About Us

Welcome to The Richmond Candle Co.

Simon & Johan here. We run a small business based in Richmond (Melbourne) that produces a range of affordable luxury scented candles. When we set out, we wanted to create candles that not only look great in your home, but are fragranced exactly like you would expect from reading the description, and are priced at a level that is affordable for their everyday enjoyment.  

Each of our products are crafted with a purpose in mind, to have you 'love where you live'.

We blend premium 100% natural + renewable soy wax (heated to precisely the right temperature) with our luxury fragrance oils, many of which are also boosted with essential oils. Then, after the blend has cooled to the specific temperature for pouring, we set in high-clarity moulded glass with a gorgeous natural timber lid. This creates a candle that not only looks beautiful, but has your home or workspace smelling absolutely sublime.

As you can imagine, many candles are burnt in our home, so naturally we're conscious of the impact on our environment and also the air that we breathe. For these reasons, we only use 100% natural and renewable soy wax in our products. It's non-toxic, vegan and cruelty-free.

Soy wax is plant derived and completely renewable, unlike common petroleum based paraffin waxes used by some of the large candle manufacturers. Soy wax is better for our planet, has the benefit of burning longer and doesn't give off harmful chemicals.

Pairing the right wax with the right fragrance is what makes for a great scented candle, we've curated a range of premium fragrances that you'll be sure to fall in love with. You can find out more about our fragrances here.

Thanks for visiting us today and if you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to get in touch.
