For centuries candles have been created to give out light and provide fragrance to homes throughout the world. Chandlers have understood the power of fragrance to alter mood and ignite memories.
Until now, the world relied on these chandlers to develop candles and scents but Chandler & Me changes all that. We’ve created something new and exciting in the scented candle market. It’s a fun and easy way to make your own beautiful soy candles at home using eco-friendly ingredients and a stunning range of exclusive fragrances.
You control the ingredients and the fragrance, making your very own candle in minutes, whilst re-using your jar time and time again.
Experienced chandlers on your side
Making a good scented candle can be a tricky business, and rather like roasting and then brewing your own coffee, it can be a little haphazard. There’s a lot that can go wrong and various factors can affect the final outcome.
The Chandler & Me team have been involved in the Soy Candle industry for many years and what we noticed was that a lot of home hobbyists were struggling to manage the many variables involved in candle making. We realised that almost all budding candlemakers were making the same basic mistakes and ending up with a poorly made candle with little scent throw, often giving up in frustration.
We also realised that for many retail candle-lovers, their habit was costing more than their budgets would allow.
So we set out to find a way to enable everyone to make consistently good candles at home, without all the hassles, calculations, or equipment of old. With our customers’ in mind we had four very clear goals for our product ….it had to be fun and easy to use (ok that’s two in one), affordable, it had to look at home in your kitchen, but most importantly the candles had to perform as well as, if not better than, what you can buy from a store.
The key to making consistent quality candles is in ensuring all the ingredients work together to achieve a smooth top, great fragrance throw, a clean flame, and maximum burn-time. It is about carefully controlling temperature and selecting exactly the right ingredients.
So over the past 12 months, our team has been busy developing, testing and fine-tuning a complete range of ingredients and programming the heating and stirring elements of The Candle Maker unit to ensure total consistency and accuracy of the candle making process. When you make a candle using our Candle Maker and ingredients packs, it is almost impossible to make a mistake.
The Candle Maker is designed in New Zealand by experienced chandlers, we hope you like it, and we hope you enjoy the pleasure of creating something beautiful as much as you enjoy using and gifting your candles.

The power of scent
The area of the brain that processes emotions, is tied to the brain’s olfactory bulbs, which process smells. This close connection in the brain helps make the relationship between smells and moods, scents and memories, quite strong. By creating and lighting a scented candle we can trigger memories and alter mood. Imagine having that effect on anyone walking into your home?
