Hello! I'm Sean Rouse, the creator of Regions Beyond.
My passion for candle making started at a very young age when I helped my grandfather make taper candles (dinner table candles). This was a very hands-on job that my grandfather did in his 'golden years' and sold at various farmer markets. It wasn't until I got a little older I appreciated the craftmanship that my grandfather put into his work. Always admiring his work, I wanted to create my own unique candles. I have always been inquisitive with fragrances and it was in 2014 I turned his and my love into a small business called Regions Beyond. Regions Beyond is a lifestyle candle brand using only the best materials in candle making and the finest quality perfumes, which have each been individually handpicked and blended by myself. I hope you can let Regions Beyond capture your imagination and transport you to another world.
Although my Grandfather and I made many candles we never made fragrance candles. Sadly he gave up his passion before I was old enough to help his hobby grow. It wasn't until many years later whilst working in the immersive entertainment industry, I discovered how the power of scent allowed me to evoke a strong emotional response and transport visitors to anywhere that I could imagine. For example, I worked on set dressing a Rain Forest scene, it was on this job I collaborated with a fragrance house to create a bespoke Rain Forest scent. We pumped a delicate green ozonic fragrance into the scene which really bought the attraction to life and is what pushed me to create my own fragranced candles. I'm sure my Grandfather would be proud that I'm continuing to make candles and keeping a family legacy alive.
Influences for my Signature Collection stem from British culture and country living; I love old buildings, countryside, and British heritage, and each candle has notes to reflect this. A lot of my fragrances use dark woody undertones. My candles are crafted with care and attention, before undergoing rigorous testing to ensure that the highest quality is achieved each and every time. Regions Beyond use premium ingredients and materials from reliable sources.
