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.

Owen Drew - The Liverpool Collection

There’s a new momento about and its knocking the magnet off the top spot. What is it? It’s a candle.

Allow us to introduce The Liverpool Collection by local brand, Owen Drew.

Owen Drew is a multi award-winning, local British fragrance house which produces scented candles, luxury soaps, perfumes, bath oils and other home fragrance and bath and body products. All Owen Drew candles are hand-poured and made entirely from natural (and vegan!) ingredients.

Now, Owen Drew welcomes a new line of products; The Liverpool Collection. We think that The Liverpool Collection is the PERFECT souvenir to take back home from your trip and remember our great city by.

The Liverpool Collection consists of three candles; Port of Liverpool, Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. Can you think of a better trio?!

Founder of the brand, Drew Cockton, explained that he was stirred to design the Beatles-inspired scents after discovering that he shares the same bloodline with John Lennon. 

"My great, great Grandfather was Charles Gildea from Londonderry in Ireland. He lived from 1840 to 1916. His sister, Eliza Gildea, was John Lennon's great Grandmother. I suppose it makes us very, very distant cousins!" Drew explained.

The Port of Liverpool Candle

A true celebration of Liverpool’s maritime past, The Port of Liverpool candle brings together a collection of scents from the four corners of the globe. Taking inspiration from the exotic goods and never-seen-before imports from the British Empire and beyond; this evocative scent is designed to transport you to the bustling ports of Bombay, Hong Kong and Ceylon and of course Liverpool; the gateway to the rest of the world.

The Strawberry Fields and The Penny Lane Candles

A musical sensation of the senses. If you were lucky enough to be a part of the swingin’ sixties and you still believe in yesterday, Owen Drew's two new scents are guaranteed to transport you, mind, body and soul to Liverpool’s Beatle-mania glory days, perfect for any music fan!

‘Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes, there beneath the blue suburban skies.’

With notes of leather, amber and patchouli, and breath-taking hints of sweet orange and lavender, Penny Lane will surely be on your mind and orchestrating all your senses. Patchouli and Lavender are renowned for their abilities to provide relaxation, ease stress and anxiety and lull you into a dreamy, good night's sleep. In the words of Beatles legend John Lennon, ‘Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.’

‘Let me take you down,'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields.’

Another nostalgic and uplifting Beatles classic, The Strawberry Fields candle is completely different to anything Owen Drew has ever sculpted before. With notes of delicious strawberries and the faintest tang of rhubarb, sour to sweet, aromatic to fruity, a mouth-watering zingy fragrance. Strawberry Fields can’t help but bring a smile to your face. A fresh and citrusy scent that will have you dreaming of lying in the grass of the legendary Strawberry Field
