Designer Candles

To bring our candle story entirely up to date we nowadays have a wide range of designer candles both freestanding and enclosed in jars or bowls of various designs.

Since the early 20th century designers have created imaginative designs mimicking flowers, fruit and other natural items as well as comic characters and familiar objects.
Latest trends include gel candles which enable shells, jewels, in fact almost anything, to be encapsulated within a candle. This means that candles can be created to celebrate any occasion and designs are only limited by the breadth of the designers imagination.

New fragrances and colour combinations, textures and finishes offer a breathtaking array of choice and now you can even have coloured flames, how exciting is that!!!

"Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed with the things that you didn't do, than by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbour, catch the Trade Winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain 1835 - 1910
