Anecdote Candles is a candle company that was founded in 2018 by two friends, Whitney and Kate. The idea for the company came from their shared love of candles and the stories that they can evoke. Each candle is named after a different anecdote or memory, and the scent is designed to bring that memory to life.
For example, their “Sunday Morning” candle is designed to evoke the feeling of lazy Sunday mornings, with notes of coffee and vanilla. Their “Bonfire” candle is meant to bring back memories of summer nights around the fire, with scents of smoke and cedarwood.
The candles are made using a blend of natural soy and coconut wax, and are hand-poured in small batches in the USA. They are also cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.
Since launching, Anecdote Candles has gained a loyal following and has been featured in publications such as Oprah Magazine and Forbes. The company has also expanded its product line to include room sprays, diffusers, and other home fragrances.
