I've always had a passion for anything creative and after years of mooching around craft markets myself I decided it was time to step out of the office and start in April 2015 Purple Gecko Gifts was born.


Fragranced Soya Candles - sit back, light it up and relax!


After months of testing to find the perfect fragrances I'm proud to present these lovely natural soya wax candles. The Eco Soya Wax supports sustainable agriculture and does not contain any petroleum, paraffin, animal or beeswax products. Its consistency allows for candles with a strong and pure scent throw.  I pour them all by hand in small batches of ten. Currently available in travel size tins.


Current Fragrance Range:


Spiced Apple

An edible smelling fragrance with top notes of baked apple cider, orange and lemon, resting on a sweet base of vanilla and nutmeg.


Lavender with a twist

A rich, smooth fragrance opening with cool bergamot, lemon and lavender enhanced by basil and geranium. A heart of warm spices, rose and fern is supported by a sumptuous base of patchouli, moss and amber.


Coconut & Lemongrass

A fruity accord opening with notes of lemon, lemongrass, Greenleaf, coconut, apple and a hint of pineapple, leading to a floral hints of lily and rose on a base of soft woods and musk.


Parma Violet & Lime

A classic parma violet fragrance with hints of lime, rose, jasmine and lily, with a background of musk and iris.


I also make decoupage mirrors and coasters and sell at local events and online in addition to Arcade Artisans. More information can be found on my website. All of Purple Gecko Gifts are handmade in Cheltenham, in the heart of the Cotswolds.
