    If we take into consideration I’m on my FOURTH First Light candle, I think it’s fair to say that I’m absolutely in love! From the packaging to the candle itself – which burns perfectly – the whole experience is just so…decadent! And we definitely need more of those moments in life.

    Absolutely love this candle. It smells even when it’s not burning! Burns so evenly with no soot and lasts ages. Gorgeous candle, would recommend

    I was so excited to receive this candle partly because the description of the scent sounded so amazing and partly because I just thought the packaging was so beautiful. And I have to say I was not disappointed! I’ve never smelt a candle like it and I can not get enough of it! I shall be buying another as soon as it runs out!

    Lovely sweet but not sickly scented candle. Burns perfectly and looks so pretty. Am using the outer as a make up brush stand and between this and Waterfall, my home has never smelt so good. I also bought 2 of the gold lids, great idea to keep the candles dust free when not in use and the gold picks up the delicate foil on the pretty labels. Looking forward to trying some of the other scents too. Very good value and pleased to see all ♻️ packaging.

    Absolutely LOVE this candle. The scent is heavenly, a favourite little treat during a hectic wfh day. The candles are such great quality, great cast, burn evenly and with a steady, smokeless flame – much better than a lot of expensive, well known candle brands. The packaging is beautiful, just an all round wonderful treat.

    Was really looking forward to receiving First Light and it did not disappoint. It smells so good, matching its lovely description perfectly, burns evenly, and looks simply beautiful anywhere it’s placed. I mostly light it during yoga in the morning, which creates a lovely atmosphere. Pretty as well as sustainable packaging too. I’ll certainly be purchasing this candle again and am looking forward to trying the other scents too.

    I love everything about First Light! The packaging is perfection, and the colour of the candle is so pretty. The candle burns so well and the scent is heavenly!! The most scrumptious aroma. I can wholeheartedly recommend this candle!

  8. Kelly Brooker (verified owner)

    This is my favourite candle ever! I have bought a lot of luxury candles in the past and none of them burn as well as First Light. The packaging attracted me to your candles and the scent and quality will keep me buying more. Its really hard to find a candle where the scent lasts every single burn. It fills the room and its such a unique smell.

    I have a LOT of nice candles from Jo Malone, Diptyque etc (it’s a bit of a problem) and can honestly say this candle beats them all on several points. My fave being that the scent is really strong (not too strong), and has continued to be that way whereas others seem to fade out. It’s definitely the one I reach for when the dog has attempted his own room deodorising… The wick is very satisfying to light and hasn’t burnt to a stub before the wax runs out. The glass/design is also pretty so it looks good when not lit. There isn’t anything I don’t like about this candle actually, even the price is fair given the quality. Oh and it would make a lovely gift as the tin is gorgeous. Buy one, then buy one for your mum!

  10. Cara (verified owner)

    This candle ticks all the boxes! The attention to detail and personal touch in the packaging is amazing and the design and colours are dreamy😍 I’ve used the pretty tin as a storage container. The scent is scrumptious, and even my husband commented on the smell which he never normally does. The wax burns perfectly with no tunnelling. On top of all this, the candle is coloured with a gorgeous tint of peachy pink, which is quite unusual as far as luxury candles go. My new favourite candle!

  11. Mrs Davies

    I bought First Light and a set of wick trimmers for a friends birthday and I’ve never had such grateful praise for a gift I’ve given before. Not just the actual products I bought for her, but the packaging, the handwritten note, and the extra little touches throughout. She was over the moon…so now I know what all my friends are getting this year for their birthdays!

  12. Jeanett

    I purchased this candle as part of a gift set – so beautifully packaged and loved the individual touches such as the handwritten note. The candle just fantastic – pretty to look at, burns very evenly with no noticeable soot, the scent is very relaxing and calming – just beautiful. Will definitely buy again but also want to try other scents.

    Ok, I have just received my third First Light Candle – need I say more 😊. This was the first candle I purchased when these delights were launched and oh my what an introduction. It is packaged so beautifully and the aroma when you open the box lets you know immediately that this is something special. It has a beautiful floral scent that isn’t sickly at all, it feels like a grown up kind of candle if that makes sense and it burns like a dream – I don’t think I have ever seen a candle burn so evenly. Granted with the gorgeous care card that is included it’s hard not to want to look after it.

  14. Heather Ransom (verified owner)

    I bought this for myself as a little ‘can’t go on holiday’ treat! It is absolutely beautiful, the scent is divine and reaches the whole house. But I absolutely am in love with how it looks, delicate and stylish the colours are gorgeous. Well done Kimberley on a fab product will definitely buy again 💕

  15. Sarah Mckean (verified owner)

    What’s not to love! As a present to me as I was Covid fed up I bought First Light. As soon as it arrived I was in love. He packaging sets the tone for a fab experience. This feel good factor goes on as you first see and then smell the candle. And when you get to light it Boom! you move to cloud nine!

  16. Laura (verified owner)

    Amazing smell, beautiful packaging, very clean even burn. Wonderful all round!

  17. Pauline (verified owner)

    I was so excited to see and tey these candles, and they are amazing. They are beautiful packaged and its all eco friendly. The smell of the candle when you unwrap it is wonderful. When you burn it the smell just seems to travel around your home. You can see the time time, effort and love that has been spent on these candle, packaging and accessories they all complement each other so well.i will definitely be buying more of these beautiful candles and also buying them for presents as they are ideal and anyone would be more than happy to receive one.

the story behind the scent


“I wanted to capture the feeling of waking up before my alarm to watch the sunrise… the house is quiet, the entire day stretched before me.

There is so much promise in the air.

It’s the Universe’s way of reminding us that every day, we can begin again.”



what does it smell like?


A warm, sensual blend combining floral and oriental notes with a woody base.

You’ll be hit with delicate magnolia blossom upon the scent opening, soon to be joined by vanilla as it burns.

 The warmth of sandalwood will linger even after the flame is extinguished.


when do i burn it?


Light it in early mornings before your day begins or during your healing rituals – yoga, meditation, journaling, breathwork.

Or enjoy in evenings once the sun sets as an olfactory signal that time for yourself has begun.
