  • Each soy candle will be produced in small batches with a wooden wick and numbered by edition.  Each will then be hand finished before being sent out to you.
    The fragrance fig and cassis - is a blend of the two holiday cottages I run, one here on the Welsh Borders, Harp Cottage, and the other in Central France, Les Coteaux.
    The name labels are in Welsh ‘ffig du a cassis’ but looks like French at first glance, which I love.  Blackcurrants to make cassis have been grown in this area of the Welsh borders for years and Figs grow in the garden of our home in France.  This makes the scent a very personal to us at Harp Cottage Studios!
    Integrity is at the heart of the Harp Cottage ethos.  To have the black steel containers made by a local family firm founded in 1850s and then hand poured with sustainable soy wax using a wooden wick in a personal fragrance by another local company that works with adults with learning difficulties is central to how we want to create our range of homewares.
