Almanac

Milkwood x South East London Journal

 

We collaborated with South East London Journal to create three candles based on individual areas. You can find them featured in Issue No.8, their Winter Edition; free copies are stocked in all good independent outlets across the SE postcodes. 

Forest Hill
Inspired by Victorian tea trader, Frederick Horniman, this blend features aromatic notes of Bergamot – the key ingredient of Earl Grey Tea – combined with sweet notes of Geranium, found in the Horniman Gardens, set against a warm base of woody notes – a nod to Forest Hill’s history as part of the Great North Wood.

Dulwich
The name Dulwich or 'Dilwihs' was first recored in 967 AD and means ‘marshy meadow where dill grows’. A subtle inflection of dill combined with the calm and uplifting notes of rosewood and neroli makes this a restorative and calming blend.

Peckham
This blend is inspired by the colourful fruit stalls of Rye Lane – perhaps the most vivid street of South East London – with the gentle spice and perky notes of black pepper, taken from the seasoning of Peckham’s infamous chicken shops.
