Starting out as candle hobbyists, Amy and Erol have since crossed over into "candle enthusiast" territory. The idea hit Amy after a particularly inspirational bath (yes, there were candles). She takes the role of Chief Scent Investigator, exploring ways to evoke warm memories and good feelings, while Erol takes care of the Building Things By Hand department. The duo started out in their tiny one-bedroom apartment, building reclaimed wood wax warmers on the porch floor. And while their space has grown since, they're still focused on making everything by hand, in small, good-smellin' batches.
