Marmalade of London is a British candle brand that creates a little indulgent luxury for every home, with every candle poured! They have a passion for fragrance and design which can be seen in their stylish and contemporary packaging. Fragrance is very personal and different scents can remind us of a person, a place or a moment in time. That’s why Marmalade has created  fragrances to suit all different tastes. All of the products are lovingly made in Britain. The candles are 100% soy wax with cotton wicks and essential oils. Marmalade’s bath and body products contain lovely natural ingredients including shea butter, vitamin E and aloe vera. The nearest they get to animal testing is by bringing the family black labrador, Plum, to work and allowing her to sniff the occasional candle or reed diffuser. She seems to approve!
