This season we decided to focus on those things that we treasure. As a marked year in history, 2020 did not seem right for the Jonathan Ward brand to release another new candle. Working with a fellow craftsman and jewellery designer, who like us, makes each of his adornments by hand. Over the years he has collected gold, platinum and silver dust as he carves and crafts. The dust contaminates, the second it touches the work surface so can never be melted down purely. We decided it could be quite wonderful to engrave our signature logo into the Jonathan Ward Italian glass and fill the engraving with the precious metal. Modern luxury up-cycling using the discards of luxury.

Jonathan Ward candles are hand poured using a certified organic wax blend. Complex fragrances delivered in the cleanest way. British craftsmanship, global spirit.

Before commerce met medicine, we foraged, we crushed, we concocted. Relying solely on the spoils of nature at foot and hand “Afreet” builds from original tincture, potion and medicine. A cloak trailed across forest floor grazing a litany of bruised blackberry, guaiac bark embedded in wet peat. The pestle and mortar continues on to crush liquorice root, black pepper and rose leaf (caught before the precipice of rot). A sullen portrait in black with a wistful wink.

The decoy of commercial medicine gave the jumping off point to create a scent inspired by found 17th century recipe. A sweet poison originally designed to heal and repair human ails. A touch of witchcraft. The cheek and spirit of this aroma concludes with black amber. A night when stars hide and feathered friends are silent.
