Lost Time is a luxury hand poured soy wax candle fragranced with the scent of an orange blossom madeleine cake dipped in lime-flower tea, that brings back to life the nostalgic aroma of a treasured childhood garden. Inspired by Marcel Proust’s Á la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time), Lost Time is a complex, romantic fragrance that revives memories of a more simple past.


Lost Time is housed in a matt black glass jar and a recycled rigid matt black box patterned with a metallic copper print that references madeleine cakes in an art deco style. The candle is made from a blend of sustainably sourced soy wax and beeswax and a bespoke fragrance blend of essential oils and high-quality safe synthetics. Cotton wicks ensure a long, clean burn. All Literati & Light luxury candles are carefully poured by hand in England using artisan techniques.

Lost Time can be purchased with a polished copper stainless steel lid or a handmade lid crafted from beech wood or without a lid. We recommend using a lid to extinguish your candle and to protect it from dust. Lids can also be used as candle coasters.

Candle Care: to ensure that you get the best burn from your Literati & Light candle please burn it for as long as it takes for the pool of melted wax to reach the sides of the glass (usually three hours) on each burn. Please trim the cooled wick to 0.5cm before lighting the candle each time you burn the candle. If the wick has reached longer than 0.5cm whilst the candle is burning, please extinguish the candle, allow the wick to cool, trim the wick and relight. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
