A house is brick and mortar, what makes it a home is what we do with it. Look at the blank walls and paint the canvas, beautify every corner, down to the smallest detail – the scent.

The smell is often the last thing on our mind when it comes to our home but actually has a huge impact on our well-being, mood and feelings of stress and anxiety.

Oscar Wilde once said "I can resist everything except temptation," well, at La Jolie Muse, we study the art of fragrance and essential oil mixology to bring you aromatic scented candles that are sure to tempt you.

Join us on a journey of sensuous discovery...
