Boutique candle label, Little Miss London, was inspired by London’s fashionable neighbourhoods; exploring the diversity and vibes of the different areas England’s notorious capital city has to offer. All about adventure and fun, Little Miss London came to life to address the gap between ‘affordable’ and ‘adorable’ in the luxury candle market.
The original go-to crew include the lovely Little Miss Notting Hill, the vivacious Little Miss Covent Garden, the ever-refined Little Miss Chelsea and the mysterious Little Miss Camden.
The Little Miss ladies are growing up quickly in the world’s brightest, and most fabulous, playground! Our newest additions for 2018 include Little Miss Wimbledon, the centre court star, pretty Little Miss Primrose Hill, trend setting Little Miss Shoreditch and the ‘oh so classy’ Little Miss Mayfair.
All Little Miss London candles are hand poured and come with their own individual style and fragrance, a monogrammed lid and a luxurious 40-hour burn time.
‘Every Little Miss deserves love and beautiful fragrance. Inspired by London creating memories for you’
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE BRAND
Little Miss London’s founder, Linda Hendon, has travelled the world and spent most of her life living in Monaco. However, England has always been her home and throughout her time away she loved travelling back to spend time in her favourite capital city – London. Little Miss London was inspired by this passion and also her love for candles.
“Candles are a great form of escapism and can take you on a journey of discovery as the varying fragrances come to life. It’s something special to be able to capture a certain vibe in a candle. That’s what Little Miss London strives to do…. take you on a voyage of discovery, adventure and fun”
Inspired by London, here are the differing areas:
Notting Hill is a vibrant, trendy area. Casual cafes line bohemian Portobello Road, famed for its busy market selling antiques and vintage fashion. High-end restaurants, brunch spots and upscale boutiques cluster around Westbourne Grove. Huge crowds celebrate the annual Notting Hill Carnival, whose parades and calypso music reflect the area’s Caribbean roots.
Camden Town is famed for its market, a warren of fashion and curiosities by the Regent’s Canal. A haven of counter culture, the area is popular with tourists, teenagers and punks. The thriving nightlife scene includes live music in alternative clubs and old-school pubs, and major stars playing at the Jazz Cafe and the Roundhouse. Cafes bustle during the day. Nearby Regent’s Park has formal gardens and the London Zoo.
Chelsea is known for its affluent residents and the ‘posh’ shops and restaurants that cater to them. It’s a cultural haven too, with the Royal Court Theatre on Sloane Square and the modern Saatchi Gallery on the Duke of York Square. Close by, busy King’s Road is lined with mid- to high-end stores
Covent Garden is in the West End, London’s main theatre and entertainment area. Tourists fill its elegant, car-free Piazza, home to fashion stores, crafts at the Apple Market and the Royal Opera House. Street entertainers perform by 17th-century St. Paul’s Church, and the London Transport Museum houses vintage vehicles.
Primrose Hill is regarded as one of the most beautiful viewpoints in North London. During the summer months the banks of the hill become populated with families and young people who take out picnics to enjoy the open space and the glorious views over the capital city. Furthermore, with the tropical birds of London’s famous Zoo filling the air with their songs, it is a truly unique spot with a truly unique backdrop.
Wimbledon is an affluent residential area, home to the Championships tennis tournament and Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Museum. Indie boutiques and chic cafes line Wimbledon Village. The vast fields of Wimbledon Common draw walkers and cyclists, while smaller Wimbledon Park attracts families with its playgrounds and lake.
Shoreditch is an arty area adjacent to the equally hip neighbourhood of Hoxton. Young creatives and trendsetters fill the fashionable clubs and bars that surround Shoreditch High Street, Great Eastern Street and Old Street. An eclectic dining scene features everything from trendy chain restaurants and smart gastro pubs to artisan coffee shops and noodle bars. Vintage and design shops are plentiful.
Bordering leafy Hyde Park, Mayfair is an upscale district of elegant Georgian townhouses, exclusive hotels and gourmet restaurants. Its world-famous retailers include bespoke tailors on Saville Row and designer fashions on Bond Street. Shoppers also head to high-end Burlington Arcade and Shepherd Market, a cluster of independent boutiques and traditional pubs. Cool modern art galleries line Cork Street.
