We’re home to a state-of-the-art laboratory

We design and test all of our home fragrances in our on-site lab, which sits on the doorstep to the English Lake District. Through our products we aim to infuse a glimpse of this inspiration into each of your homes.

We’re constantly evolving to achieve the highest quality fragrances. Most recently we introduced a new fragrance blend for all of our reed diffusers which used a more natural formula to guarantee the fragrance will last even longer in your home.

What does 100% fragranced really mean?

If you’ve heard from us before you’ll know we’re often waxing lyrical about being 100% fragranced, but you may not be sure what we mean by this.

In some cases, fragrance isn’t added to all of the wax in a scented candle and instead fragranced wax may only be added at the end of the process, for example – but this isn’t the Wax Lyrical way!

Fragrance runs through every drop of wax in our scented candles, so that you can enjoy your favourite aromas until the very last flicker.

With inspiration comes innovation

We’ve been here since the 80s, evolving to interior designs, having a keen eye (and nose!) for fragrance trends, and continuously looking ahead to the future of home fragrance. We soak up inspiration from our surroundings and have assembled a team of some of the best in the industry – did you know we were the first to manufacture reed diffusers in the UK?

We’re committed to delivering high-quality, British-made products from this great place, creating fragrances which will set the scene for moments to wax lyrical about.
