THE SCENTED CANDLE WORK SHOP
A stylish yet practical guide to creating unique scented candles at home for the modern reader.
In this beautiful book, Paul and Niko of Earl of East London share the secrets behind the gorgeously scented candles they create at their studio. As well as the basic steps to preparing and pouring candles at home, the book includes a fascinating exploration of the art of building scent, so that the reader can create their own signature fragrances.
Paul and Niko are devoted to capturing memories and feelings in scent, and in this book you can learn how to combine different essential oils to trigger different emotions and memories, whether that is the recollection of a childhood holiday conjured up by a hint of mandarin and seaweed, or an imagined walk in your grandparents' garden scented with basil and parsley.
Not only is candle making and scent development a wonderfully relaxing craft, it is also a unique way to create personalised gifts or to create a signature scent for your own home or special event.
