Come with me / And you’ll be / In a world of pure imagination” – Gene Wilder, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
No matter where we roam searching for inspiration for our scents, we can’t deny that sometimes there’s no place like home. That’s why we stepped back in time to our childhood in Yorkshire to combine the excitement of a visit to the sweet shop with the comfort and wonder of a summer’s day in the garden at home.
This candle combines the sweetness of Yorkshire rhubarb crumble with top notes of elderflower from that family walk in the countryside on a hot English summer’s day.
Pocket money in hand, we’ve bought a bag of rhubarb and custard sweets, jumped on our bikes and headed back home to a garden blooming with the fruits of summer. Dad’s fired up the barbecue, Mum’s gossiping with a G&T in her hand, the kids are playing with the hosepipe and the warm English sun beats down to a soundtrack of laughter, squeals and Spandau Ballet. Bliss!
