Born out of a desire to break free from his shirt & tie life, Luke Smith began pouring candles in a spare room of the 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... 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 their name (they used to be Cotton and Wax Candle Co ). However the goal always stayed the same... craft quality products with American sourced ingredients that bring joy to other’s lives. As in the beginning, they continue to make each of their products by hand in small batches.

Each candle is hand poured, hand mixed, hand dipped, hand labeled, and hand package, each and every item out of their Fredericksburg, Virginia production studio.

From the beginning it had to be about more than just creating & selling a product. The love of animals is deeply ingrained in the Smith family so it was only natural to give back to them.

Starting with the first candle ever sold, 10% of profits have been - and always will be - donated to the support of animal rescue.
