About Us

Dexter & Mason was created by Alison Shea to supply luxury candles in indulgent fragrances for gifting and for every day.  She works from a small home-studio in Holywell overlooking the Dee estuary where she hand-pours pure soy wax candles in small batches.

As an habitual candle gift-giver Ali struggled to find an elegantly-presented natural product, natural seemed to mean rustic rather than contemporary; so rather than resort to paraffin she decided to get practical, get trained and get creative.

After countless trials, a fair few failures and plenty of feedback from her long-suffering husband, family and friends, she perfected her signature candle. A 30cl simple glass tumbler in a range of gorgeous hand-blended fragrances. Soy wax burns cooler than paraffin so the candles last longer and, as it is an entirely natural product, they also burn cleaner – mission accomplished.

As for the eponymous Dexter & Mason, they are her gorgeous family pets, Dexter the mischievous Springer Spaniel and Mason the loyal Labrador Retriever!

What a beautiful fragrance. The room was filled with the heady smell of bluebells and reminded me of my visit to Scotland earlier this year.

This lasted over three months. The scent was just as the candle, giving a constant strong scent. Very impressed and will definitely be ordering more.

This is one of those fragrances that takes you back to a fantastic holiday experience you’ve had in your life. Also love the Whisky scent with my evening ritual of a wee dram.
