When buying online, it can be difficult to purchase home fragrance you’ve never smelt before. Yes, you can read the fragrance description and fragrance composition, but it’s not easy to image how all of the notes combine by simply reading a list of ingredients.

Our Primary Candles are the cornerstone of the MIXMY concept. Let me help you get to know them by transporting you to a location or scenario to help you image each fragrance. Read each description, then close your eyes and imagine the scent.

As there are just five Primary Candles in the MIXMY collection, all of which have been created to combine with each, you’re not bombarded with too much choice so we’ve made the decision process so much easier!

You can find the official Primary Candle fragrance descriptions and fragrance compositions on each of the product pages.


This is a beautifully soft, powdery fragrance that gradually builds in intensity until it becomes an intoxicating floral bloom.
Picture yourself in the height of summer, standing among blooms of fragrant white flowers in a serene cottage garden as a gentle summer haze lingers over the petals.



This is a dry fruity, woody fragrance with hints of citrus. It’s not sweet at all.
Imagine autumn hedgerows laden with blackberries, and the green earthy scent you get from freshly cut hedge trimmings. You also get notes of tangy blackcurrants along with a hint of sharp citrus, and a very subtle nod to rose in the background.



I’m going to use the word ‘sparkling’ to describe this scent.
Image the Mediterranean sun warming the skins of juicy citrus fruits such as ruby pomelo, mandarin and lemon, and the sun glinting off the sea in the distance. Breathe deeply and you get a fir needle and salty freshness coming through.



This is a very seductive, cologne-like fragrance, with a rich blend of sweet spices, warming woods and smoky incense. Mellowed with amber and a hint of creamy vanilla.
For this one, I’m transporting you to Morocco or the Middle East and the heady aromas of a chaotic souk, where shards of sunlight illuminate the mounds of colourful spices and freshly baked goods, all there to entice and immerse the senses.



I’m going to use Alice du Parcq’s (Beauty & Fragrance Journalist) description of this fragrance as she nailed it perfectly! [Alice du Parcq’s Instagram review  MIXMY features at 10.20mins left]
It’s like a leather jacket that your teenage crush puts over your shoulders when you’re watching bonfire night together. It’s got this dark, intriguing appeal to it. Very smouldery, very smoky, yet there’s a beautiful, comforting mellow creaminess to it that wraps you up in a hug.




In honour of National Fragrance Week, let me tell you a little more about MIXMY fragrances - whilst the idea of burning two candles together isn’t exactly rocket science; the art of creating a collection of fragrances that combine with each other to create considered new fragrances isn’t far off!
We spent a year working very closely with world-class Perfumers to create our debut collection of fragrances that each smell incredible on their own, yet combine to create whole new fragrance combinations.
We then spent another year conducting countless burn trials to determine the perfect wick and ideal fragrance concentration for each candle. Due to the complexity of each candle formulation needing to combine beautifully alongside each other - without overpowering or underperforming alongside other fragrances - every candle has been meticulously formulated to guarantee the very best quality diffusion, ensuring a seamless synergy of scents that work beautifully together whatever the combination.
Spring has sprung! I spent the weekend power-washing the paving slabs. An awful job, but oh so satisfying! Inch by inch, slowly removing the green slime which had accumulated over the Winter to reveal a fresh, new garden.
To me, Spring is all about reinvigoration, a renewed energy, anticipation of the warmer and longer days ahead, the planning of garden soirees with friends (in the hope it doesn’t rain!); and with that comes the desire for a change in home fragrance to reflect the change in season.
The beauty of MIXMY Scented Candles is that they can be combined to create new fragrance combinations, or Scent Destinations™. No need to go out and buy new scented candles. Just combine different Primary Candles to create whole new fragrances. No more wasted, half burn candles because they no longer suit the season or your mood!
