Primary Candles

Our Primary Candles are the cornerstone of the MIXMY concept.
As primary colours combine with each other to create new colours,
our MIXMY Primary Candle fragrances combine with each other to create whole new Scent Destinations
.

Each Primary Candle contains a fragrance blend that has been meticulously designed to combine
with every other MIXMY fragrance, giving you a palette of carefully curated home fragrances
that allow you to adapt your fragrance depending on your mood, the weather or the occasion.

Burn alongside another to create whole new Scent Destinations™.
Your journey of scent discovery begins here.

Your Primary Candle

Each MIXMY Primary Candle is hand crafted using a blend of sustainable, 100% natural vegetable wax and the finest fragrance oils for the ultimate scent discovery experience.
Whilst our bespoke glass is completely recyclable, we offer a range of Primary Candle Refills so our glass can be reused time and time again.

Candle Care

Burn the candle long enough to allow all the surface wax to become liquid, usually between 2-4 hours. This is particularly important on the very first burn to prevent tunnelling. Maximum recommended burn time is 4 hours. To help prevent sooting, always trim the wick to 5mm before lighting. If soot should form on the inside of the glass, extinguish flame, wait for wax to solidify, then wipe clean using warm, soapy water. Avoid using anything sharp or abrasive inside the glass as this can mark the internal decoration.

CANDLE CARE TIPS

Glass Care & Reuse

To prepare your MIXMY glass ready for reuse, place the glass in the freezer for at least an hour until the residual wax becomes brittle, then push one side of the residual wax pool to release the wick and wax from the glass in one piece and discard.
Clean the glass using warm, soapy water and a soft cloth. Harsh cleaning products should not be used.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT use cutlery or anything sharp to remove the wick or wax, and DO NOT use anything abrasive to clean the glass, as this can mark the internal decoration.

Are you as over this cold, wet Spring weather as much as we are?!
Try combining 1. SOFT / FLORAL with 3. CITRUS / OCEANIC and let the delicate floral notes combine with the sun-soaked citrus and refreshing fir needle and sea salt accords to create the Scent Destination™ of #SunBathedMediterraneanTerrace. 
We can’t guarantee to transport you in person, but close your eyes, take in the aroma and you’re there… on a sun-baked terrace beneath a cloudless azure sky as soft, floral notes linger on the gentle sea breeze.

Starting the day with 3. CITRUS / OCEANIC for a morning boost.
 
It’s also the perfect kitchen candle fragrance as the bright, refreshing scent replaces kitchen smells. 
 
Change the mood by playing around with different pairs of MIXMY candles. 
This evening, I’m adding 5. WOOD / SMOULDER to number 3 to create the beautifully mellow Scent Destination™ of #DuskOnTheAmalfiCoast.

MIXMY | Combine to create
I’m generally quite a private person, but as MIXMY grows, I feel I should step out from behind the brand (and out of my comfort zone 😬).
So I’m going to start by sharing a little about myself.

I’m Vicky, Founder of MIXMY.

I’ve spent my career specialising in product development and marketing for incredible beauty and home fragrance brands, including Elemis, Shiseido and NEOM Organics.

I went to Newcastle University to study Agri-Business Management & Marketing, and despite being a dairy farmer’s daughter, I chose to make a career out of anti-ageing cream rather than double cream!

My first product development role was for a global beauty brand based in Sydney, where I lived for a number of years. It was there I met my husband. We moved to London, and eventually North Yorkshire where we now live with our two children and three Jack Russells.

I can’t sit still. My idea of relaxation is doing, so on holiday it’s very rarely you’ll see me sat by a pool. I’ll take a ski holiday over a sun holiday any day.

My mum can make anything. When I was growing up, she liked to make clothes for my two sisters and I.

She liked to try out different techniques, so when I wasn’t sporting one of her batwing jumpers, I was often dressed in Victorian-style smocked dresses and Elizabethan ruffs 😱. The memory still haunts me 😂.

I’ve recently discovered Bahlsen Choco Leibniz Chunky Mint Chocolate Biscuits (a name that doesn’t roll off the tongue that easily!) - trust me, they are AMAZING!

To the amusement of those close to me, ‘I Am The One and Only’ by Chesney Hawkes will always get me on the dance floor.
