woods to create a sophisticated and timeless perfume for your home. Available as a highly fragranced mineral wax candle with a cotton wick in a classic glass tumbler with a 40hr burntime, and in a home diffuser with special cotton fibre reeds for maximum fragrance distribution (which means you don"t have to turn them as often). Both are made and hand poured here in England, and wrapped in a luxury box finished with a ribbon making them ideal for gifting.
We are proud stockists of Plum & Ashby, who celebrate the English countryside with their natural ingredients and stunning fragrance pairings - NEW in store but already a hit this summer is their 'Neroli & Bergamot' fragrance, a beautiful, evocative floral scent conjuring up a wander through a blooming English garden in high summer: wafts of jasmine, orange blossom and neroli floating through the air. Fresh and light, it is a fragrance that combines neroli, petitgrain and basil oils, layered together to create an exquisite blend of the floral, the citrus and the herbal in a sensual concoction that is the very embodiment of summer. As well as the brown glass apothecary style diffuser and the 60 hour burn soy wax jar candle, this indulgent fragrance can be layered with both a hand & body wash and lotion plus luxury handcream, all made right here in England.
One of our favourite brands with consistently high quality natural waxes and strong fragrances is Cornish based StEval Candles. They have great eco credentials and their seasonal scents are highly anticipated in our stores. Hand made and poured in England, their Summer Rhubarb has proven to be a hit during the hot months, it is bold and zingy and a good alternative to the florals family of summer fragrances. Fruity and sweet, Rhubarb will transport you to days pottering in the garden, surrounded by bright colours and flowers in bloom whilst basking in the glow of the summer sun. Evoke summertime happiness and festival fun with this quintessentially English garden scent. Use separately or layered with both a pillar candle and fragranced tealights to build your fragrance.

CARE: So cosy up and enjoy your home fragrances safely; remember to place your diffusers on a coaster or plate to protect your surfaces from drips and spills - whether it be from draughts, pets and children! Use a plate or stand for candles for added heat protection and never leave a candle unattended or to burn down to its glass base.
