For the longest time within the fragrance industry, ‘oriental’ has been the term used to describe scents from the East. This term is so incredibly vague; it’s simply a generic catchall that’s not enough to categorise and represent the unique fragrance notes in every beautiful culture.
We’re on a mission to establish a presence for the scents and aromas that we are used to smelling within our Asian households; that are also currently under-represented within the candle industry.
Based in Manchester, we wanted to operate in a way that minimises our impact on the environment while providing highly scented, premium quality wax products and gifts.
When it comes to raw materials, we are conscious of the serious health and environmental impact that traditional candles made out of paraffin wax have; so we’ve vowed to only work with an alternative wax that’s as sustainable as possible while meeting our candle quality requirements.
The coconut wax formulation that we use contains a percentage of soy (hydrogenated form of soybean oil) which helps with the decreased amount of black soot, contributing to a clean burn. We can assure you that coconut wax isn’t as soft and mushy as the coconut oil that you might use to cook or clean your skin with, instead, it produces a creamy off-white candle that works brilliantly with our fragrances.
For our wicks, we selected natural wooden wicks to create the most cosy, ASMR-worthy gentle crackle whilst you enjoy your candles. The wooden wicks are grown from sappy fruit trees and are naturally processed and sourced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified mills in the USA. Pat. lumetique.com/patents.
We hope you love our candles as much as we loved crafting them for you!
