Robbie Honey is the UK's leading florist and floral artist, whose impressive list of clients include Hermes and Dior. Having always been interested in the visual and olfactory qualities of flowers, these candles capture the nuanced fragrance of the exotic blooms that have long beguiled him. Each candle comes in a velvety-textured coated glass, its shade of grey reflecting the strength of the scent.
With a rare combination of expertise in botany, floristry and the visual arts, Robbie now lectures around the world on floristry. Originally from Zimbabwe, Robbie studied horticulture and worked in the floriculture trade in Holland and Kenya, studied interior design and photography at art school in Cape Town, before moving to London to train with floral designer Ming Veevers Carter.
Charming, urbane and inspirational Robbie chooses a blend of natural and mineral wax for his first quartet of unforgettable candles. Choose from the noble antique loveliness of jasmine; the shy perfection of lily of the valley; the nocturnal eroticism of tuberose; and the spicy sensuality of lily. Cared for with the wick trimmed after each use, a luxurious Honey candle will burn for 60 hours in its textured grey glass.
