I do love a good story. I like to know how the people behind the brand got into candle making in the first place. It’s hard going and takes a huge amount of dedication. You have to be part alchemist, part perfumer, part dreamer. We are delighted to introduce Serena Francis, founder of Melitarose.
Melitarose was created by Londoner Serena Francis in 2014 whilst on maternity leave. Wanting to use this time to relax, enjoy the experience and channel her entrepreneurial spirit, she decided to start her own brand and create footsteps towards her future.
The company name comes from a culmination of her grandmother’s name ‘Melita’ and her mother’s name ‘Rose’, both of whom are important and influential figures within her life. A brand made of simplicity and nostalgia, the idea was based on Rose’s love of candles and Melita’s hours spent working on her beautiful rose garden.
Melita sadly passed away in November 2014 suffering a long battle with dementia but the essence of her commitment to hard work, strong family values and love will always be imprinted within her family.
We all know that it’s the simple things in life that make us happy; a good story, a relaxing candle, or a treat in the form of flowers, champagne, or the smell of fresh linen.
Melitarose embodies all of these elements through a collection of beautiful hand-poured candles made with natural soy wax & created with passion, care and attention.
Available in beautiful scents; Tuberose, Champagne Pomegranate, Sweet Orange & Chilli, Lemongrass Kiwi Cassis, Lime, Basil & Mandarin, Fresh Linen, Amaretto and Black Raspberry & Vanilla – offering a range that can step into any environment and make it relaxing within moments. Shop Melitarose
