Meet Stormzy’s candle maker!

Oxford-based Jessica Tucker has already won an A-list following after taking her skills from the movie industry into her cheeky candle-making business

What do you get for the guy who has everything? A perfect replica of his favourite pet that took 200 hours to make, having been cast in coconut wax and scented with lemongrass and ginger oil, of course.

And that was how Stormzy’s Rottweiler Enzo took to being immortalised in a candle (assuming he doesn’t light it) by Oxon-based candle maker and special effects pro, Jessica Tucker.

Jessica’s day job is Creature Mould Making for the film and TV industry and her glittering CV includes Star Wars and Jurassic World. With her skills in moulding and sculpting she launched her company TuckersFX Candle just over a year ago designing and sculpting candles likes roses, serpents, globes and, our personal fave, the booty. And already she’s making candles for VIPs like Stormzy.

They’re all made of coconut wax and for every candle bought, Jessica donates to a charity that plants 11 trees! The candles come in five colours: ivory, brown, forest green, mustard and burnt orange, and scents include mint and rose, white lily and rose, coconut, lemongrass and ginger, and aloe vera and cucumber. So they look hot and smell sexy. Win, win!

Want a TuckersFX Candle? Of course you do! Head to Instagram to win either a gorgeous rose or booty candle in a choice of colour and scent.
