The alchemy of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter create rich narratives and a cinematic, ever-changing backdrop to the days of our lives. Seasons and scents are poetically intertwined. From Bergamot which grows in Italy in the Spring, to Neroli, which grows in India  in the Summer, each essential oil and ingredient we’ve used to make our products relies on nature’s rhythm. We created Four Scents Botanical, a luxury natural product brand to welcome and celebrate each season. Now you can fill your home with carefully sourced, natural fragrances to capture the mood, all year round.

We hope that our specially formulated fragrances enhance the season’s uniquely magical moods at home with your nearest and dearest.

How our scents are blended

We have sourced many essential oils to create our four core scents. Each captures the unique qualities of one of the four seasons, creating a trail of essential oils and scents around the world. We then brought the oils back to the UK to be carefully blended into our products, with our candles & diffusers hand-poured and slowly cured.

In each of our Four Scents Botanical scents you will notice fragrances to arrest your senses:

The core of the fragrance. You will recognise these after the top notes start to fade.

Base notes

The scents that become noticeable after your candle has been alight for a little time. Mixed with the heart notes, they deepen the fragrance and will be the longest lasting aroma.
