Amazing candle & amazing service from Bays & Leo. I was worried how my candle would handle postage, but it was so well packaged it arrived perfect & quickly! And the candle is devine!

I love my bespoke candle. From the beautiful pottery vessel I get to reuse, the devine fragrance, the crackle of the wood wicks to the shiny gemstones, the whole lot is just beautiful

We've had your candle burning at night for a few weeks now (OMG the wooden wick is something else!). Nothing like walking into the house with the smell of tarragon roast chicken and the romance scent (ooh la laa). We're almost due a refill. We have heaps of candles and melts but this is our fave go to!

My clients loved their candle I purchased from Bays and Leo as their wedding gift, that was scented with Amalfi Coast. It was a lovely memory of their holiday they booked through me a few years ago.
