upcycled candles.

Our candles all have a past. They have history. In previous lives as drinks, they were witness to late night parties, romantic dinners, good times and tough times. They've been there for deep conversations, for celebrations, and they've been enjoyed alone.

Now, they have a second life as candles. As you'd expect, they aren't all straight lines and perfect curves. You might even spot a minor wine mark on the back label, or small ding on a can. We think it adds character, signs of a life, lived. But we never sell anything that we wouldn't be glad to have in our own home. Oh, and delivery (to mainland UK) is included in all our prices.

All of our candles are made from 100% soy wax and we only use fragrances which are vegan and cruelty free. 

We hope you like them, and that you'll enjoy sharing some
late night tales of your very own.

our story

our story.

Hi I'm Gemma 

I started A Late Night Tale in 2020 during lockdown when the wine bottles started mounting up and I couldn't take them to the bottle bank!   

I have always been passionate about recycling and want to do as much as I can to protect this amazing planet we live in so starting a business were I can take something and give it a new life seemed like the perfect venture for me and I haven't looked back. 

All of our candles are hand made and poured in our Berkshire workshop. We only use the highest quality soya wax with cruelty free & vegan fragrances to ensure all our candles burn for a long time and smell amazing! 

I really hope you like them
