Scent Around the World

Alexia Peck has designed some beautiful scented candles that will take you to your favourite places on days you can't be there.

With a mixture of different scents and notes these candles are the perfect reminder of all your favourite places.

And once the candle has burnt away you still have a beautiful paperweight to adorn your office table.

Alexia Peck Norfolk Scented Candle with Paperweight Lid £78.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

A long, long walk. Starting on a beach with delicately drawn cliffs, over grassy fields, with blustery winds, past handsome old houses and churches, with the smell of the sea always there with you. End, of course, in an impossibly charming village pub packed with locals and staffed by a bartender who moved to the area for love. Alexia Peck’s Norfolk scented candle brings us there, with its notes of samphire, bergamot, sweet pea and musk.

Alexia Peck London Scented Candle with Paperweight Lid £78.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

We’ll start at the top, with Hampstead Heath and the wildflowers in its air and then move a little south to the 12,000 roses in Queen Mary’s Gardens in Regent’s Park. There’s Kew, of course, and Chelsea. And the secret gardens: Rembrandt Gardens, Kyoto Gardens, or Kensington Roof Gardens, where you can lounge with a drink. Alexia Peck’s London scented candle will take you to these places on days you can’t get to them.

Alexia Peck Hamptons Scented Candle with Paperweight Lid £78.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

We probably don’t need to explain to you just how glamorous the Hamptons is. The string of seaside towns at the end of Long Island is extremely beautiful and that’s why it’s the favourite holiday destination for, well, a string of much-loved former US presidents, actors and Ricky Lauren even wrote a book about it. Alexia Peck captures the scents of summer in the Hamptons scented candle, with honeysuckle, pear and freesia.

Alexia Peck Paris Scented Candle with Paperweight Lid £78.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

Come with me, mon ami, from a bakery on the Rue du Bac – here, take this slice of lemon tart, it’s fantastic – and we can stroll down to the river together, maybe leaf through a few books at this stall and – why not? – pop into the Musee d’Orsay and take in some of the paintings. Have we transported you to Paris? No? Ah, c’est dommage. We shall have to leave that to Alexia Peck’s evocative scented candle.

Alexia Peck Provence Scented Candle with Paperweight Lid £78.00 Selfridges (Shop Now)

It has fields of lavender waving in the breeze and woodsmoke coming from chimneys in the areas around Aix-en-Provence, and it has the French Riviera. It has Grenache, Chardonnay and, of course, Côtes de Provence rosé. It’s a slower pace of life in Provence, a little more focused on matters of pleasure. It’s the herby scent in the air, the soundtrack of cicadas and the busy kitchens that are captured in Alexia Peck’s scented candle.
