On July 12th of this year, Kirsten Oelrich and her son launched Hughes Candles. Based in Oklahoma, this mother and son duo shared a love for woodwick candles but just couldn’t find candles with fragrances that they loved. So they spent almost half a year designing fragrances, getting the perfect formulation of soy wax and designing the labels etc.
Each candle has a distinctly beautiful fragrance that replicates nature and their fragrances have a pure smell without a hint of artificiality.
‘We wanted our candles to be authentically American and reflect the spirit of excellence in their craftsmanship, each candle is meticulously handcrafted. The labels reflect vintage American and each candle is named after a famous American author.’
With great care, Hughes candles are handcrafted and hand poured in small batches, They light and test the candles to ensure they are long lasting, clean burning, provide an exceptional crackling wood wick candle experience, and are a healthier choice for your family.

A few of my favourites are:
The Longfellow Fragrance: Clean, cool, spicy.
