When we found a tatty old sci-fi novel called Hellflower, all about a populace addicted to flowers, we thought “this is totally up our street” and just had to create a candle with the same name. The novel was terrible, honestly, but the name was gold - and it’s this symbiosis of the brilliant and the beastly that forms the core of Hellflower.
Evoking a magnolia bloom burning with brimstone, Hellflower is a post-apocalyptic floral bursting with the sulphuric brilliance of grapefruit, proving that a touch of the dangerous and the deadly is sometimes needed to enhance beauty. And as far as we’re concerned, if the world ends in an explosion of sparkling flowers, we say bring it on.
If the walls in a church could talk, what would they say? Would they speak in smoky whispers of frankincense? What secrets could be found beneath the patina of ages on cold stone floors? Would they reveal hidden truths about ourselves; of our destiny, our origin? Gilt explores these mysteries, bringing together ancient resins, spices and woods, and shrouds them in a veil of gold. A scent that captures the quiet, contemplative nature of rituals seen through smoke, and a touch of guilt. Light the candle. We are ready for your confession.
Cuir Culture is a daring and unashamed celebration of the bold beauty of queerness. You see, queer culture is the culture.
It is rich, irreverent and proud. In that spirit, our Cuir Culture is unashamedly cuir, with the smell of leather at its most raw and carnal, accented by the dusty sweetness of old books and warm spice. It’s like a chilled Sunday afternoon spent leafing through vintage erotica or polishing your harness.
Sure, it’s raunchy, but therein lies the fun! Whatever your pleasure, whether you’re into the spicy top or the powerful bottom, we don’t judge.
Queen Jam is a Finnish conserve made from raspberries and bilberries. It is divinely delicious and it also has a beautiful name so you probably know where this is going: yes, we made a candle that is just as sticky, juicy, tart and fresh as this decadent treat. Our Queen Jam throws in a few roses (because there are few things greater in life than rose petals swirled together with succulent berries) to make things more luscious and just ever so slightly green. The result is the jammiest candle in the world - the queen of all jams, one could say.
Our tribute to the noble botanicals that bring beauty and joy to our homes, without any of the hassle of actually growing anything. With juicy green notes of cactus and tomato leaf, Succulent is verdant and fresh, evoking a glass conservatory overflowing with lush tendrils. Succulent offers an abundance of green, with fruits, flowers and leaves carried upward in a rush of musk, all in one humble little pot. Just don’t water it, because, you know, it’s a candle…
