    New Autumn Themed Handmade Candles

    • Calan Gaeaf [calan gay av] – halloween

      Our Halloween candles are all treats and no tricks! A classic fragrance perfect for Halloween and Autumn. Infused with a sweet and delicious spiced pumpkin fragrance with warming notes of Cinnamon and Clove. Finished with a wood wick, creating a soft crackling ambience when it burns, reminiscent of a log fire.

    • Tân Gwyllt - [taan gwillt] - bonfire fireworks

      Autumn is a beautiful season, leaves turning to lovely orange and russet the lovely crisp days of clear blue skies with just a touch of chill in the air.  Tân Gwyllt is a rich fragrance evoking memories of crackling fires, with base notes of cedar and guaiac wood. Cosy, warming aromas of autumn, just the right fragrance for curling up with a good book, relax and let the world go by! The added sense of a wood wick, creating a soft crackling ambience when it burns, reminiscent of a log fire.

    • Cynhaeaf  [kin hay av] harvest 

      Memories of dessert on bonfire night and toffee apples. A warming, sweet but not sickly fragrance of buttery treacle toffee, with hints of vanilla and soft balsamic spices. Fill your home with the cosy aromas of autumn! Finished with a wood wick, creating a soft crackling ambience when it burns, reminiscent of a log fire.

    Memories of dessert on bonfire night and toffee apples. Our Halloween candles are all treats and no tricks! A classic fragrance perfect for Halloween and Autumn.

    Handmade Candles

    Our handmade candles are poured at the FelinFach Chandlery Studio in Pembrokeshire. They are made in small batches using the finest quality 100% natural soy wax, infused with a blend of premium high-grade fragrance & essential oil recipes. Fragrance memory is quite a strong and evocative sense and we have named our handmade candles for a feeling or place that we think the fragrance captures. 

    Our candles are hand poured into a heavy bottomed, straight sided matt Grey or matt White glass container topped with an oak lid that can also be used as a coaster for your candle when burning. We use FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood wicks as they are sustainable and have a lovely soft crackling sound when burning. Each handmade candle is packaged in a sturdy gift box that can be reused for bits and bobs or be a ready packaged gift for a friend or loved one!  We do not use dyes, parabens or additives and our products are rated vegan.

    Soy Wax Candles

    All our Handmade Candles, Wax Melts and Tealights are made from natural Soy Wax or a Soy and Coconut wax blend – they do not contain any paraffin waxes. Pure soy candle wax is 100% plant based, sustainable, biodegradable and an eco-friendly product. We believe that it provides you with the longest, safest, cleanest burn and also has excellent fragrance-holding qualities. It is vegan friendly and is not tested on animals.
