Awaken your senses

Before diving into creating your scent-scape, you have to decide on which scented candle will be your base, and where it will be placed. Fresh, clean notes are great for hallways, kitchens, and bathrooms, whilst warmer notes are perfect for bedrooms and living space. Our candles are carefully curated to provide a clean, even burn for a long-lasting and enchanting fragrance experience. Made from a natural rapeseed blend, they offer a sustainable and eco-friendly option for those who appreciate both aesthetics and the environment.

Our candles come in three captivating scents:

Embers: Embrace the warmth of this scent as it fills your home with a cosy, fireside ambiance. Perfect for those crisp autumn evenings when you want to curl up with a good book or enjoy a movie night with loved ones.

Wild Gorse: The refreshing serenity of Wild Gorse brings a touch of the outdoors inside. This scent is like a breath of fresh air, invigorating your space with a sense of calm and tranquillity.

Moss: Allow your home to be surrounded in soothing embrace of a woody forest. Moss transports you to the heart of nature, making it an ideal choice for those who long for enjoying the natural world even when kept indoors on damp days.

Your chosen candle that will be the centrepiece of your scent-scape. Alone, your candle will create a haven of beautiful scents, but there are easy ways to enhance your atmosphere to get the most out of each candle.

A fresh organised home, paired with a lit candle, is the perfect recipe for a harmonious home. 

Location, location

Candle placement is the first, and arguably the most important, step. Begin by placing your beautiful candle in a central location - the statement ceramic pot and unforgettable scent will become the focal point of your scent-scape. Consider positioning it on a coffee table, dining table, or mantelpiece where it can be admired and enjoyed by all. It is best to keep your candles away from doors or windows that will be opening frequently and creating a breeze, as this will affect the burn of the candle.

Helpful Houseplants

Houseplants are a vital part of your autumnal scent-scape. Choose a selection of greenery that complements the scents of your candles. For instance, the Embers candle pairs perfectly with deep green, robust plants like snake plants and rubber trees. Wild Gorse can be enhanced with the delicate beauty of lavender or rosemary, and Moss finds harmony with ferns and mossy textures. Place your houseplants strategically around the room to create a soothing, natural atmosphere. Their presence will not only enhance the overall fragrance but also improve air quality.

Nature's Treasures

Foraged goods are an essential element in achieving an authentic scent-scape. Grab your coat, head outdoors and gather some fallen leaves, pinecones, or twigs. These treasures from the natural world can be used to decorate your space and complement the candles.

From festive pinecones in the Winter, to thriving houseplants in the sunnier months, the Mylor Bowl is the perfect year round homeware accessory. 

Display the foraged goods in vases, on your dining table, or as part of a seasonal centrepiece. The earthy scents of these elements will further enrich the ambiance and bring a touch of the outdoors into your home.

Light and enjoy

Once you've positioned your statement candle, arranged your houseplants, and adorned your space with foraged goods, it's time to light the candles and bask in the atmosphere you've created. The flickering flames and fragrant embrace of the candles, combined with the greenery and foraged treasures, will transform your home into an autumnal oasis that will warmly welcome your in after a long day.
