5 reasons why you’ll love ester & erik candles

The Grey Work’s customers and team can’t get enough of these ester & erik taper candles and here are a few reasons why…

Denmark – long, dark winters. Beautiful, quality candles. The Danish are renowned for their traditional, quality candle making abilities. A candle can instantly change an atmosphere to make it feel cosy, warm and relaxing. ester & erik have created candles of the highest quality since 1987.

We discovered the ester & erik candles at the Parisian trade fair MAISON&OBJET in 2013 and have had a love affair with them ever since. The Grey Works are proud to offer a range of elegant tapered candles by ester & erik. These designer candles are handmade in Denmark and we stock them in over 50 vibrant colours.

1. They make the perfect gift

Our customers love the ester & erik candles and come back, again and again, to buy them – either for themselves or as a thoughtful gift. They also make a perfect hostess offering. CAUTION! You may become addicted!

2. They are an alternative to flowers

They make a fabulous alternative to a flower arrangement and will last much longer, unless you burn them of course. The candles also work beautifully with a flower display, which is why they are also popular with florists.

3. They come in a variety of colours…

The colour range that ester & erik offer is outstanding and they currently have over 80 in the range. The Grey Works stocks 55 at the moment and counting. The colours are TRULY beautiful and can look different dependent on the light.

…and there’s a colour for every season

As we stock so many colours, it’s only right we steer you in the right direction of what to choose first! We’ve picked a few colours that we think work best for the different seasons.

Winter: Our favourite colour for Winter has to be Deep Claret (44/2). We adore this colour for the Winter months. It is rich, moody, works beautifully with some greenery and comes into its own during the festive period.

Spring: Nothing says Spring more than a pastel. We love all the pastel colours at this time of year, but our favourite has to be Baby Pink (38). It’s light, pretty and looks beautiful with a pale grey and white scheme.

Summer: Eau-De-Nil (67) has to be our top pick for the Summer months. It’s also our best selling colour all year round. With its delicate whisper of colour, it’s sure to bring a touch of greenery into your home – it’s truly stunning.

Autumn: It’s no surprise that our favourite Autumn pick is Damson (42), a deep purple. This candle fits perfectly with Autumn – the warm, rich hue from this ester & erik candle is a treat for you and your home.

4. They’re beautifully handmade

The ester & erik brand is a family run business and the candles are hand made using a traditional timely dipping technique, whereby the cotton wick is dipped in paraffin and this process is repeated until the candle is thick enough. To finish, these candles are beautifully coloured by hand and then sold straight from the rack they have been made on.

5. The quality is fantastic

These candles will burn for approximately 11 hours and they are drip free as long as you keep them away from a draught.

These are just a few of the reasons why we are so passionate about the ester & erik candles we sell. Anyway… enough reading about them, why not try them for yourself. The Grey Works sell these candles for £6.95 per pair and they are presented in a sleek, black presentation packet – what’s not to love!
