About Us

​​​​​​​I opened Candle Essence in Intu Metrocentre Gateshead in 2007, when I was just 24 years old.
I am an approved Yankee Candle Specialist and Destination Store, stocking the largest range of Yankee Candle with over 80 fragrances... All at competitive prices!
We also offer a large range of home fragrance products by
WoodWick, Candleberry, Ashleigh & Burwood, Wild Berry Incense and more.

We don't just sell Candles either... walk into Candle Essence and have personalised gifts designed and made same day, while you shop! From Christmas Baubles, Keyrings, Coasters, Mugs and Plaques... to Tea Light Holders, Candle Labels, Cushions and much more.

Our shop is located upstairs in The Village between the Blue Mall and the Green Mall.

I have been awarded:
Retailer of the Year FSB Award 2015 and Young Entrepreneur Award Finalist.
Intu Metrocentre Independent Retailer of the Year 2017 and 2018 Finalist.
