    Nostaljik's Story

    I was sitting on the balcony of my nana’s home in Cyprus where I would usually sit, on a hot evening with my sister. We have been doing this ever since we were six years old. Our parents would send us on our six-week holiday break from London to Cyprus to stay with her in the village. Our days would be so fun, playing with the local kids in the village, the evenings would be just us sitting, playing cards with our cousins on my nana’s balcony. The smell of her Jasmine tree would always hit me when there was a breeze and I would always associate this smell with her. That picture-perfect moment I captured sitting on the balcony would be the memory that would always stay with me. It would be one of the reasons I couldn’t wait to go back, year after year. I always felt like I was always going home. Growing up I always associated smell with memories and if I stepped into a room the smell would always transport me back to a place and time that would remind me of something or someone. This year, while I was sitting at my nana's I just thought, I wish I could bottle up this smell and take it home with me. I have always had a love for candles and have bought so many and tried and tested a few, but I always felt it was missing something and now I know it wasn’t the smell that I was trying to get out the candle but a memory. I started my business Nostaljik and I wanted to create a scent that would transport you back to a place and time to create a Nostaljik memory for me but also my customers. I have travelled quite a bit growing up and I wanted to create a range that you could associate with a location or memory. I would love for my customers to pick up and smell a candle and say “this reminds me of...” I feel memories are so important and personal, where we have travelled should not just be a photograph, but instead, a feeling evoking something in us all. It should be something special and something personal. One day in my kitchen I made a jasmine candle which I tried and tested again and again until I finally captured the essence that brought me back to my nana’s balcony. From then on I was adamant that I would recreate a reminiscent scent for all my candles, and so Nostaljik was created.

    As a devoted candle lover, I can’t recommend Nostaljik enough. The products are beautifully presented and the detail on the packaging is stunning, perfect for a gift. It took me a while to pick a scent as they have such a great range, but I ended up treating myself to the Paris scented Pomegranate Noir candle and I love it so much that I've already ordered another one! The scent is amazing and quite addictive, I can not stop smelling it, it permeates the house wonderfully. The customer service and delivery was also brilliant, they answered any queries I had promptly. Will be ordering again for sure, melts and diffusers are going onto my wish list!

    First I would like to start off by saying how amazing the service was, very well packaged and fast shipping. Second I actually happen to be Greek Cypriot myself and I’ve never come across a candle that actually represents Cyprus and captures the very essence of my motherland. Growing up my mother loved the smell of jasmine as she actually grew up with the smell in her village as a child. The smell is amazing, when I light the candle it actually does give me that nostalgic feeling,the brand name is spot on! Can’t wait for more to come, really excited. Thanks

    The Mykonos candle seasalt & sage was a wonderful edition to my new home. It was subtle and fresh, not overpowering at all and I could burn this candle day in day out! It complemented my home decor perfectly and the scent reminds me of summer travels . Definitely my favourite so far.... I’m excited to try the rest of the collection.
