Fresh, sweet, calming; three words to describe the Fresh Linen and Lemon Blossom, just one of the scents being produced by a new artisan candle business called Lily’s Bespoke Candles, founded by two local ladies from Chester and Liverpool. The business concept is based on their love of candles and bespoke products, so why not combine the two. Tired of seeing the same scents every time they went shopping, they set up their own business, but instead of following the mass market, they identified a gap, letting the customer personalise their purchase, which undoubtably will be the key to their success and establishing the brand in such a competitive market. The idea of producing authentic and unique products – bespoke products, where the client makes the decisions is a real plus; we’re all unique, including our sense of smell, so why not produce products that identify with that uniqueness. This underlying concept works simply by allowing customer to make three choices, the scent, the strength and the size of the candle. With twelve scents to choose from, the strength ranging from subtle to standard to strong and the size, a choice from 20cl or 30cl product, it’s up to you. This is a simple but brilliant concept, giving people the opportunity to customise and construct around the person they’re buying for. Truly a unique and special gift.
The centre of the business is selecting the best scents, which thought has gone into, too. Each scent is built from using fragrance and essential oils. If you don’t want to customise, you can buy off the shelf from four great scent combinations, every one of the scents is gorgeous.
English Rose & Champagne
Fresh Linen & Lemon Blossom
Sweet Caramel & Honey
Vanilla & Cocoa Butter
It doesn’t matter that the number of scents is limited, it’s knowing that they’re produced individually as and when you order, and that care and attention to detail has gone into the making and pouring of the product. Made from soy wax, means that you’re not going to get those nasty chemicals in the product, it’s 100% natural, with clean burning, no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants, so if you suffer from allergies, you too can enjoy Lily Bespoke Candles, unlike paraffin wax, which the mass-produced market uses to produce their candles. The choice of quality and natural ingredients also means that the product can be enjoyed between 30- 50% longer than a paraffin-based candle. So, what’s not to like??
The products are packaged beautifully, from the box, the labelling, to the added detail of the ribbon and the candles themselves, it was a real treat to open the package and find this beautifully presented box, the branding on the candles brings the product together and makes them look sophisticated, whatever room or wherever you put them. The design is simple and elegant, making Lily’s Bespoke Candles a treat for you or as a gift for somebody else.
Candles are not your thing, their range extends to reed diffusers, and can be bought in all the scents available for the candles.
Lily’s Bespoke Candles are great products and I’ll be recommending them to friends and family and if somebody bought me a Lily’s Bespoke Candle, I’d be absolutely delighted.
