Captured by Candlelight hits at just the right side of appetising.

Balance and restraint are the key to making any perfume with gourmand elements work. The last thing anyone wants to smell like is a cupcake. Well, maybe some people do. No judgement. (We’re totally judging).

Captured by Candlelight is a perfume inspired by perfumer (and writer) Sarah McCartney’s story of the same name. There’s a scene in the story where a huge, flaming Christmas pudding is being wheeled into a candlelit, oak-panelled dining room. She’s told that part of the story with smells.

We love its considered construction of notes - the gummy, stewed fruits, flaming treacle, oak panels and freshly extinguished candles. You really smell the story when you wear it.

A perfect union of narrative and execution.
