- Our Story -

2204 was created by Simon Gallacher & Adam Conway.

From working as tour managers in the music industry, having a love for unique fragrance is probably not what people expect of us. However, we are forever intrigued by scent.

Whenever life’s memories are recalled, it can always be associated with scent – how a person or a room smells in that instance is always the strongest reminder. Moved by the power of this connection, 2204 set out to create a way of recalling memories and creating new ones. After hours, days, weeks and months of trial and error, experimenting and refusing to accept anything short of perfection, we finally arrived with what we believe to be the best smelling candles on the market.

2204 is a project of passion, a soothing creation to allow your home and that of your loved ones’ to smell nothing short of fantastic. All candles are 100% vegan, cruelty free and sustainable. Using ethically sourced soy wax, carefully selected scented oils and fully recyclable packaging. Being vegan and sustainable are both especially important to us as we only have one world.

The 22nd April 2017 (22.04) is the day Simon made one of the biggest decisions of his life, one he swore he never would - the decision to tattoo his hands…

“I distinctly remember a close colleague of mine saying “Don't let the candle of life burn out and you have any regrets." From this statement, I took it onboard and made the jump. This would be me visibly marked for life and for all to see. Since that day, I've never looked back or been happier.”

2204 - a true turning point in life, steering us both in the direction we continue to follow. That of freedom, self-certification and genuine happiness.


Sometimes the people who need the most convincing are ourselves...
