Sampaquita is the national flower of the Philippines.

Literally translated as “I Promise You”, the sampaquita flower is a symbol of purity and fragility, coupled with fidelity and resolve. The scent opens with an unmistakable Summer bouquet, bursting forth with sun-kissed lychee set on a canvas of bergamot, grass oil and magnolia flowers in full seductive bloom.

  1. We recommend the first burn is lit long enough for the wax surface to be entirely melted to the edge of the glass.
  2. Trim the wick before relighting, making sure the wick is still centred and straight.
  3. If the wick has dried off-centre, light the wick and gently manoeuvre the wick back to the centre using the matchstick.

    The wick may now be too long and puffing out black smoke. If this is the case, blow out the candle, cut the wick and relight.
  4. Keep the candle clean, use kitchen roll to wipe the residue off the top of the glass.
  5. Position the lit candle away from draughts and flammable materials. Do not burn candles on surfaces susceptible to heat damage.
  6. Never leave a lit candle unattended or near children and pets.
  7. Never allow the candle flame to touch the side of the glass.
  8. To extinguish the candle, simply replace the gold lid to starve the flame of oxygen. Leave to cool down before picking up.


The story unfolds: a young diplomat from the Philippines was seconded to the Embassy in Delhi for two years. Obliged to leave his girlfriend behind because they were unmarried, he promised to marry her on his return.

Not only does he fulfil his promise but returns with Indian Sambac flowers (jasmine) to grow in their garden. The Philippine climate favours the flowers where they thrive and are ultimately renamed Sampaquita, meaning “I promise you”.
