About FAR Candle Company
We design, produce and ship all our products from our home in Ramsbottom, England. Our aim has always been to produce a luxury, affordable, sustainable candle with a serious scent to fill your home. We believe our candles shouldn’t be saved for special occasions – they should be an everyday luxury.
FAR was founded to fulfil a creative urge that had been bubbling beneath the surface for many years! It had always been put on the back burner when bills and children became a priority – office jobs filled this time, namely management roles within the travel and retail industries. In the middle of this office based career founder Nicole worked a Christmas stint at Jo Malone – just for fun, just to work with beautiful products that she loved. And that’s what inspired her to change the course of her office based career – how cool would it be to hand make a gorgeous product, work with amazing scents and be passionate about sharing this with other people?
So – research and production began in 2017. Lots of testing, lots of mistakes, lots of learning – lots of determination to keep our aim of luxury, affordable, sustainable candles with a serious scent on track, until we reached the apothecary inspired brand we are very proud to share with you today.
Behind The Scenes
What’s in a name? Well in this case, our children Freya And Robby – or simply FAR. Driving us on, driving us a little mad, but inevitably inspiring us to create a life that allows us quality time together, whilst working hard producing something we love.
Working quietly behind the scenes is Keith whose career has followed an unconventional route as an air traffic controller, turned marketing director, turned business owner. Always helping with labels, design and website – without question, the digital rock behind FAR.
