Hopping Hare Candles

A passion project born from an obsession with scent that's evolved into an indulgent range of candles and home fragrances to delight the senses, hand made in the heart of Northamptonshire.


What to do if you’re a trained perfumer with a candle obsession? Start a business making scented candles, of course. Hopping Hare‘s highly scented candles are made sustainably using bee-friendly rapeseed oil with essential oil blends and seek to evoke memories and mood, with each scent carefully crafted by owner Claire Hopper to uplift, calm, relax and energise, which pretty much sums up everything we need in our lives.

Claire has painstakingly developed her own unique blends using the highest quality essential oils and natural rapeseed wax to create an irresistible range of candles, diffusers and home fragrances as well as bespoke blends, which make lovely unique gifts and wedding favours.

We are obsessed with the Rare Pear and Tonka Bean fragrance and the exotic Rose and Oud to transport us to warmer climes, and there are seasonal collections to reflect changing flora and and moods through the year, from fresh Spring Mint to comforting Winter Spice. You can even buy your candles in refillable containers to reduce waste.
