OUR STORY


幽玄– YUUGEN

Translation : An awareness of the universe.

Its meaning is “subtle grace” or “mysterious profundity.”

“An awareness of the nature of the universe that’s too deep and mysterious for words – the oneness of all things – to the point where it affects you emotionally.”

We are a husband and wife team and we launched our company in 2020. We wanted to create artisan products and that were unique and a little different to anything else on the market.

We have been crafting and creating candles since 2010.

We wanted our products to be sustainable and this is why we use a completely natural Coconut wax with rapeseed. Our wax is free from palm wax, beeswax, petroleum, pesticides and herbicides. Our wicks are lead-free and and are simply made from pure cotton and linen with paper cores.

Everything is made by hand by us in our little workshop which we nickname ‘The Lab’ from the measuring and hand pouring, to the labelling.

We love sleek modern lines and  combining feminine and masculine together in design and in fragrance. 

Our unique blends are bespoke and a lot of our fragrances are inspired by our time travelling.

We were lucky enough to experience the scents from around the world, mainly The Middle East and far East Asia. Many of our inspirations come from the spice markets of old downtown Dubai, souks from around The Middle East and Far East Asia taking in that unforgettable lingering scent of Oudh and Attar Rose.

We wanted to be able to share those special memories and feelings that traveling gives us.

We put a lot of thought into every detail of the products, Our passion lies in creating intriguing scents based on our travels and memories, then transforming them.

Scent has the power to take you on a journey back in time or into the future to certain memories and places. Every scent created has a story behind it.
