A Brief history of Candleberry
Fowler residence in Frankfort, Kentucky
Birthplace of Candleberry, 1997
The first Candleberry candles were made in 1997 and sold in the Family store. Few of those candle-making methods developed by the family have changed. They are still handmade, with each candle different from the next, and each one considered a piece of art. And the same mixing process from years past is still used today for each fragrance—very precise and measured, with the primary focus being quality.
Today, 25 years and hundreds of new customers later, the target is still customer service, quality, sharing the enjoyment of an excellent fragrance with as many candle afficionados as possible and creating new products that please our customers. That vision permitted us to expand the Candleberry corporate headquarters and factory, which will allow us to better serve customers and create quality candles.
Innovation is our focus. We develop product lines that fit together conceptually and artfully in scent and design. An example is Candleberry’s line of Reminiscent fragrances of the home—decadent and foody—such as Hot Maple Toddy and Pumpkin Praline Waffles.
We invented the Kentucky Bourbon candle and created a full line of Spirits candles, with delicate but lively and spirited notes of bourbon, fragrances loved even by those who are not bourbon afficionados.
The new Coffee Shoppe candles have a variety of scents that engage your senses with unique and wonderful notes of select coffee blends. Nouveau candles are another recent innovation. These products represent our efforts to align color, scent, and presentation for a candle that can be used in a variety of decors. It is pleasing visually and has wonderfully soft fragrances.
