We are fascinated with fragrance and the ability it has to transform your home and your mood

Fragrance is at the heart of everything we do and we love the process of creating fragrances that are elegant, lush, adventurous and a little intriguing, so you can have fun and layer your home, or self, in a fragrance that suits your mood and personal style

You may have heard of terms like ‘triple scented’ but at g&e we like to keep things simple.  Natural soy wax will only hold a maximum fragrance loading of around 10-12% before it starts to effect how the candle will burn, can cause smoking and oil may leach out of the wax.  So we test all of our fragrances thoroughly and then load to that maximum threshold, ensuring you get the best perfumed soy candle

Understanding fragrance & choosing a fragrance you will love

The Fragrance Types / Families

Although your sense of smell is emotional, the fragrances you most enjoy will probably belong to just one or two fragrance types/families

The fragrance table outlines the fragrance families in more detail and our fragrances in those families…

Fragrance Strength

Every fragrance has a different strength and hot throw, some fragrances are naturally lighter and quiet, others are bolder and unmissable.  The size of the candle also plays a role in this – a large candle has more melt surface and will give off a stronger throw than a smaller candle, so it is important to select the right size of candle for the space you will be burning it in.  To help you understand the strength of our fragrances, we have created the below fragrance key and this key is indicated on each of our fragrances

A bold fragrance that will fill the room with its scent throw. It likes to be the life of the party and to charm you - perfect for a medium sized room to a large area, where the fragrance throw will go far
A more robust fragrance that enjoys getting some attention and being at the heart of the party, but doesn’t need the limelight
A little shy, this fragrance doesn’t need to announce their arrival but you will enjoy their understated company - best suited to smaller rooms and spaces
