Inspired by the hearth, now brought to life through fire. Our luxury 'Mountain' scented candles are available now.
Mountain Peaks Brought To Life Through Scent
Mountain is Thomas Clipper's fourth French-developed fragrance. It's inspired by a day exploring the peaks, followed by an evening relaxing into a red wine by a roaring cabin fire. So it makes sense that Mountain is now coming to life as a candle.
The feeling of alpine exploration and relaxation is evoked with a warm base of vetiver, guaiac and cedarwood. Zingy bergamot and aromatic spices bring freshness and balance. With this sophisticated and masculine scent profile it's perhaps no surprise that 'Mountain' has been selected as one of GQ's favourite men's fragrances in 2019 and 2020. Now you can bring Mountain to life through fire.

Such a sophisticated fragrance deserves exceptional burn performance. On top of that sustainability is always front of mind for Thomas Clipper. That's why we chose to use a paraffin-free soy-based wax and an 'eco wick'.
"Natural materials like the ones we're using burn at a lower temperature, making for a more subtle and accurate scent diffusion. This means a longer burn time, and results in a greater surface area of liquid wax pooling around the candlewick giving an excellent scent throw."
Stu Weston, Creative Director
Hand making the candles in small batches means that we can ensure that each candle is given dedicated care and attention, ensuring quality and performance.
Sustainable By Design
As with all Thomas Clipper products, we refuse to compromise when it comes to sustainability. The products we sourced for this new candle are natural, vegan and cruelty free. Our soy base is renewable and biodegradable in production and in use, being paraffin-free, it's better for the environment and for you. Our eco-wick is entirely natural, made from pure cotton interlaced with thin paper filaments.
Thinking about the after-burn life of the candle, soy wax also cleans up easily so the glass jar can be cleaned and reused afterwards. We've used ours as a toothbrush holder.
Quality, Not Speed
Production of the Thomas Clipper 'Mountain' Candle is carried out entirely by hand. We start off by gradually raising the temperature of the soy base to 70 degrees. We then let the wax cool down to exactly 60 degrees, add our Grasse-made 'Mountain' fragrance and gently stir the mixture. The wax is hand poured into our pre-warmed glass jars. The eco-wick is introduced using a wooden centering device to keep it secure and straight.
Each candle is left to set for 24 hours before trimming the wick and packaging up. Nothing about this process is rushed, and the result is the exceptional performance that the fragrance demands and deserves.
