MEET JESSICA - FOUNDER & DESIGNER

I have always been fascinated by the darker side of nature. From my humble beginnings into the foray of dark literature, to a young friendship circle running our own witches "club" (albeit a potting shed), brimming with essential oils and incense. The smell of ylang ylang & musk still lingers in my throat today. It was inevitable that some day I would craft my own little pieces of magic.

In 2019, I felt a cosmic pull toward perfume, I listened to that calling and after 4 months of selling a cruelty free brand, fell in love with fragrance. I was inspired to create products of my own that were more in tune with my personal style and ideology and so The Scent Corvus became my life's work.

On a personal level, philanthropy is really important to me where women's rights, domestic violence and female initiatives are concerned. I am always working to develop ways we can support women's causes, in particular the fight against domestic violence. I am focused on ways to give back throughout the growth of my company and have launched the Corvus Candle School to support other entrepreneurs & start-ups on their journey to success with their handmade businesses.

Style wise, you will find I have a passion for luxury, high end homewares, contemporary, monochrome, Scandinavian aesthetics merged with gothic architecture. We are the purveyors of gothic opulence & artistry with simplicity at its heart. 

MEET LEE - ART DIRECTOR

My husband Lee quickly became Art Director, tasked with capturing my creations in their best light & telling our brands story. Lee is a visionary, although he doesn't quite realise it. Working as a freelance photographer, he spends most of his days telling stories, a sports figures rise to success or a gritty, through the keyhole look at the work that goes into getting there. Lee brings all the pieces together to present to you, just what I envisioned in my minds eye. I have the intuition & instinct, he has the creative flare.

 

THE COMPANY

I founded the company in 2020 at the height of the pandemic. Although we had massive challenges to overcome (what business didn't!) we managed to grow a cult following online and TSC began to evolve at lightening speeds. Thanks to our amazing community of fragrance lovers, the first 2 years of business have seen us nominated for multiple awards, become a Great British Entrepreneur Finalist in 2021 and win Home Fragrance Brand of the Year 2022 at the Prestige Awards. The company has evolved beyond just candles and wax creations for 2022, into a Candle School for our peers to learn how to fast track their own growth (sharing knowledge is what we do best!) and our own Perfumery & Apothecary. We continue to consider our impact in the industry and how to bring a slice of luxury & designer to the alternative home.
