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!
