Sophie James Mayfair The Scarab Beetle Candle 220g

  • £48.00

The Scarab Beetle Candle from London-based Sophie James Mayfair is a rich and woody fragrance that is synonymous of ancient Egypt and Sumer. With notes of Bergamot, Cardamom, Ginger and exotic Ylang, the candle’s heart notes of Cedar and Clove add intensity, whilst Jasmine, Water Lily, Oak and Sandalwood notes are enhanced by tropical and warming Balsam of Benzoin, Vanilla Pod, Dried Fig and Patchouli. Cedarwood oil was potentially the very first oil to be extracted from a plant and its first recorded use was for preserving in ancient Egypt, and as a base for paints in Sumer when combined with ground cobalt compounds to produce a blue pigment. Housed in a striking glass votive and made from 100% vegan-friendly soy wax, the candle is adorned upon the front with a gold scarab beetle design as a reminder of its ancient beginnings.

Why you can feel secure shopping with us

When you shop with us, our secure server encrypts all of your personal information, including name, address and credit card information. We use SagePay which are an industry leader in secure internet transactions. SagePay are used by thousands of other UK businesses for transaction security.

Industry leading transaction security

All transaction information passed between our website and the SagePay Payment System is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and all messages from SagePay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely secure in the knowledge that nothing passed to SagePay can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.

Internationally recognised encryption and data storage

Once on the SagePay system, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards used by, among others, the US Government. The encryption keys are held on state-of-the-art, tamper proof systems in the same family as those used to secure VeriSign's Global Root certificate, making them all but impossible to extract. The data they hold is extremely secure and they are regularly audited by the banks and banking authorities to ensure it remains so.

Private network links to banks

SagePay has multiple private links into the banking network that are completely separate from the Internet and which do not cross any publicly accessible networks. Any cardholder information sent to the banks and any authorisation message coming back is secure and cannot be tampered with.

Employee access


No individuals within our company or SagePay are able to decrypt transaction information or cardholder data. Their systems only allow access to our most senior staff and only in extenuating circumstances (such as investigations of Card Fraud by the Police). Your card information is secure even from their own employees because the systems never display the full card numbers, even on administration screens.
