'Their combined passion for fragrance is infectious, and they love teaching.' Telegraph
Not only is candle making and scent development a wonderfully relaxing craft, it is also a unique way to create personalised gifts or to create a signature scent for your own home or special event. Earl of East London
Paul and Niko of Earl of East London share the secrets behind the gorgeously scented candles they create at their studio. As well as the basic steps required to prepare and pour candles at home, the pair include a fascinating exploration of the art of building scent, so you too can create your own signature fragrances.
Paul and Niko are devoted to capturing memories and feelings in scent, and explain how to combine different essential oils to trigger different emotions, whether that may be a recollection childhood holidays conjured up by a hint of mandarin and seaweed, or an imagined walk in your grandparents' garden, scented with basil and parsley.
