Services at Earl of East 

Workshops: Earl of East’s creative workshops include candle-making, terrazzo tiling, terrarium building and bouquet arranging.


Earl of East’s own collection of home fragrance, candles and bathing products are sustainably made, and their homeware items are created from eco-friendly materials that are kinder to the environment, such as aluminium, glass, wood, organic textiles and repurposed plastics.   The store also champions independent designers and makers that create small batches of their products, incurring less waste.

Reasons to love Earl of East:

They’re independent: the brand started life as an enthusiastic side-hustle selling hand-poured soy candles from a stall in east London’s Netil market.

You’re guaranteed to get something unique: every Earl of East fragrance comes with its own ‘scent story’, revealing the inspiration and evocation behind the fragrance blend.

They’re demystifying bespoke fragrance: As Firmin puts it, “We aim to break down the idea that being able to talk about scent is just for the experts. We all have noses after all”.
