What started with my lifelong obsession with perfume has now morphed into a full-blown candle habit. Every candle I saw in the store was just so girly, there was just nothing out there that catered to my slightly masculine, unisex taste. I was over it. So I said stuff it, and I started making my own.
Starting from my tiny kitchen in my unit in Thornbury in 2016 selling to friends and family, Thornbury Candle Co has grown pretty damn fast. So I'm guessing there's a lot more of you out there like me, who just said enough is enough, no girly sh*t.
My candles are not for everyone. They're strong, very strong with maximum fragrance loads, often mysterious and boozy and make a statement. When I wear perfume, I want people to stop me on the street and ask me what I'm wearing, and I want the same for my candles.
I make candles for me.
And I make candles for men and women that are unapologetic and do not give a sh*t.
I hope you love them as much as I do.
Owner, Thornbury Candle Co
