Honey & Tobacco Mini Candle
The Honey & Tobacco candle has top notes of sweet honey. At the heart there is a blend of cinnamon & nutmeg, while the base note contains amber, patchouli and musk to complete the profile. These mini candles are hand-poured into our 60ml amber jars with our signature Oré mi label and a black gloss lid. This candle burns for up to 14 hours.
When I was younger, my dad would bring my siblings and I pure dark honey from his trips home to Nigeria. I was mesmerised by it – its rich, dark colour, its sweetness – and I wanted to make a candle that would represent that wonder.
I combined the sweet, floral honey with earthy tobacco, to bring a deeper note to the profile, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, amber, patchouli and musk. I would like to think that one day my dad might keep bees on his farm in Nigeria; I need more honey!

About the designer…
Oré mi, – an expression which means my friend in Yoruba – was founded by Karen Olla in 2019. They create handmade lifestyle products with luxurious, lasting scents. Each one is made in south London, inspired by their Nigerian heritage. In the fast-paced, digitally connected world we live in, our collective wellbeing is often treated as an afterthought. Oré mi believe that our senses are powerful; and that through the ritual of lighting a candle or exploring new scents, we can transform our space and immediately alter the way we feel. Most importantly of all, the brand was born out of her desire to break the taboo which surrounds the topic of mental health in the Black community. Share images & positive stories of a Black childhood and support and celebrate African lifestyle products.
