A scented candle and wax melt artisan maker based in the Hampshire Test Valley village of Oakley.
Chalk and Cheese Candles and Wax Melts was launched in 2018 and after years of experience in the luxury gift industry selling other people’s creations and owning an engraving service, Michelle took the plunge and started making her very own products. She now creates prime quality candles and wax melts from her own studio in the Hampshire Test Valley.
Everything is handmade from the candles and wax melts to the creating of the labels. The ingredients are vegan-friendly, non-toxic, environmentally responsible and ethically sourced, and the packaging is either recycled or recyclable. Michelle isn’t afraid of experimenting with scents and shapes, and you will find the candles and melts evolving and changing in the online shop each season. This is one of the reasons you can order your sample before deciding which fragrance to buy.
Living so close to nature, on a day off Michelle loves to take a walk in the countryside followed by a hearty pub lunch, and then relaxing at home with a good chick flick and a lit candle.
