My son Alessandro, known to everyone as Ally, is my inspiration for Ally Candles.
In 2018 Ally died from Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, an undiagnosed heart condition affecting the electrical functioning of his heart. He was a fit and active 17 year old and never displayed any symptoms that anything was wrong. I now know that every week, in the UK, 12 young people die from sudden cardiac death; yet, through screening, 90% of these are avoidable.
I love candles. Since Ally's loss I've become absorbed by the enjoyment and challenge of developing really great candles. Lovingly hand crafted using soy wax, for me, their natural purity and distinctive, sensual fragrances make Ally Candles a symbol of youth and hope.
