“Where you tend a rose, my lad, a thistle cannot grow.”
– Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.
Welcome to The Secret Garden: an imaginary stone-walled hideaway.
Part-homage to Frances Hodgson Burnett’s gentle children’s classic – set in Yorkshire, of course – this delicate fragrance combines home-grown floral favourites such as rose, hyacinth and geranium with contemporary notes of jasmine and recently-revived elderflower.
Add a dash of Earl Grey and a fresh green cucumber accord and the result is botanical alchemy: a lightly floral fragrance which lifts, calms and inspires.
The Secret Garden is presented in The Little Yorkshire Candle Company’s signature chic white glass case and comes complete with a Wedgwood-inspired gift box. Simply light the linen wick to conjure balmy summer days with nothing more than a cup of tea, sunshine and a good book to occupy your mind.
Like all of our candles, The Secret Garden is 100% natural, born of botanics.
Our candles comprise essential oils, plant extracts, beeswax, soya and coconut and a natural cotton or linen wick, depending on the fragrance. No synthetics, no hidden nasties.
Each candle is hand-poured in small batches in our North Yorkshire studio.
