Our Time Candles & Diffusers Ltd was started in 2021 by Leanne as a small home business making and selling quality home fragrance products.
Fragrances can invoke the greatest memories or make new ones. It can also be powerful in changing or enhancing moods so can be good for your health and well-being.
It was important for us to ensure we could make really good products. There are already plenty of candles and diffusers on the market but, as we came to realise, many of them don't really perform as well as they should.
We also didn't want gimmicks, no colours or glitter, and just wanted our products to perform great.
Starting out in March 2021 with sourcing and testing, we spent the next 4 months perfecting and designing our products. By August we were ready to launch and that big day arrived on 28th August 2021.
We launched online first and were actually on holiday as we launched for the bank holiday weekend. It wasn't the most relaxing holiday we've ever had...
The first few months went well and we attended a few local Christmas Fairs which was the first time people had the chance to view, hold and smell the products in person. We had some amazing comments and feedback!
Fast forward to 2022 and the opportunity arose to open a retail store in the shopping village at Hopley House. We had an option a few months earlier but it felt too soon...this time the timing felt right and almost felt like it was meant to be.
We visited the site and, after a few sleepless nights juggling the finances, decided to go for it. We opened on the 12th March 2022 and thus far we are really enjoying the journey.
We are getting some excellent reviews and customers are returning time and again. Right now we couldn't be happier but we know this is only the start.
So...where does Our Time Candles & Diffusers stem from?
We're all busy in some way or another. Life moves too fast and we rarely, if ever, take any time for ourselves.
Life is too short so it is time we all took time out for ourselves and created that little moment of "our time". That's where Our Time comes in...
So whether you want to enhance your mood, change your mood or simply relax and pamper your senses then Our Time Candles & Diffusers can certainly help you create your own piece of time; whether that's me time or our time the choice is yours.
Creating special moments through the power of fragrance!
