A new store has opened its doors on Portland Road in Hove, East Sussex with a beautiful selection of products and fragrances that can be seen, touched and smelt in the flesh. WICK candle boutique is an independent candle + scent boutique with a unique range of fragrances and gifts sourced from the UK and overseas.
With candles, incense, bath products and body oils, as well as wrapping paper and cards, the contemporary boutique is a perfect new addition to Portland Road. It sits alongside a number of other independent businesses including shops, cafes and interior design services.
Owners of WICK Anna McAllan and Roxanna Ashton said “We are really pleased to be part of Portland Road. There are some great independent businesses here and brilliant new ones opening all the time. We wanted to do something unique and be part of a growing and authentic independent business community. We also thought this area might like what we do and we have had a fantastic response so far.”
The WICK range is constantly updated so frequent visitors will find something new on each trip. It stocks the latest fragrances and styles while also offering heritage combinations when only a tried and trusted aroma will do. The collection includes the hard to find Blackbird Incense. The cult Seattle-based brand is known for its innovative range of scented perfumes and Wick Candle Boutique is one of the few limited stockists in the UK.
WICK also stocks SKANDINAVISK, a well-established brand with a bestselling collection of scented candles. Inspired by the Scandinavian way of life, SKANDINAVISK candles adhere to traditional values; simple but comforting with a scent that “nourishes the soul”.
Beauty buffs will also find Liha Beauty products in store. Its range of natural, handcrafted organic skin care is made in small batches in Cheltenham and Hackney and will soon also be stocked in Liberty.
As the store is so unique to Portland Road, most ranges of scents and brands are also exclusive to the area. With an interior that is calm and soothing, not to mention smells amazing, WICK makes shopping for candles a pleasure.
Anna added, “ We really wanted to showcase an eclectic range of products from home and abroad. We have candles and scent products from London, Suffolk, Seattle, Paris, Barcelona and Sweden to name a few. We love the fact customers can smell and touch the products and learn about new ranges they have not seen before and can even burn a candle or choose incense and sample it here on request! We hope they will buy for their own home and drop in when they need a unique gift too”.
WICK offers free gift wrapping services for all of their products and an assortment of stylish cards and paper, making it the perfect place to pick up a present for a loved one.
