Who says candles are just for mum? Historic Eton candle maker, William West Candles’ luxurious home fragrance collection is perfect for spoiling dad this Father’s Day.

Hand-poured, vegan friendly and cruelty free, William West’s soy-based candles come in a range of scents, each carefully designed by the Berkshire company’s own in-house candle maker, Olga Line.

She said, “Our beautifully scented candles are a wonderful gift for Father’s Day as they help to create a beautifully fragranced space, inspired by some of his favourite things. Perfect to light and relax, each candle lasts for hours and is hand poured for an extra special touch.”

Inspired by Dorney Lake, which played host to the 2012 Olympic Rowing events, the Dorney Lake candle is reminiscent of a spring afternoon, laden with fruity notes of mandarin and lime, with base notes of basil to give an earthy addition. With a 65+ hours burn time, this candle can be enjoyed for weeks to come.

For dads who love nothing more than a cosy night in, the Castle Fireplace features a wooden wick which crackles as it burns. Steeped in history, it’s inspired by nearby Windsor Castle’s 300 fireplaces. The beautiful fireside scent can be enjoyed over a 65+ hours burn time.

Or, bring a taste of the exotic to this Father’s Day with the William West Tangier Lane candle, inspired by the historic city of Tangier. With Moroccan spices, tobacco and honey notes, this beautiful candle will fill dad’s space with a sense of adventure. It has a 65+ hours burn time.
