I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED IN THE POWER OF FRAGRANCE TO EVOKE MEMORIES AND CREATE EXPERIENCES.
The delicate scent of Lily of the Valley reminds me of my grandmother. A sudden waft of bluebells transports me back to Yorkshire and the wild flowers that carpeted the earth around my childhood home each spring. Fragrance can carry us to other places and times, or remind us of people dear to us.
There’s a distinct sense of comfort and warmth that a good-quality scented candle brings. As a wife and mother of three, now living in the Cotswolds, I wanted to create new memories for my own family. Inspired by my own recollections and the natural English countryside I live in, I started to hand pour my own candles for family and friends. In my little workshop at the end of my garden, surrounded by Cotswold countryside, I patiently tested scents, waxes and wicks for over a year and created a fragrance library. I gradually honed a range of candles that are wonderfully nostalgic with a timeless English feel; the Cotswold Candle Company was born. Happy shopping! Polly x
