Our Story

Mood enhancing scents to refresh your home.

Hi! I’m Maame, I grew up in Ghana and I'm a Financial Controller, hence the name Purscents. A blend of my profession and passion. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I started expressing myself through creativity to help lift my mood and lighten the monotony of staying indoors every day.  I tried painting and growing vegetables but I also found myself burning more candles than I ever did before.

In the summer of 2021, my husband and I went away one weekend where we had afternoon tea in a garden café. I was transported into a beautiful rural setting by all the scents that surrounded us: roses in bloom, fresh lavender and zesty lemongrass combined with calming chamomile and elderflower aromas.  I was inspired to re-create these wonderfully complex scents in our home to remind me of this moment. That's when the concept of our aromatherapy brand was born.

At Purscents, our idea is to craft fragrances deeply inspired by nature that will not just refresh your home but enhance your wellbeing too. I have a personal preference for woods, ferns, and citrus so that’s where most of my scents are drawn from.

As a mum of two and coming from a country that’s impacted by deforestation, I take ethical and environmental issues very seriously. All our components are either recycled, recyclable, reusable, or biodegradable.

Living a fast-paced life in London can be intense at times, and so embracing the bounty of mother nature helps us slow down at times as we navigate through the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Studies have shown that aromatherapy products can aid relaxation, relieve stress, lift your mood, and promote better sleep, so what better way to unwind than by lighting a candle as you indulge in your favourite book, sink into a bubble bath, or simply just take a moment to yourself.

I hope you love our products as much as we love creating them.

Our Ingredients

What goes into our products matter that is why we do our best to ensure our ingredients are sustainably sourced, vegan-friendly, and cruelty-free.

WAX

100% plant-based blend of canola and coconut wax. Unlike soy, rapeseed grows in the UK and in Europe and so it has a low carbon footprint and coconut is harvested by hand and doesn’t require pesticides or fertilizer. Our wax is biodegradable, non-GMO, and offers a clean, long-lasting burn.

DIFFUSER BASE

100% vegetable glycerin derived from renewable sources. It is vegan, cruelty free, biodegradable and not harmful to human, animals, or the environment.

SCENTS

Forget overbearing, synthetic fragrances. We only use 100% pure essential oils and extracts in our products because its not just about making your home ‘smell nice’. Our scents are designed to have therapeutic effects and, hopefully, enhance your wellbeing too.

JARS & BOTTLES

Our high quality food safe borosilicate jars and bottles are easy to repurpose as the perfect storage in the home.

WICK & REEDS

Crafted from cotton, our wicks are free from any other artificial substances and our reeds are 100% rattan wooden sticks.
