The Muses is an independent candle design studio, based in London. They are a small team, handcrafting candles using a blend of beeswax, rapeseed, coconut and soy wax, essential oils and phthalate-free fragrance oils. The idea for The Muses was formed in 2017 by Fiona Utting in a kitchen, in the sun-drenched city of Johannesburg, South Africa. The style and direction for The Muses was honed between the streets of London and Fiona's African adventures. Now back in London, The Muses launched in May 2020, with a full commitment to sustainable & ethical practices.
