Wooly Wax Candles


The Wooly Wax Candle line evolved from a 20+ year chef career and an insatiable curiosity to understand the correlation between taste and scent profile. Both evoke a strong connection to memory and both start with endless combinations of base, middle and top notes.

Our goal at Wooly Wax Candles is to collaborate and to create a customized scent just for you.

The Social Part

Wooly Wax Candles


The Wooly Wax Candles story is a pretty simple one. It started with a strong drive to explore the correlation between taste and scent profiles, and a curiosity about how our sense of smell is perhaps the strongest trigger of memories and emotions. 

Though separate senses, taste and smell are intimately entwined. So the idea of creating a soy scented candle, inspired by my 20+ years as a chef, began with a dream of using base aromatic spices like juniper berry, long pepper or angelica seed. And then adding layers to that base. From there, the possibilities seem endless in creating aromatic scent profiles that have unique layers of meaning.

I like to work backwards from memories.  Formulating a scent can be challenging, but worth the journey. I create scents that remind me of different parts of my life -- like as a kid, when I sneaked into my father’s study, which always seemed to be soaked in a comforting bouquet of leather, wood and Scotch -- this combination was the inspiration for the Wooly Wax Burmese Teakwood candle. San Francisco Fog was inspired by memories of growing up surfing and detecting the differences between the essence of early morning, damp, dewy sand and late afternoon onshore breeze.  

These life-inspired candles are just the beginning for Wooly Wax.  I enjoy exploring these connections and finding new ones along the way.  I look forward to working with you to create a scent that is uniquely yours, that might just capture one of the most meaningful parts of your life. 

And so I ask:  who doesn’t love candles?

Natural Soy Wax

Wooly Wax Candles are made from 100% natural soy wax from U.S. grown soybeans, which create a longer, cleaner burn.

Our 8 oz. candles have a burn time of approximately 55 - 65 hours. Dang, that’s a long time! 

quality ingredients

 We use essential oils and the finest fragrance oils that are phthalate- free. NO parabens, NO sulfates, NO animal testing, NO dyes or chemicals. Just love. 


candle warnings

Don’t leave unattended and be sure to keep children and pets out of reach. Keep candles from drafty areas and let cool completely before handling. 

tips for a Killer burn

For the first burn, trim the wick to 1/4 inch, light it and let it burn for a couple of hours. This creates a 'memory' for the wax and helps ensure an even melt and longer burn.
