When it comes to interviewing brands we tend to always start at the beginning. Charting their journey from the source to get to know where they came from so we can better understand where they are now. This couldn’t be more relevant than with one of our longest standing brands, Earl of East. Back in 2015 when our own store was only one year young, we started stocking the then little known, small batch candle brand based on their design integrity and their perfectly curated range of fragrances. After three years working together we thought it was about time to catch up with founders Paul Firmin and Niko Dafkos to talk taking a small batch approach to making their now infamous candles, and hear more tales of their travels told through the brand’s bespoke fragrances.
