Awards

2016

Wax Lyrical Gift of the Year Home Fragrance Winner 2016

Gift of the Year 2016 - Winner (Fired Earth Decorative Candle Tin Collection)

After many years, we won the coveted Gift of the Year Award in the home fragrance category. In partnership with Fired Earth, with whom we were runner up in 2015, these decorative candle tins inspired by the wallpaper prints of Fired Earth were a hit with the judges and have been with our customers too!

Insider Made in the North West Awards 2016 Winner Green Innovation

Insider Made in the North West Awards 2016 - Winner (Green Innovation)

After narrowly missing out on an award in 2015, we were so proud to win this award, especially after all the effort we and our landlord have put in to make our site at Lindal-in-Furness as green as possible. Add that to the fact that 99% of our waste is diverted from landfill, I'm sure you can see why we came out on top.

2015

Wax Lyrical Gift of the Year 2015 Home Fragrance Highly Commended

Gift of the Year 2015 - Highly Commended (Fired Earth Earl Grey & Vetivert Two Wick Candle)

Our Fired Earth license has proven very popular with judges, trade customers and consumers alike. Two quintessential British brands, ourselves and Fired Earth, have come together to create these tea-inspired fragrances, with the colours deriving from the Fired Earth paint collection.

We're so proud to be based in the North West of England in the beautiful Lake District and these awards showcase the best of the area. There was some stiff competition for these awards and we were pipped to the post, although still immensely proud of ourselves.
