Born on the island of Guernsey, Sarafumi is a thoughtfully created natural candle and skincare brand developed to unite fragrance and memories holistically for the mind, body and home.
Founded by Sarah Kelly, the name ‘Sarafumi’ was created from research of the word perfume, which means ‘to smoke’ (per-fume), preferring the Italian word ‘fumi’ (fumes), Sarah merged ‘Sara’ with ‘fumi’.
Sarafumi originated from Sarah’s passion for honeybees, which led her down a path of fragrance discovery, combining natural waxes with essential oils. Each product is hand-made by Sarah and is designed to stimulate individual senses and produce a uniquely comforting, enjoyable environment making new fragrance memories.
The island of Guernsey continues to be an inspiration to Sarafumi. The brand aims to promote the natural beauty of Guernsey through their creations and develop products with natural fragrances the earth has to offer. The islands historical language of “Patois” is included in the candle’s product names, keeping their roots to where the brands journey first began.
Sarafumi was born with conscious design in mind utilising selected, natural ingredients from responsible suppliers. The brand provides its clients with full transparency and education of ingredients used within their products. Sarafumi are also committed to continually supporting various charities.
