Luxurious Ortigia candles will fill any room with the rich scents of Sicily. These delectably fragranced wax candles are perfect for the home. Contained in signature glass jars, attractively ridged, which creates a stunning effect as the candle burns, and decorated with an ocelot.
All Ortigia products are made by small family companies who pride themselves on the quality of their products. The highly decorative packaging is designed by Sue Townsend and draws on exotic Sicilian images and colours.
The base of all the products is natural perfume and natural ingredients: olive oil, vegetable glycerine and organic colours. No sodium lauryl sulphate, nickel or silicone; products not tested on animals. Paraben-free, the range uses traditional products with modern ethics and integrity.
Sicily’s history of conquest, invasion and assimilation, reflected in its uniquely rich and layered culture, has inspired the creation of the Ortigia range, named after a small island off Sicily’s south-eastern coast.
Choose from the following scents:
- Ambra Nera (Musky Amber & Spice Wood), rich with the natural essence of labdanum, oak musk, galbanum and amber resin

- Florio (Sicilian Wild Spring Flowers), a soft and delicate combination of narcissus, wild iris and jasmine
