Luxury fragrance and candles

Story and ethos

McKinley & Paget was founded on a sofa one evening in late 2015. With a glass of wine in one hand and yet another disappointing candle in the other, Jake Paget was at a loss. He and Daniel McKinley faced a challenge: a gift for a good friend's birthday. It should have been so simple: she likes candles, good design and natural things, so a plant-based candle that didn't look and smell terrible would have been ideal. The trouble was that just didn't seem to exist. Anywhere. Thus began their fragrance journey.

Jake and Daniel offer a range of high-quality natural home and personal fragrance that they produce by hand in London keeping in mind always “how can we make this more sustainable?”. They make everything so they, and you, know exactly what’s in it. No technical doublespeak, no greenwashing, just the truth printed right on the packaging.

McKinley & Paget share a mission to make the cleanest candle possible. Committed to championing plant-based alternatives and sustainable materials, they have created a range of home and personal fragrance products. Using 100% pure essential oils, plant waxes, steel, aluminium and as little plastic as possible, we create a range of products from candles to perfume that is a treat to your nose and the planet.

We have the first fragrance subscription focused on learning. You should be able to learn about scent without becoming a perfumery bore! McKinley & Paget's Scent Exploration Club is a way to discover new scents, and develop your olfactory skills at the same time. Every month, you will learn one Perfumery Principle, the bedrock of how we create and understand scents. We use these principles in the creation of all our candles and perfumes. Month by month, with mindful sniffing and by building your internal scent library, you will improve your ability to notice different aromas and how they interact - you'll improve your sense of smell! We believe the best way to learn is through discovery – new oils, profiles and inspirations – with a few core principles underneath. We're excited to take this journey with you!

A very welcome treat in lockdown – like taking a mini- holiday.
