Our Story

Atlantic Lights was born out of a love for home fragrance and the relocation of our family to the beautiful west coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. As candle lovers, we felt that there was an opportunity to create a range of candles with fragrances derived from our surroundings whilst showcasing this wonderful part of the world.

Our home overlooks the beautiful lesser known Shawbost beach on the west coast of the island, where we can watch the vastly traveled Atlantic waves breaking as they roll in towards the beach. Clear nights allow an unobstructed view of the flashing beacon of the Butt of Lewis lighthouse from our kitchen window and on a clear night, the lustre of the Northern Lights. Thus, we decided that Atlantic Lights would be a fitting name for our new venture.   

Seeing this opportunity, in November 2019 we began mixing small batches of soy wax, turning the kitchen table into our very own candle laboratory. We sampled various fragrances and experimented with different recipes to find the perfect pour for our products. Family and friends were laden with samples, and their feedback  was invaluable in allowing us to settle on our first five fragrances.


We hope that our fragrances – whether enjoyed through the flame of a candle or the aroma of a reed diffuser – will remind you of the Isle of Lewis or inspire you to explore the wonders of our beautiful island.

Wow, is just what I can say about the Rhubarb and Rose. We received this candle and diffuser from Sheila in Atlantic Lights as a tester / present. Since bought some more melts through facebook contact and will be a return customer. Good Luck in the future.

Was delighted to receive the beautifully wrapped wax melts quickly in the post. Really impressed with the quality of Atlantic Lights wax melts. I have tried other wax melts . Atlantic Lights wax melts have a beautiful long-lasting smell. I particularly enjoyed the Rhubarb and Rose ones as they brought back childhood sweet memories. The melts are easy and clean to use and do not have residue like some others. Really recommend them. Definitely worth the money for the quality and long-lasting smell.

Absolutely loving the gorgeous scents from these candles and diffusers from Atlantic Lights. The LUSTRE diffuser is definitely my favourite. Our home smells AMAZING! Thank you so much guys and all the very best with your new venture. You’ll shine.

You can tell its top-quality wax used in these Candles as they burn perfectly. I preferred the Large candle myself as I felt it was better value for money. Fragrance from candles and melts are long lasting and can still smell the following morning. Beautiful presentation, unique gift to remind someone a bit about home. Loving Rhubarb and Rose collection.
