My name is Sharon Bruce and I am the creator of Fox & Figgy scented luxury and my mission is to inspire the senses, illuminate your dreams & to bring the essence of luxury into your home.
My love of candles started many many moons ago when I first started working in high end spas, every treatment room would be filled with the beautiful aromas and the wonderful glow of the flames creating a warm and welcoming ambiance. Whether its the scent of uplifting zesty citrus, warming rich & earthy or a delicate pretty floral I love the way that a candle has the power to transform the atmosphere and evoke memories and heartfelt emotions.
After more than 30 years working in the beauty industry I had a long held burning desire to get creative and was inspired to learn the art of candle making and start creating my own candle and wax melt business and with an aromatherapy qualification behind me I know how to blend essential oils to aid in bringing about a change in emotional states so I have also created a therapeutic aromatherapy range along side my first signature collection.
The name Fox & Figgy came from nicknames of both myself and of my hubby, I have always called him my silver fox as he has had grey hair from the day I met him over 20 years ago, the figgy part came from a nickname a friend from when we were living in Spain gave me and he has always called me, I believe its something to do with Sharon being an exotic fruit and so is a fig!!
All the candles and melts are made with love and care from my studio and kitchen at home using natural wax from rapeseed oil and coconut oil and nothing else. It is completely free from paraffin, soy, palm, beeswax and synthetic additives, it is completely eco & vegan friendly and without the use of additives or animal products and with high quality wicks they burn cleanly and safely. I only make small batches of candles and melts at a time to ensure the quality. All wax melts are individually wrapped and labelled by hand - how artisan is that!
This is a very new venture for me and as time goes on I am hoping to grow and evolve the business, to keep adding to the collection so please watch this space.
I hope you enjoy the products as much as I have loved making them for you.
