Located on the Sussex coast, we are two friends and former magazine journalists whose love of sumptuously-scented candles led us to launch our own vegan-friendly range in November 2016.
Fast forward 4 years and we’re proud that our lushly-fragranced candles - along with diffusers and bath & body staples - have gained a firm and loyal following. Featured in The Guardian and Elle Decoration, SevenSeventeen candles have been complemented for their 'great throw and lovely scents' by Guardian beauty columnist Sali Hughes and for being 'simple in design, beautiful in quality' by beauty blogger Caroline Hirons.
To us, there really is nothing quite like the ritual of lighting a luxurious candle at the end of a long day. Back when we were setting up our brand, that strike of the match signified clocking off from the chaos once our small children were snuggled up in bed - which on a good day fell somewhere around Seven Seventeen, hence our name!
We’re proud that our hand-poured candles use plant-based soy wax that burns cleanly along with natural cotton wicks and a mix of high quality essential and fragrance oils. Each candle also has an incredible burn time of up to 70-hours for a triple wick size.
Something that gives us most pleasure about our business is that SevenSeventeen is committed to donating 10% of profits to mental health charities through product sales. Thanks to all your amazing orders, we're thrilled to have donated over £43,000 to Pandas Foundation, Sane, Calm and YoungMinds to date.
We hope you enjoy relaxing with the collection as much as we do.
