Special Thoughts, Memories and Words

Lovely Customer letters

Hi Janis, I received my order yesterday, and I wanted to write and thank you for creating such a lovely product. The candles smell incredible, and even before burning, I can tell these are quality products better than many candles I’ve tried.
Every year I go to the Scottish Highlands with two of my closest friends, we hike, bike, kayak, eat and drink and just absorb the uniqueness of this region. This year we were all booked to spend quality time on Harris and Lewis, of course, Covid put paid to that. We missed it so much, so I thought I’d bring a little piece of Scotland to them via your candles. I particularly liked the fact you included little cards (one for each candle) explaining the scents and the inspiration behind them, as I could include these in my gifts for my friends.
I was pleased to see that you use compostable air packs, and cardboard boxes reducing plastic use. I wonder if you have thought about using the eco fill packing chips (they dissolve in water) rather than bubble wrap to eliminate nearly all plastic in the delivery process? The matches you included were a lovely touch too.
I will definitely be ordering from you in the future and will recommend you to my friends.
Have a lovely Christmas and New Year,

Wanted to say we love the ‘whisky galore’ candle I bought for the Christmas table. My wife loves candles and this one hit the spot.
Used to stay in the Golf View Hotel when BA crew used to night-stop. Fond memories. My father was born in Insch, so I have a connection.
BRgds – Chris.

Happy New Year Janis.
I would just like to say how much we enjoyed the Christmas Flame Candle – it seemed to last for ages! And our daughter and her partner loved the Christmas bauble melts – she put them on her tree first and is now melting them.
I shall definitely be back next December (earlier – if they are available) for some more. They make excellent gifts, and the packaging makes them just that little bit more special. If we lived closer, we’d definitely join you all to create our own but Nottingham us just a little too far away!
A Happy New Year to you all.
Graham and Barbara.
PS. And the other two episodes of Country Christmas was interesting too – I love Christmas.

My Husband is a fragrance fanatic with his own YouTube channel for perfumes, and sometimes we dabble with diffusers and scented candles. When your shipment arrived and we lit Sea Dream, he simply said – that’s the best room fragrance and scented candle I have ever experienced.

Shared Special Memories

I bought one of your lantern candles in July of this year and it is truly stunning, at the time I was holidaying in Nairn with my friend, it should have been a family holiday with my husband and grandchildren, but sadly at the age of 63 he has been diagnosed with alzheimers and has been in hospital since June, I light this candle every night as a reminder of a special man who should have joined me on that holiday, thank you for a beautiful memory.

Dad’s 70th Birthday.
After having to cancel the family get together at the last minute I booked a stay for us at the Summer Isles Hotel. It was the first weekend in August and the sun shone between showers. Scenery, seafood, drinks in the bar with Blue the dog. Walking along the coast in the morning. We always holidayed on the west coast when I was a kid. Camping, sheep, beach walks and the smell of fresh summer rain.
A special birthday making new memories and evoking old ones.

One evening recently on Nairn beach my son Angus proposed to his girlfriend Victoria.
Such a happy special occasion, celebrated with both families the following evening with champagne and lighting a Love Candle from Coast Candles. Memorable!
Now planning a Scottish wedding in November in Edinburgh. Something to look forward to in difficult times.


My happiest memories are walking beaches in Scotland, either Findhorn, Nairn or Dornoch, sand between your toes, sea a myriad of different shades, gorse in the background, and a breeze in my hair. Sunny or cloudy – it doesn’t matter, it’s the sense of time standing still. Then back to a roaring fire in the holiday cottage and a tot of the water of life! Magical. All the Coast Candle scents take me back to my happy place, whether smoky and rich or light and summery.
Thanks again for such a wonderful range.

I visited New York last year for my sisters 40th Birthday celebrations. I’d been there before but this time was different. We walked all over the city and took in so many sights and had the best time together! We booked a restaurant for a special meal for her and she was blown away with it. It’s a birthday she will never forget and we have the best memories from it.

My favourite celebration is a little different, but means the world to me.
On the afternoon of the 23rd of March this year the country went into full lockdown… But earlier that morning my partner Tom and I got married.
You spend so much time imagining what your wedding will look like… big white dress grand venue with all of your nearest and dearest. I had big plans after I got engaged last year, but the world had other ideas! I didn’t find out until that morning that we got the green light to marry in a very socially distanced and very sterilised ceremony with only a handful of loved ones able to attend. Sounds terrible right? But what it made me realise, was that all of the big stuff doesn’t matter. It was the worst day for so many in the UK, but for me, it was my happiest, because quite simply: I got to marry my best friend.
I’ve always been a huge fan of your candles, especially Whisky Galore!

I can smell the pine of the freshly cut tree that the lights are twinkling and dancing on.
The singing echoed high in the vaulted ceiling, it truly sounded like angels. The snow was falling outside in the darkness, but I felt all snug inside wrapped in my warm red coat, I sang along as I held my dad’s hand, he smiled as he looked down at me. The church is only a little country church but as I stood inside on that night, it seemed huge. I was ten years old.
Even as an adult almost fifty years on, I still attend the Watchman’s Christmas Eve church service to celebrate Christmas.

My birthday makes me fuzzy
Makes my heart go all slushy
Is a day at the beach with the family
Resting in the sun lazily
Till the kids shout ‘can we go in the sea’
We’re all there jumping waves shouting whoppee
Look at each other we’re soaking wet
back to the beach for egg baguettes
Go to the shop for ice cream
Then back laying in the warm sunbeams
Then flying the kites way up high
Watching them soar watching them fly
Then back home kids sleep in the car
We had the best day by far.
