Candles, cameras and Colin Firth Making ourselves at home: the story behind our Home Fragrance photo shoot

For our new campaign photo shoot, we needed a space that would fit with our identity. We needed somewhere unmistakably London. Somewhere magnificent but eccentric, contemporary but full of character.

We used over 50 Molton Brown candles to set the scene

When we opened the door to one of London's most intriguing residences, 33 Great Portland Place, we knew its shabby walls and grand fireplaces were the perfect setting for highlighting the beauty, fine craftsmanship and color of our luxury candle collection.

From hosting wild parties for style icons such as Kate Moss, to serving as a backdrop for scenes in The King's Speech, never has 33 Great Portland Place smelt so good as when over 50 Molton Brown candles (from Piccolo to six-wick Grande sizes) were burning in its rooms...
