Find your homes signature sent that suits your individual style


We sat down with self-taught candle maker Cecil from Cameron Collective to learn about his new range of handmade, hand poured candles. We never stop to think how these tiny luxury treasures are made. Find your signature scent and match it to your personal style. 
Hand-poured candle
How do you choose the scents for your candle range? 
I blend essential oils, botanical oils and fragrance oils. You make a small candle of each scent individually and then I choose which ones will suit each other. For blossoms and blooms I will sample a lavender, geranium and violets and all florals and start blending to get the perfect scent. 
Are there any scents that don’t make the cut? 
Yes, plenty. Fragrances all react differently, some of them don’t give off a smell when added to the wax or the scent doesn’t come through when the candles burn. 
How does the process work?
I buy the wax in bulk and it comes in small pellets that you melt, we use paraffin wax. You’ll add the oils and colouring to the wax, we don’t use any colourants though. Only the orange blossom has a colour to it and its purely because of the essential oil. The wax is then hand poured into the jars individually. Our wicks are cotton wicks and the wicks often differ according to the size and diameter of the jar. 
What is hand-poured and how is it different to mass produced candles? 
Hand-poured candles are literally poured by hand individually in each jar so there is more of a human element to it because of all the care that goes into the making of each candle. It needs to be done perfectly because it’s a liquid that solidifies so you don’t want to pour too little or too much and always keep it level. The solidifying process usually happens overnight. 
What is your personal favourite candle scent? 
Leather and Amber is my personal favourite. It’s got a smoky, masculine smell to it and its nice for a bigger area as the strong scent carries through. 
Whats the most popular candle scent in the range?
Orange blossom is always a hit but lemongrass is becoming increasingly popular too. 
We absolutely loved learning more about the inner makings of the incredible hand
-crafted treasure that the candle is.
