It all started around thirty years ago when we decided we wanted to make scented candles in containers...something which didn't exist (as we know them today) in this country back then. Our vision has always been that we didn't just want to make any old candle...we wanted to make the best and if we couldn't make the best then we wouldn't make them at all. When it came to choosing a container we used a laboratory to test different materials for us like glass and various metals to see which would provide the best fragrance throw. The material which came out on top was a tin as it holds heat for the longest period which also helps to throw the fragrance. So we then had to find a tin manufacturer who could make small tins for us as nothing like this had previously been used for candles in the UK. Several months later we received our first shipment of 5,000 little tins and lids and made the first scented candles in tins (commercially available as we know them today). Potters Crouch is genuinely different we are first and foremost perfumers of the highest quality who are so disappointed by the performance of perfumes being used in air care products today that we decided the consumer deserved better and that we would make our own. 93% of purchasers of a Potters Crouch fragranced product are so delighted with the perfume that they return to the brand consistently.
