good reasons to trust us

why good candles?

we're a family and we really care about this

We don't always look this serious. Three is the magic number and we work as a team, husband, wife and daughter.

We want to make something that lets us have more time together. We want to show our daughter how business can be done well. We want to make her proud.

every single candle does good things

Setting fire to something is extremely extravagant. You're setting fire to money, why not make someone happier by doing this.

Let's do that and make the house smell amazing whilst also knowing that all the money isn't going to some old dude in a suit.

your home deserves to smell good
your home deserves to smell good

We've filled our home with candles over the years, each one bringing back memories.

We're spending a bit more time at home right now so let's make it smell nice. We focus on nostalgia and memory not science and the abstract.

SCHOOL DINNERS

Sweet AF, inspired by those 80's pre-Jamie Oliver school puddings and illegal trips to the sweet shop. Each one sold helps fund food banks around the UK with the Trussell Trust.

TUCK SHOP TIME

forest fire

Burnt wood, green cognac, vetiver and earth make this our most wintery candle. Planting twenty new trees with Ecologi for every single candle bought.

PLANT THEM TREES

fred's garden

Based on Fred's Garden (my great grandad). For everyone sold we donate to the Campaign Against Living Miserably.

READING BOOKS

The perfect hit of a strong coffee, old books and the concrete of the city. For every candle sold we'll donate to help the 7 million people in the UK struggle with reading via The National Literary Trust.

we make good candles

Small batch candles designed and made by hand in the UK using high quality, sustainably sourced soy wax.

We've made these to be safe and free of nasty stuff such as paraffin and carcinogens. We've got kids at home and we don't want them breathing in bad things.

you know the drill, sign up and we'll give you a cheeky discount on your first purchase.

candles don't have to be serious

We make candles, good ones that make a difference. 

We think this can be done with a smile, presented in boxes that feel nice and made in places where people are treated well.

Every single one helps fund projects and charities that make life better for people. Everyone deserves a second chance.

We make a bit of profit on these, hopefully enough for a family holiday once a year.

No BS, no lofty claims of inventing the wheel or god like egos. Just good smells and good times.

good candles = good times
