#1 What is Urban Apothecary?
Urban Apothecary is a UK-based, vegan, luxury home fragrance brand that places sustainable materials and ethical responsibility at its core.
Their signature product are their candles, which are made from soy wax. Not only does soy wax burn slower and last much longer than the usual paraffin wax, it is also non-toxic – which makes it much better for both the environment and your health!
Every scent from the range is inspired by a mood or memory from the brand’s founder and creative force, Tajinder Banwait. From walking in woodland after rain to catching the intriguing perfumed sillage of a passing stranger, the brand’s fragrance inspirations also call upon popular collective childhood memories.
Take the Wild Berry scent for example, which is inspired by the memory of gathering juicy blackberries from English hedgerows.
As a child, I loved discovering edible treats on countryside walks. I remember the enjoyment, the juicy berries and the country air, all of which translated into a scent that’s fresh and playful, richly laden with blackberry, cassis and leafy greens.
