Les Senteurs’ first candle collection is inspired by the history of the Hawksley and Nicholson families, who came together as Michael and Betty Hawksley – the co-founders of Les Senteurs.
The idea for this candle fragrance came from a story told by Betty Hawksley. Michael and Betty were travelling to the South of France on ‘Le Train Bleu’. It would be the first time he would be introduced to Betty’s maternal grandparents, and his first visit in Toulon.
As the train made its way along the coastal track, Michael leaned his body out of the window, inhaled deeply several times and exclaimed ‘Oh Betty, can you smell this?.... this scent, it's just so… inspiring!’
‘On the night train heading south, full of anticipation; the dawn breaks and the sun-warmed scents of the Mediterranean flow through the open window.’
