Our Story

Founder Olivia Burns was born and raised in Coleraine, Northern Ireland.

Her childhood was an extremely happy one and all of her memories serve as personal inspiration for her candles’ scents, stories and brand aesthetic.

At 21, following completion of a degree in Marketing and Management from Newcastle University, Olivia made the journey south to London with her university pals to start her career in marketing.

For almost 10 years, she worked in both big global companies and smaller start-ups helping them with their marketing strategies, campaigns and branding - yet she still had a desire to create her own brand from start to finish.

Olivia has always been a self-confessed candle lover but in January 2019 her fascination with the link between scent and how it helped her to recall her own memories grew. She started experimenting with wax and fragrance oils as she strove to create the ultimate range of scented candles inspired by her own scent memories.

Being a marketer, Olivia wasn’t satisfied with just having a great range of products. She was determined to make them look just as amazing as they smelt and so she spent almost a year working alongside the very talented illustrator Jessica Smith to create fun and vibrant packaging which told a story.

"Creating Olivia’s Haven has brought me so much joy and fulfilment - I hope you get as much pleasure out of burning your candles as I did in creating them.

Thanks for being part of the journey."
