The Candle Shop

The Candle Shop is a boutique candle-making house founded by Susan Murphy in Khandallah, Wellington.  Susan was a lawyer for 20 years but decided that candle-making is more rewarding!!  She has taken her requirement for perfection and an eye for detail from law across to creating high quality soy wax candles with premium fragrances.  The Candle Shop uses local ingredients and business wherever possible and the candles are eco-friendly including soy wax, cotton wicks and phthalate free fragrances.

The Candle Shop currently has two main collections: Everyday Candles, hand-poured into contemporary travel tins which has a modern “industrial” look with a secure lid to allow easy transportability. Secondly, bespoke limited editions created via a collaborated with local perfumer Francesco van Eerd of Fragrifert Parfumeur in Kelburn, Wellington.  The first collaboration has resulted in the Night Sky Candle, inspired by Matariki. 

The Candle Shop is passionate about creating high quality soy wax candles with premium fragrances.  More fragrance is added than usual which allows the candles to produce an amazing aroma both lit and unlit!!  The fragrances reflect nature and will absolutely delight your senses.
