In 2018 I began my own line of scented candles based on places I've lived and traveled. Hand-poured in limited editions, the candles evoke a specific time and feeling within the place that inspired them.

 

It's been a challenging and rewarding experience to develop everything about the brand and product - from creating the scents and designing the labels and packaging to countless hours spent in the lab testing materials to maximise burn time and scent throw. I've gained a wealth of hands-on knowledge about production, website design, marketing and distribution. 

 

I've learned what it takes to run a small business from the day-to-day operations to determining price points based on market research and analysis of profit margins to meeting with potential stockists and carefully selecting vendors that align with the brand image and ethos.
