Yvonne Ellen for you, for right now


The new Yvonne Ellen collection by Wax Lyrical is all of us.  We’ve all been there.  It started when Yvonne couldn’t find the right wedding present for her best friend. That “special something” both beautiful and unique. So, she up-cycled a vintage tea set and personalised it with her beautiful illustrations, to create a much loved gift.  Sounds so simple but her talented artistry and an eye for flair and charm got lots of attention.  Her friends waxed lyrical (as they say) about the beautiful gift and she decided to start her own business. The rest as they say, is history. 

Founder, creator and illustrator, the award-winning British designer Yvonne Ellen has always had a strong passion for beautiful vintage fine bone china and alongside a love of quirky, decorative illustration she has created one of a kind ranges. Established as a highly covetable brand, Yvonne Ellen continually gathers press acclaim in the UK and internationally but it is still an independently owned and family run business.  As a mother of two young children, passionate about her friends, family and all that is important in life, Yvonne Ellen is a busy lady, but that just makes her even more perfectly positioned to know what our lives and homes need.  Originality, charm, intrigue, things to cherish which are totally on trend but with a vintage vibe.

The Yvonne Ellen designs and Wax Lyrical fragrances have created exactly that.  Together, simple pleasures are made extra special.  The success of the first Yvonne Ellen home fragrance collection by Wax Lyrical in 2018, created much excited anticipation for this new premium collection. 

The unique designs have been inspired by vintage hat boxes and playful watercolour animals from Yvonne’s image library.  They have been paired with similarly playful fragrances: Purrfect Day (sensual with saffron, oudh, rock rose, davana and rich jasmine, white sandal, amber and irresistible femininity);  Rock Your Spots Off (cool with fresh white cotton, citrus blend of bergamot, lemon and lime, plus muguet cedarwood, musk, patchouli and vanilla);  and Party Animal (a rich berry scent with cranberry, mulberry, patchouli, rosemary, Oakwood and clove).

Yvonne Ellen fragranced candles and diffusers

The new Yvonne Ellen collection makes that desirable Instagram look, a reality for your home.  Attention to detail in the fully decorated ceramics extends to the hat box style packaging, also making them a luxurious and desirable gift.

Head of Product at Wax Lyrical, Rachel Homes says it’s important that the fragrance has a connection with the design.  “It’s a scientific fact that smell has a stronger link to emotion than any of the other human senses so we created fragrance combinations which mirror the sensual, fun and excitement elements of the Yvonne Ellen illustrations.”

“We also love the idea of this beautiful ceramic container which started as a 100% fragranced candle, made with our special blend of waxes, having a second life as a stylish trinket box.  The fragranced reed diffuser adorns the home so well, the refill also becomes a must have.  Our chunky natural fibre reeds draw on the new natural blend for diffusers, which is British made, lasts longer than alcohol, is non-toxic and a renewable resource making it more environmentally friendly.”

In a nutshell – or in a hat box – the Yvonne Ellen new premium collection looks beautiful, smells amazing, can be re-used and is naturally the perfect present – or treat for yourself. Click here, you will be spoilt for choice.
