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 more girly sweet sh*t.
My candles are not for everyone. They're often strong, mysterious, boozy and not what you'll find in your average homewares store. In fact, you'll never find my candles in a homewares store, but more likely in a whisky distillery, bottle shop or men's barbers, I'm a little against the grain, and so are my candles.
I make candles for me.
And I make candles for men and women that like me, are unfiltered, unapologetic and genuinely crave the real and authentic.
I hope you love them as much as I do.
Owner, Thornbury Candle Co
