akron candle company was the idea of founder and head chandler Blair Scott in the summer of 2017.
Blair and his wife Liz, owner of stationery boutique Lovely Somethings, were traveling through upstate New York and brainstorming ideas for her shop. Blair found himself intrigued by the idea of creating a physical product and upon leaving one of the shops declared “I’m going to make candles!” Starting a small business is never that simple of course. After much testing and trials, the first editions of akron candle company tins were launched in the fall of 2017, followed by the gold glass and blimp tumblers for the holidays that year.
akron candle company prides itself on using premium soy wax and scents, cotton wicks, quality tins and hand-painted glass tumblers made here in Ohio. Each candle is hand-poured with love from their home on Yellow Creek. As every Akronite is always excited by the sight of the blimp soaring high in the sky, his candles have received an equally welcome reception from their packaging and more importantly their scrumptious scents. Hopefully they will bring you as much joy as Blair has creating them and they make the perfect hostess gift, or any gift.
