In 2000 Pat Duggan became one of the first scented candle manufacturers in Ireland, setting up the company today known as Scent from Ireland. With his dedicated team he perfected each product he sold and as popularity for the products grew so did the company.
Scent from Ireland soon became synonymous with quality and other companies started to approach Pat about manufacturing on their behalf. So, in 2016, Pat decided to set up Bespoke Candles, offering a complete premium bespoke candle-making service to companies worldwide.
In recent years, Bespoke Candles has reached new heights, increasing capacity with cutting edge machinery and a move to a larger premises. In 2020 Pat’s design for a hair conditioning candle won a Gold Standard Innovation Award. Today Pat is still developing innovative new products and we proudly run our private label service as well as manufacturing promotional corporate giftware.
