I’ve made no secret of how much I love using candles and fragrances to create ambience at home. Whether it’s winter hygge comfort or summer freshness, there’s a scented candle for every season. I love the way scents evoke memories, there is very little in this world more memorable than a scent… With this in mind I was delighted to recently discover The Skye Candle Company.
The Skye Candle Company
The Skye Candle Company have the most amazing range of scented candles and diffusers. After finishing a gap year in Canada, founder James Robertson started working for a soap company based in the main village on Skye, Portree. Discovering a flare for mixing scents and having a passion for natural products he started the Isle of Skye Candle Company.
With help from family and friends, James then renovated the bothy based on his uncle’s croft in Braes, and turned it into his candle making workshop.It even had an authentic grass roof and wood burning stove! Since then the company has gone from strength to strength. Demand for Skye Candles is at an all time high, resulting in a new workshop being opened in Broadford, Skye. There are now 5 shops and a thriving online business!
Scents from Skye
I’m a great vanilla fan for autumn and winter. I love the warmth that the scent of vanilla brings to a room! This summer, however, I’ve been tempted by some new fragrances…The Skye Candle Company’s Scottish tumblers first caught my eye. I couldn’t resist the combination of Heather and Wild Berries – currently my favourite scent at home! It’s the mix of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries that give it a distinctly warm feeling.
Next on my summer list is Scottish Bluebell followed by Raspberry and White Ginger for autumn. This rich fragrance marries the delicious scent of Scottish raspberry with the warm spices of white ginger and a touch of cinnamon bark. These scents are then balanced out with a hint of my favourite – sweet vanilla.
There are also some super cute travel containers and Air Freshners too, both of which now enable me to take my favourite scents with me when I travel!
I love the authenticity of The Skye Candle Company as a brand, the gorgeous packaging and simply amazing scent combinations!
