Friends of Trouva: Our Lovely Goods
Sustainable candle brand Our Lovely Goods is the brainchild of Nigerian-born Aberdeen-based husband and wife duo Ebi and Emmanuel. The pair started creating their luxurious home fragrances in 2019 as an extension of their home. They believe life is all about celebrating the small moments and set about sharing this ethos with their customers.
Each vegan soy wax candle in their collection is an homage to snapshots of the every day, from a rare moment of peace curled up with a good book, to putting your favourite records on and dancing round the kitchen, or gathering round the table for a family feast.
With warming scents ranging from Wood, Sea Salt & Sage to Teak, Honeysuckle & Amber, their candles even evoke memories of more dream-like places, with their Somewhere Far Away, Golden Hour and The Old Library scents transporting you elsewhere.
We caught up with co-founder Ebi to find out more about the brand.
