The first flame of Amor et Psyché took light in Paris while exploring my other passions perfumery and books. Here I found and fell in love within a romantic and enlightened world. From the streets of St. Germain to the sanctuary of the Shakespeare and Company bookshop, I felt my ideas coming together. The beauty of a candle is within its scent and its science, I travelled to Grasse and Paris to learn all I could about traditional and modern perfumery.
From hot distillation to enfleurage. I discovered that as well as a passion for making candles I had a love for making scents. Scents inspired by those very streets I had just travelled. I returned to London determined to create candles with scents that evoked either powerful memories or were present when new memories were being created. There is a sculpture in The Louvre depicting the moment Psyché is awoken with a kiss by Cupid. The moment you light an Amor er Psyché candle its flame kisses the room and awakens it from its sleep.
