We make clean candles for cozy living. By hand.
We are Brooklyn Candle Studio. Our mission is to create candles with captivating scents, beautiful minimalist design, and the best ingredients. Essentially, everything we love about luxury candles, but at accessible prices. Our dreamy scents are inspired by nature and travel, moments and memories.
We use 100% soy wax derived from American-grown soy beans for an eco- friendly, clean burn and lead-free cotton wicks. Our candles are petroleum-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan. We are an eco-conscious company, opting to use recyclable packaging and shipping materials and as little plastic as possible.
Each of our candles is wicked, poured, and labeled by hand from start to finish by our team of artisans in our studio space in Industry City, a hub of of makers, designers, artists, and small businesses. All of our employees earn fair wages and benefits: paid time off and subsidized healthcare, dental, and vision.
We like to think of our wares as full sensory experiences—from the artful minimal packaging to the warm candlelight and delicate aromas that fill a room. So, go ahead, light one up.
About Brooklyn Candle Studio Founder, Tamara Mayne
Tamara Mayne is fragrance obsessive and designer who founded Brooklyn Candle Studio in 2013. A former art director in the fashion industry, she sought to create beautifully packaged natural candles at an affordable price point. Originally from Virginia, Tamara studied Studio Art and Economics at the University of Virginia before moving to New York City. After working a series of jobs in finance and tech, her desire to work in a creative field led her to enroll in the Fashion Institute of Technology to study Graphic Design in 2009. She was working as a designer and art director in 2012 when she decided to make candles as gifts for family with a candlemaking kit from her local craft store and became deeply obsessed with aromatherapy and the art of candlemaking. The rest, of course, is history.
