Our Story

Our Story

Our name Gold Hart was inspired by a Hart, a mature stag synonymous with landscape and grandeur of Scotland. If you are lucky enough to have experienced the majestic beauty of the Scottish countryside, you will understand the well-being effect the natural landscape has on your soul. 

The Gold Hart concept was created to bring a part of Scotland into your home. Smell is one of the most intimate of the senses and is linked to our emotions. Burning a Gold Hart candle whilst curled up on the sofa will instantly evoke deep rooted emotion of the Scottish landscape; highland, lowland or coastal retreat as you desire. 

 

All handmade in Scotland, the manufacturing of Gold Hart candles involves combining quality ingredients with careful control of temperature. Once the wax and perfume is blended, its poured by hand into the glass vessel, this ensures that the perfume runs all the way through the candle to provide the scent to the very last burn. The cotton wick is held in place and the wax is left to cure and cool for two days.

 

The design of the gold foiled Hart logo on the matt black glass vessel and the use of black wax was important to distinguish from what is normally available.  The unlit candle is a modern day ornament providing an interior accessory with both a cold and hot scent throw. They are then packaged by hand into a two part foiled box.

 

 

After your last burn you can carefully wash out the glass with hot water to dispel any wax remnants and be filled with whatever your heart desires. 

Our founder Lorraine McKenna created Gold Hart to deliver these emotions to you, whilst adding a beautifully designed interior accessory to your home.

 

Lorraine has drawn from her experience working as a fashion buyer for a luxury independent fashion store. It was this experience in the showrooms of Gucci, Prada and Dior, working with aspirational heritage brands that motivated her to create a niche Scottish product accessible to all.
