Alexia Peck was born in New York and raised in London to a French mother and a Guatemalan father. After spending her early years in the UK, she returned to America in her teens, where she finished high school and attended university. Always artistic, Alexia majored in Sculpture at college, and went on to train to become an interior designer. Having completed her degree at the renowned Inchbald School of Interior Design, she became a freelance designer.
Alexia’s passion for scent, and the memories it can evoke, is what originally inspired the creation of the Alexia Peck range of candles, room scents and diffusers. Our sense of smell can work as a memory bank. A particular scent will often bring a room to life, define the seasons or transport you to a different place. Significant moments and special occasions come sharply back into focus, triggered by just one fragrance. The Alexia Peck range consists of decanted snapshots of her life. Each one has its own personality, and signifies an important time or place.
“As with memories, I want part of the candles I have created to last a lifetime. My candles are unique. They all have their own individual scents, but they also contain a special gift: the lid. It is a beautiful paperweight that can be cherished once the candle is gone. It is a keepsake. It is a memory to hold onto forever. It is Alexia Peck.”
