There is nothing quite like the experience of moving house. Despite the never-ending piles of boxes, the coordination of dates and the infamous pre-moving clear-out, putting the keys in the door for the first time and making your new house feel like a home is a feeling like none other!

Blended with Thyme, Juniper and Ylang-Ylang, our ceramic candle burns gently and evenly for those dinner party evenings whilst the Home Diffuser set can decorate a corner of the living space to scent a constant but subtle inviting atmosphere across the whole home.
