What goes into a luxury scented candle

For us, making the perfect luxury scented candle is a fine art. We approach candle making much like an artist creating beautiful sculpture. Every element is carefully crafted over many months until we have the perfect luxury-scented candle.

It all starts with the scent. For us, this is at the heart of everything we do. Scent inspires us, lifts us and it is a gift we have the opportunity to share with you. Each and every luxury fragrance takes around a year to develop. Working with our master noses we use the finest essential oils and rarefied fine fragrances from around the world. Each scent story we tell is very British in identity but the inspiration can come from around the globe.

Next we work on the perfect wax blend. We use a mixture of different waxes from mineral to beeswax to create the optimum scent experience. We regularly test our candles to make sure they are burning slowly and evenly at all times. We pride ourselves on having beautiful burning luxury scented candles.

The process is finely finished off by creating the perfect candle holder. Our iconic smart navy blue glass has been seen in the most prestigious hotels and departments stores all across the world. Our British hand finished glass is carefully and lovingly hand inspected to make sure a Charles Farris luxury scented candle always has pride of place in your home.



Charles Farris is one of Britain’s oldest candlemakers with firm roots in Victorian London, and proud Royal Warrant holders. Our range of luxury scented candles are made using time-worn, traditional crafting techniques that date back to 1845.
