Why Scents of Humour?

At SaveMoneyCutCarbon we are passionate about showing you how to make easy eco swaps for products where you may not have realised a more sustainable option even existed! Queue vegan soy candles from Scents of Humour.

Scents of Humour was started by Aaron and Jack, in Aaron’s kitchen in Bristol. One of the reasons we are excited to support Scents of Humour is that we know all too well what starting a business from your kitchen table is like.

Scents of Humour live up to our big hairy audacious goal of sustainability without compromise. Aaron is a product and packaging designer, and Jack is an aerospace engineer, which means their candles are the absolute epitome of precision design and long-lasting scent – all with a few laughs thrown in for good measure!


Scents of Humour are hand poured in Bristol and by handmaking smaller batches, their carbon footprint is drastically reduced by having a short supply chain.

Each Scents of Humour candle is made with natural, sustainably sourced soy wax with cotton wicks for a clean, even burn. The fragrances used are cruelty free and never tested on animals.

Soy wax is a natural and renewable resource. It’s biodegradable and has a lower melting point than paraffin wax. Because of this, soy candles will burn slower and longer than paraffin candles – saving you money.

Paraffin is a by-product of the petroleum refinery process, yes, the very same petrol you put in your car! Which means that when it burns it produces soot, albeit a small amount – but as we always say at SaveMoneyCutCarbon it’s all about small changes.
