Scent Elements candles

Our second olfactory adventure is a celebration of the bare essentials. All four scents are created in a bid to de-mystify the obscure complexities of the most misunderstood of the senses – smell.

We took inspiration from the medieval alchemist and Eastern philosopher’s quest to reduce all matter to four simple elements. Our minimalist attitude has delivered four scents of extreme simplicities and individual characters that reflect their elemental names of Fire, Air, Earth and Water.

Tom Dixon scents are created in Paris. Each note has been hand-picked and expertly combined to create an evocative sensory experience.

Each wax and diffuser scent container is made from glass mouth-blown in Poland. Designed with the intention for a second life – whether this be a plant pot, container, or refilled into a new candle – scent vessels are adaptable and made to last a lifetime.

Our candles are made in the UK from 50% natural ingredients (50% natural soy, 50% paraffin wax) and contain 10% fragrance – a much higher level compared to the standard 1-3%, meaning the scent is stronger and will last longer.



Complex assemblage of cypriol oil, musk and amber to construct the scent of smoky scorched timber and hot dry tarmac.


Mysterious concoction of mint, cedar and guaiac wood creates a mossy freshness.


Subtle combination of watermelon and amber musk results in a cool and sharp maritime freshness.


Astute blending of neroli, pink pepper and orange flower to deliver a light and crisp floral fragrance.
