Who we are??
Like many of us, we have been allured by fine fragrance and the ambiance of a glowing candle in our homes. After having our daughter we only wanted to burn the best and researched paraffin candles and realized it was as if we were burning petroleum oil (a refined gasoline product) in every room!! Yuck! Not good! Having some knowledge of the craft, we decided to go for it..
With our passions and past experience (We both worked at Illume Candles back in the day, forever grateful!!!.....) With his artistry in painting and drawing and mine in crafting and a love of perfumes since the young age of 10. We decided to create our own unique fragrant candle line. We wanted our candles to be LA inspired, rich in culture, and what's LA without old english?? Our fragrances and names of our fragrances are all unique and come from our own living in LA experiences and/or sometimes from our travels and foods.
We believe that the products that we have created are an extension of who we are and what we love to do. We are incredibly passionate about our products and receive great joy in creating products that are greener than what you get from the mass market with eco-friendly ingredients and we never cut corners.
So, rest assured and breathe easy, knowing that while burning a NoHo Candle you too are...lighting the path to a greener future!
