‘Create your own opportunities’

These were our Belgian father’s words to us, as children, growing up in the Irish wilds of Glencree Valley. A place where scented, rambling hedgerows  and flowing rivers merged with a classic Flemish design aesthetic. In our family we were always encouraged to go out into the world, to cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit and bring new ideas to life.

Max Benjamin was created 12 years ago from Orla’s love of candle making, discovered on a summer spent in America during college. She brought this love home to the Wicklow mountains and merged it with her love for the outdoors and her family lifestyle, naming Max Benjamin after her twin boys Max and Benjamin

Our studio is still based in the Wicklow hills, nestled amongst our family homes. Here, we have our own fragrance library and produce our own candles, diffusers and lifestyle range. Our approach to sustainable design is inspired daily by our family and our surrounds. We love nothing more than continually exploring ways to bring the power and wellbeing of fragrance to our customers’ homes and lives.
