Castelbel makes scented candles, soaps, skincare and home products that are inspired by the fragrances of Portugal. The company name comes from Castelo da Maia, the small town in Northern Portugal where they are located, combined with the Portuguese word for beauty, ‘beleza’. Castelbel blends traditional methods with modern technology to produce fragrances that capture the rich spirit of Portugal.
Castelbel candles come in two main collections: Castelbel Ambiente, which uses natural scents like lavender, orange and verbena to evoke the essence of a Portuguese summer day, and the sophisticated Portus Cale range, which is inspired by the latest trends in fashion, colour and fragrance. All Castelbel candles have a burning time of around 35 hours and are hand-poured into elegantly decorated glass. Perfect as gifts, they are beautifully packaged with engraved lids and collectible presentation boxes decorated with traditional Portuguese designs.
