Marianne is our first-ever collaboration, created with the illustration-led lifestyle brand, Max Made Me Do It.
Based in South London, MMMDI sells the artwork of its founder, designer and artist Carol Maxwell, as a wide range of prints and products. Carol chose Marianne North as the inspiration behind the GLØD x MMMDI candle and she also hand-painted the stunning geraniums and lavender that appear on its label.
Marianne North was a botanical artist who travelled the world alone in search of unique plants and flowers in their natural settings – something that challenged both the tradition of Victorian art and the expectations of women. Her pioneering journeys were regularly featured in British newspapers and her talent gained the admiration of notable scientists, including Charles Darwin.
To celebrate Marianne’s incredible story, we started with a warm and woody base of rosewood oil, which is harvested from trees that are indigenous to Brazil, where Marianne created more than 100 paintings. Rosewood combines beautifully with fresh geranium and aromatic lavender, and these flowers are native to other places that Marianne visited: South Africa and the Mediterranean respectively (though lavender is commonly known as ‘English lavender’, which we think is a fitting nod to Marianne’s homeland).
The overall effect is an uplifting floral scent with soothing, earthy undertones and exotic hints. We hope you love it as much as we do.
Our Marianne scented soy wax candle is available in our medium jar, with a burn time of approximately 50 hours.
ABOUT GLØD SCENTED SOY WAX CANDLES
GLØD candles are lovingly hand-poured by us, Jo and Charlotte, in our studio in South London. We only use the purest essential oils, cotton wicks and natural soy wax, which means our candles are vegan friendly and burn cleanly and evenly with no black soot and without emitting harmful toxins. Check out our candle care guide to get the best out of your soy wax candle.
Each candle is presented in a reusable amber jar that glows softly and features a screw-top lid to preserve the fragrance and protect the wax from dust. It’s important to us that we minimise our environmental impact, so we wrap every order in plastic-free, recyclable packaging and choose recycled materials whenever possible.
For every candle or gift set we sell, we donate £1 to support the incredible work of the charity Women for Women UK, which helps survivors of war rebuild their lives.
