Botanica Fine Fragrance Candle


Inspired by an English Garden, Botanica is years of memories, experiences, and joy captured in scent. A walk through a vegetable garden, the perfume of a rose being carried by a breeze, the earthiness of the produce being warmed by the sun. Botanica will transport you to the finest Cotswold landscape to experience the pleasure of a botanical garden in bloom. 

We worked with a Cotswold-based perfumer to capture this scent in candle form so that you too can experience these moments for yourselves, wherever you happen to be in the world.

The Botanica scent is a blend of Rose, Marjoram, Pimento, Violet, Patchouli, Musk and Ambergris.

Made in the United Kingdom with natural wax. 40 burn hours.

Exceptionally good candle, as good if not better than Dyptique.

Beautifully fragranced candle - even before it was lit the perfume was wonderful. The box is a good card quality with exquisite botanical illustrations and a lovely quote from Audrey Hepburn inside the lid (a nice surprise and a lovely touch!). The candle jar is ceramic and coloured inside - really well thought out. The lit candle smells absolutely divine - it reminds me of gardens from spring and summer into early autumn ...very British countryside. I love this candle and will be ordering more, for myself, and as gifts at Christmas.
I have bought Dyptique candles for years but I actually think I prefer this one over my long time favourites! Highly recommended and I look forward to seeing the range expand.

Bliss scent!

I was gifted this candle by my son(big fan of Nicholas and his decorating). I waited a bit to burn the candle because it wasn’t quite spring. Once I did light the candle I was thrilled by its scent! Not even lit, it scents the room. Nicholas, you have created the scent of pure bliss!


The other reviews have said it all. It has great ‘throw’ and fills a room…and beyond. Even though my candle is now spent, I’ve placed the pretty container on the windowsill of a southern facing window in my kitchen. The unique fragrance is still there and catches me unawares (in a good way) when I walk into the kitchen, especially on a warm day. Thank you Nicolas, I’m persuaded to buy another candle and try the reed diffuser.

Aromas of sweet nectar and mystical countryside bliss

Do it… just buy it now. Nothing quite compares to the fragrant smell of Nicolas Fairford in my very own home, I’ve had it on the burn every woken hour since buying. I’ve been an avid Instagram follower for some time now, so to have his presence under my roof is really something special.

Candle Care

Avoid Tunneling

To ensure that your candle doesn’t tunnel, the first time you light it be prepared to let it burn until the entire top layer of wax has melted across. Each time you burn the candle after this, it will burn evenly. This is also known as candle memory. If you extinguish the flame before the top layer has melted fully across, it will burn this way each time and the unmelted wax around the edges will create a tunnel, which is essentially wasted fragrance.

Always trim the wick

To prevent your candle from smoking, always trim the wick before each use. This will also keep your candle clean and free of residue.

Dip to extinguish

It always best to extinguish the flame by dipping the wick into the melted wax. When you blow out a candle, the wick continues to burn for a short while, causing it to smoke. Instead dip the wick into the wax to extinguish, and then pull back out so that you can light it next time. I usually do this with the end of a used matchstick, but you could use tweezers, or a blunt knife.
