Harriet Allure’s scented candles are the result of a shared journey of the two long-time friends, Freddy and Alex, who were born and raised Germany with roots in Ghana, West Africa.
Despite their different paths, they share a common understanding of both countries as their home. After pursuing higher education and careers in different cities and countries, they learned to embrace the idea of a home being more than one place or even nowhere. Their experience of them being caught between two worlds, having a nomadic lifestyle or simply just missing home inspired them to create a product that resonates with people who have similar experiences. The candles represent the light amid the darkness of life, the hope for a bright future, and the nostalgia of cherished people and special places.
Our inspiration for the organic shape of our design originates from nature and a desire to capture the essence of human uniqueness and their belonging. Just as no two jars ever share identical forms, each one of us carries a distinct journey marked by adaptability and distinctiveness. Our jars mirrors the diversity we celebrate in people, embracing their true selves and cultural heritage.
