About Us

The Richmond Candle Co. trades on the land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We acknowledge their sovereignty and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.



✨ We create products that look stylish and smell great
🌏 Everything is made locally, by hand
😊 + We can't promise you won't become addicted!


The story of The Richmond Candle Co. started in 2020 during the Covid-19 pandemic after Simon lost his job in the travel industry. With a lot of time on his hands and a passion for creating, we started making candles to sell locally and help cover some of the mortgage.

When we found people loving what we did, it inspired us to seek ways to grow awareness, so we took a risk and started promoting our products in pop-up stands in shopping centres and that's when the business really took off.

The communities we visited were incredible and one of the best things about that experience is the wonderful group of repeat customers who now continue to support our business.

While we can no longer do shopping centres full time due to our day jobs, the repeat and referral business we gained from them has helped us grow and now we love knocking on the door of our repeat customers to have a chat when we deliver their orders!

The support from our customers has been incredible and we owe our continued success to them.

Thank you for visiting The Richmond Candle Co.

Simon + Johan
