Back in 2019 we had the privilege of meeting Crystal Cole whilst she was on the hunt for a new studio and instantly knew she would be a perfect fit to join The Engine House. We have never met such a lovely team that can instantly fill the corridors with laughter as well as the beautiful scents like Baby Bum, Irish Coffee & Cassis & Fig (these are the types of candles they makes by the way).
Crystal’s inspiration for her candles comes from many memories growing up in England and some of these influences are largely seen in her chosen scents for candle making.
Crystal Cole pride themselves on being as eco friendly as possible by making Shampoo bars and there may even be some new products in the future involving refilling which will be exciting.
Her passion for candles began in her teenage years and continued throughout her adulthood, where candles and diffusers adorned every room in her house. After undertaking a number of candle making courses as a hobbyist, she discovered her passion for selecting and mixing scents was becoming more than just a hobby and something she felt a strong connection to and was something that she took further when she personalised a scent for her winter wonderland themed wedding to her husband, Ian.
By carefully researching and selecting scents which evoked winter memories to her nearest and dearest, she created a scent for her wedding and reception venues, which impressed her guests so much, that she was asked to create the same sensory experience for two of her friends weddings the following year. Word of mouth referrals followed and Crystal became a full time chandler, creating her own line of luxury signature scented candles and personalised scents.
