I've been making candles for 10 years now. What started as a hobby to create handmade gifts for friends & family has developed across two businesses and into one of our best selling ranges at Lomas & Lomas.
At the beginning I made candles in vintage teacups and glassware for my previous business, For The Love Of Vintage- a vintage events company. I would make these for bridal party gifts and sell these at vintage fairs across Manchester & Cheshire. It was a real kitchen table business, the dining room table and every surface in the kitchen used
to be covered in candles waiting to set.
I find candle making such a soothing activity and I've spent a decade developing my skills and
really honing fragrance combinations.
For The Love Of Vintage - my days creating tea parties and handmade vintage china candles
When we launched Lomas & Lomas, I knew I wanted to keep candle making as an element of the new business. Having a home fragrance range seemed to be a perfect fit for our new interiors brand.
We began with 5 fragrances and moved from vintage china to whisky style glasses and topped them with silver dust covers.
Over the last 4 years our fragrances have developed quite a bit from where we started and we've introduced a line of handmade room diffusers. With last years rebrand and our recent store expansion in March we knew now was the right time to grow our home fragrance range again.
We have now doubled the number of scents and created two distinct collections,
which we think has a fragrance for every home - available as a candle and room diffuser.
The Black collection is all about woody, aromatic, oriental, sensual fragrances which create a calming atmosphere,
to cocoon your senses and help you to relax and unwind.
Rosewood & Moss
Cedarwood & Geranium
Blackberry & Bay
Amber & Black Lily

The White collection, with its fresh, fruity & floral scents, awakens your senses and lifts your mood.
Ideal for filling your home with fresh fragrances.

Spiced Orange (Christmas fragrance)
The diffuser packing has had a little revamp too, now in matt glass bottles with a wooden cap.
Our diffusers use an eco-friendly base solution mixed with essential & fragrance oils. They come with black fibre
reeds which are extremely efficient as dispersing the fragrance into the air and don't clog as
much as traditional reeds or need to be turned.
Bottles are also supplied with a plastic travel plug and come gift box tube.
