Born out of a desire to break free from his shirt & tie life, Luke Smith began pouring candles in a spare room of his house. With the support of his wife, Mandy, he turned this old-fashioned craft into a business. One that would allow him to share the power of scent with the world. Each scent is inspired by an amazing adventure, a childhood memory, or simply the great outdoors. Scents of a life well lived.
As the business has grown, lots of things have changed including the name (we used to be Cotton and Wax Candle Co ). However, the goal has stayed the same: craft quality products with American-sourced ingredients that bring joy to others' lives.
Just as they started, Luke and Mandy continue to make each product by hand in small batches. They hand pour, hand mix, hand dip, hand label, and hand package each and every item out of their Fredericksburg, Virginia, production studio.
