Birkenhead based luxury candle designers Owen Drew have launched a limited-edition candle to mark one hundred years since the end of World War One.
The ‘Centenary’ candle which has been designed as a tribute to all the fallen, is also set to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.
Founder Drew Cockton explained, ‘We really felt that we wanted to mark the anniversary by creating a fragrance that pay homage to all the brave men and women who have fought in any kind of conflict over the past one hundred years. We made just one hundred of the special candles and will be donating £5 from every sale to the Royal British Legion as a mark of our respect for the amazing work they do.’
The ‘Centenary’ candle has been developed using top notes of Poppy, with tones of rich rose oils and patchouli which release a beautiful calming aroma.
The team have also decked out their Pacific Road boutique with over 2500 poppies cascading out over their shop front.
‘People often light candles to remember loved ones so it seemed only natural for us to mark this significant event,’ commented Drew. ‘We really hope our customers get behind the initiative and embrace the sentiment by helping us raise as much as possible for the Royal British Legion.’
