The Port of Liverpool Building

The ultimate Liverpool souvenir is here

Souvenirs are always the same. A tacky fridge magnet, a postcard that’s all curly on the corners by the time you get home, an I ❤️️ Liverpool mug, a coaster.. Do you ever actually look at that tacky fridge magnet and all of a sudden memories come flooding back from your incredible trip? I don’t think so.

The Port of Liverpool Candle

There’s a new momento about and its knocking the magnet off the top spot. What is it? It’s a candle. But it’s no ordinary candle, this is an Owen Drew Port of Liverpool candle. This limited edition candle is Drew Cockton’s latest addition to his brand, Owen Drew Luxury Candles’ multi-award winning collection.

All Owen Drew candles are hand-poured and made entirely from natural (and vegan!) ingredients.

Drew blends Soy wax with essential oils to create the candle. No colouring or dyes are used and the natural wooden wick makes a crackle sound when it burns. The natural ingredients mean that no smoke/soot is given off when they burn.

We are so excited to be launching this very special limited edition fragrance as part of our Autumn Collection. Introducing “Port of Liverpool” by Owen Drew - inspired by our city’s wonderful maritime history and a nod to my family’s own seafaring heritage. This scent encapsulates the essence of Liverpool’s legacy as a trading port of the British Empire, with notes of Orange from Ceylon, Jasmine petals from India, Orris Roots from Malta, lemon peel from Gibraltar, sweet Juniper from Cyprus and the tiniest hint of pine from Canada, this beautiful, multifaceted fragrance is perfect for your home this Autumn. Let your imagination sail away to the four corners of the globe where the sun never set on the British Commonwealth. 🇬🇧 🌊

Where can I buy the Port of Liverpool Candle

Well, you’ll have to take the short trip across the Mersey. If you haven’t taken a ferry across yet, this is the perfect opportunity to! Alternatively, hop on a Merseyrail train to Hamilton Square and it’s a 5 minute amble to the divine boutique.

The brand new Owen Drew boutique is located in a delightful former warehouse building in Birkenhead called Pacific Road.

Inside you’ll find cobbled pathways, tramlines, dinky brick houses and a Chelsea style shop-front. The scent of freshly burned candles is apparent as soon as you arrive at Pacific Road.

Port of Liverpool is available in the traditional glass candle style. For those who are limited on luggage space, try the wax melts that pop-out and go on top of an oil burner.

Owen Drew candles are also available to buy online and can be shipped worldwide. Head to

The Scent

Owen says, “My family has been intrinsically linked with Liverpool and its seafaring heritage for hundreds of years. Many of my relatives worked as merchant seamen and my Grandfather Edmund Drew is actually the Mersey’s last operational river pilot.”

About the fragrance, Owen said “It really celebrates Liverpool’s past as the most influential port in the Commonwealth and so the candle is bursting with rich scents from the four corners of the British Empire including aromatic spices and exotic fruits.” - And we can vouch for the incredible scent, as we’ve already purchased one! 😍 The candle has notes of Orange from Ceylon, Jasmine petals from India, Orris Roots from Malta, lemon peel from Gibraltar, sweet Juniper from Cyprus and the tiniest hint of pine from Canada.
