OCTŌ, a family-run artisanal fragrance venture, sprouted from humble beginnings in 2017. Starting out by pouring candles in our very own kitchen at home, we have since blossomed into a thriving team operating from our charming studio located in a serene corner of South London.
Our journey began with a simple yet profound love for candles. Frustrated by the scarcity of genuinely natural options in the market, we decided to embark on a mission to create our own distinctive range.
At OCTŌ, every facet of our candle-making process is overseen by the collaborative efforts of our co-founders, Ieva and François, along with our remarkable team. We handle each step of production with unwavering dedication and meticulous attention to detail.
Our passion for this craft is unwavering, evident by the fact that not a single day goes by without us indulging in the warm, inviting glow of our own creations. We firmly believe that to share something with others, you must first cherish it yourself.
Guided by our genuine adoration for candles and the cherished memories they invoke, OCTŌ was born. Our mission: to offer natural, affordable, and original products that bring warmth, comfort, and authenticity to your life. Unlike many candles on the market that use synthetic fragrances, we pride ourselves on using pure essential oils, ensuring that our scents are not only captivating but also naturally derived. These oils infuse our candles with the authentic, soothing scents inspired by the beauty of nature, the tranquility of the countryside, and the ever-changing seasons, adding an extra layer of sensory delight to your home
