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 original idea was based around Michael’s parents' family home in Loos, Kent. They, like many families in the area, had a small garden cherry orchard. Come harvest time, all would gather together to help bring in the cherry crop.
'The golden afternoon fades in the ancient orchard; the harvest is long completed. Beneath the boughs, plucked of their wares, only the discarded pips remain. Gathered like magic stones and counted by the light of the bonfire, they foretell what future might come…’
