Top 25 Candle Stores in Shopify

 

We looked into the luxury candle industry and we could not find any mention of this market is saturated. It's growing at a steady pace and new trends keep emerging like bath bombs, scent diffusers, etc. 

The pandemic isn't over yet, but there are still chances for new businesses to get into a well-known industry like candles. As the memory of the pandemic fades, the intensity of consumer demand is expected to rise again, especially among people who make more money and those who are more affluent. This means that companies that focus on product innovation will have a lot of chances to win customers in the next normal.

Luxury candles have become more popular in recent years because more people are interested in eco-friendly home decor and self-care products, which makes them more popular.

If you want to sell handcrafted candles manufactured from all-natural and sustainable goods, or if you already have a brick-and-mortar candle shop and want to grow, Shopify is the right answer for you!

We’ll share with you 25 of the best candle stores on Shopify right now to prove how this platform can be a big help to your business.

  1. Apotheke

Packaged in a sleek black box, the Apotheke natural soy candle is made with coconut wax and charcoal. Everything started in Chrissy Fichtl's kitchen. In 2011, she launched Apotheke, and in 2012, her husband, Sebastian Picasso, took over the production side. They started off selling at farmer’s markets before moving on to flea markets in Brooklyn, where they now create their soaps and candles. Their charcoal candles are vegan, non-toxic, and free of animal testing due to the use of a soy wax blend in their production. And, while the $38 price tag for a candle is a bit steep, this occasional splurge makes one's home more interesting.

  1. Candelles

The need to create was born out of loss. After a tragic family affair, Kelley turned her craft into a full-time job. She used Candelles to fund her grandmother's medical expenses. The touch of hand-making candles makes every candle special and one of a kind. This started the Candelles story and has allowed it to expand exponentially over the past eight years. From the very first scented candle that took Kelley eight hours to create, the collection has grown tremendously with over 150 scents to choose from.

  1. Whiskey River Soap Co.

The Whiskey River Soap Company is committed to making funny yet classy-looking candles that contain a snarky and witty saying that is sure to make anyone smile.

  1. Harlem Candle Co.

 

Celebrating the Harlem Renaissance, the Harlem Candle Co. was born in 2014 when founder Teri Johnson created her first candle in her kitchen. Her scented candles are inspired by the music and rich culture of New York City's historic Harlem neighborhood, drawing on inspiration from legendary jazz musicians and poets.

From the base notes to the top notes, the Harlem candle captures the essence of an era like music or poetry. You won't find a candle with a better story to tell.

  1. Goosecreek

People who love candles really love candles. They are often willing to pay a premium price for something they feel is quality and something that exudes luxury. Goosecreak delivers on all counts. Goosecreek Candles provide a unique experience, and hundreds of unique scents, and do it in an environmentally friendly way without sacrificing the customer experience. They even have a line of manly scented candles for the gentlemen out there.

  1. Rewined Candles

All-natural soy wax is poured into vessels made of repurposed wine bottles, offering a sleek appearance that highlights the wine-inspired fragrance and beautiful design on every candle. Whether your preference is for fresh, fruity wines such as Riesling or Merlot, or Chardonnay and Sangiovese, each carefully crafted Rewined Candle will evoke your favorite vintage with its subtle wine-inspired appearance and aroma.

  1. The Common Folk

Commonfolk is an Australian candle company that's quickly gaining a global following. It's no wonder, given the quality of their products, which are made from renewable natural soy and coconut wax, never contain any nasty chemicals or toxins, and are always hand-poured in Australia using custom Australian-made fine fragrance oils and enriched with essential oils.

This means that their candles not only smell amazing, but they also offer 80 to 100 hours of burn time. The jars they come in are reusable too. The brand encourages its customers to reuse them as pen holders on an office desk, or as cotton bud holders in one's bathroom.

  1. Candlefish

If you love candles and candle shopping, Candlefish is where you want to be. This shop is the dream of a group of candle makers who started Rewined Candles (also on this list). Their shops feature a 100 Candle Library with 100 unique scents curated for every candle lover out there. You won't find fragrance notes on their candle labels and this is intentional. The purpose here is for the fragrance to come first when deciding what you love or don't. Candlefish simply gives each candle a number, #1-100, and the Chandlers memorize a coding system to help you find your candle soulmate(s).

  1. Lilin + Co

Artsy, but not pretentious. Minimalist, but still luxurious. That's what Lilin+Co is. It's a Malaysian-founded brand, made by Malaysians for Malaysians. Their candles are gender-neutral and hand-crafted in small batches with 100% premium soy wax and essential oils, so they're not only gorgeous-smelling but also kinder to the earth. The products are also affordable without sacrificing quality or aesthetics.

  1. Posh Candle Co.

Posh Candle Co. doesn't just make candles—they make memories. The company's mission is to inspire women to be their authentic selves, and it does that by creating gorgeous hand-poured 100% soy candles (and accessories) that come in containers with memorable sayings and scents such as "Bad and Boujee", "Grey Sweatpants", "Allergic to Bulls**t", "I'm High Maintenance AF" and more. They make perfect gifts and giveaways.

  1. Les Ruches

Les Ruches pay homage to hardworking bees by creating the healthiest, most luxurious beeswax candle collection out there.
