Sweet Elixir, The Scent Of The Countryside

sweet elixir scented candle

Sweet Elixir is the scent of a quintessential English summer, a rich blend of honey, sparkling citrus, and sweet mimosa. While most might prefer not to burn candles during the hottest part of summer, Sweet Elixir thrives in the seasonal heat – in fact, hot weather can amplify the scent of your candle, and help diffuse the scent more effectively into the air. 

Few of our scents are as versatile as Sweet Elixir. Sweet Elixir can be perfect as a bedroom scent, in your bathroom, or even in the kitchen. It’s one of the safest choices for gifting as well, especially for a summer wedding or birthday. Sweet Elixir evokes the scent of the meadows and ripening fruits of an English orchard. It’s the perfect fragrance to invite a little bit of the summer countryside to your home. 

This summers in England may often be brief, but Sweet Elixir will feel just as right as autumn comes. Its subtle citrus undertones are refreshing as the seasons turn, a lingering impression of the preceding sunny months. A luxury scented candle or one of our reed diffusers will prove to be a perfect addition to your decor, and carry you through the sunny months and into the autumn.
