Sophie James Limited is a British Luxury Lifestyle brand run by a mother-daughter team, Sian and Sophie Kosinski. The company was formed in 2016 after Sophie finished University with a First Class Honours in Business management the previous year. Sophie James is named after Sian’s two children, Sophie and James, and is very much a family business.
Our main objective when creating Sophie James was to bring a new and different spin to the candles that were currently available in the market place. Many candle brands label a candle by relating it to the notes within the scent or associating it to a personal memory invoked by the smell of the candle. However, each of our candles has its own object which is linked to childhood memories that we as mother and daughter shared whilst travelling the world and also going about our lives.
We were inspired to combine our special memories with our personal collection of objects to the different notes of the individual fragrances, culminating in the creation of a unique product and illustrating our vision onto our beautiful packaging.
Setting up Sophie James has been an incredible journey for us all to share together and we look forward to creating and sharing many more of our personal memories and objects with our customers.
